Quick Overview

The artist chose the rare color of mehendi green for this maheshwari dupatta. Further beautified with intricate patterns of bagh print in red and black across the length of it, the colors come alive in the shine of silk to make this a perfect piece of art.

The Maheshwari sari is one of India’s finest handloom fabrics which originated in Maheshwar in Madhya Pradesh. It is characterized by a delicate weave resulting in a gossamer-like fabric. The story goes that the ruler of Indore, Ahilya Bai Holkar designed the first Maheshwari sari to present to the Peshwa kings. Since she was not partial to floral motifs, the austere queen commanded the weavers to design only geometrical motifs. The weavers drew inspiration from the detailing on Maheshwar Fort, and wove intricately patterned fabrics that came to be known all over the world as Maheshwari weaves.

The Maheshwari fabric is known for its lightness, elasticity and fine thread count. Majestic in its designs woven from a mix of silk and cotton and embellished with gold zari, it is famed for its reversible border. The Pallu is particulary distinct with its five stripes. Designed by royalty herself, the royal Maheshwari is vibrancy in an unadulterated form.
