Saanvi Dress in B&W Endless Knot Block Print
Our new Saanvi dress has long full sleeves, contrast front and back solid panels, hand shirring along the waistline with a tie. The ruching technique is traditional to Ladakh which is created using a loose thread stitch that pulls to secure the multitude of tight pleats.
The Endless Knot. A symbolic knot and one of the Eight Auspicious Symbols. It is an important symbol in Hinduism, Jainism and Buddhism and an important cultural marker in Tibetan Buddhism. It symbolizes Samsara i.e., the cycle of birth, death and rebirth and intertwining wisdom and compassion. We block printed this design as our expression of this beautiful symbol.
Hand weaving muslin fabric is a showcase of craftsmanship aiming to evoke a feeling of woven air with its lightness. Woven using hand-spun yarn, the fabric has a unique drapeability that is light and airy for everyday wear.
