Saree is worn extensively by the women of the Indian subcontinent. The word can be traced to the Sanskrit word “satika,” as mentioned in the oldest known Hindu literary works, which refers to the female apparel. The “satika” was an ensemble set which has undergone a few changes over the centuries.
Initially, sarees were made from handwoven cotton and silk cloth and dyed by the help of natural dyeing agents like turmeric, indigo, lac, and red madder. Nowadays, however, sarees are manufactured with the help of machines and synthetic agents. Naksheband through its earnest attempts wants to revive the art of manual saree manufacturing.
We aspire to provide to our customers, handwoven, hand-dyed and hand-embroidered saree, that is quintessentially Indian!
