A SILK TALE BY RITU KUMAR

      Ritu Kumar presents a capsule collection of re-produced Vintage Hand-block woven silk saris. Inspired by the traditional print heritage of Ritu Kumar, the collection spans a range of chintz, paisleys and bold florals prints in a lively colour palette. From cream, yellow to fuschia, reds, turquoise and emerald tones, the saris are crafted using fabrics such as Murshidabad silk and Silk chinnon and are available with matching unstitched blouse pieces. Perfect to be worn for luncheons and day soirees, the printed saris are also suitable wear to work option for the corporate women.

   The collection is silk screen printed creating a multi-coloured image using several hand screens. One colour has been printed at a time to recreate the vintage effect of the hand-block prints from the Ritu Kumar archives. The range celebrates the hereditary skills of the Kolkata weavers as they weave ancient designs in originally conceived aesthetics. The traditional and beautiful motifs make silk saris one of more famous and desirable textiles in India. This collection is reminiscent of the printed saris from Ritu Kumar repertoire in the 70's and 80's and is aimed at the brand patrons for whom a Ritu Kumar printed sari was a wardrobe staple.
