100 percent handwoven, this Jamewar Benarasi, is a rare among its creed, to say the least. Our Jamewar ‘Karam’, is inspired by the life of Maharani Sita Devi of Kapurthala, the wife of Maharaja Jagajit Singh. Endearingly called ‘Karam’, Sita Devi was a true blue feminist, way ahead of her times. Be it coaxing her king to educate herself in 5 European languages, or donning her sartorial fashion choices, wearing nothing less than cartier or arpel, Sita Devi was even covered by Vogue, Paris! This intricate Jamewar and beautiful pure Benarasi floral loom weave, is extremely delicate and eloquently dazzling in its capacity. While the shot tone colour scheme of pink, green blue and gold of the saree is a woven analogy of regalia that Sita Devi belonged to, its arduous meenakari floral design is metaphorical of the queen’s lustrous femininity. Moreover, the over all pastel colour scheme of the mughal paisleys inexplicably gives out a prisian aura, symbolic of the Maharani’s innate affinity for the city! Royal, chic and topnotch, Karam, without qualms would be a sui generis addition to your saree wardrobe : an heirloom piece, perfect to be passed on from this generation to the next.
