Purely handwoven Katan Benarasi, this saree is a delight to the naked eye! Reminiscent to the pretty pink candy floss in those long lost carnivals, or near to the pink of the romantic dusk, the base of this saree is dipped in prettiest powder pink, one can ever lay eyes on. While the entire tapestry of the saree is adorned with authentic golden benarasi zari work, its border is bejewelled with illustrations from the forests, weaved in benarasi meenakari threads. In fact it is owing the these beautiful forest motifs of colourful flora and fauna, that this saree got its name Miskeenah, meaning the humble daughter of nature. From weaning mulberries, to weaving motifs inspired by nature, all by the toiling hands of the indigenous weavers, what are these sarees, if not pristine produces of nature itself? Go on, get yourself Miskeenah, and wrap yourself in nature’s embrace!
Miskeenah : When the purple pink dusk, made love to the powder blue dusk, she was born. Ether gifted her the boon of chirpy sweetness, Earth gifted her humility. The waters gifted her tranquil serenity and the fire gifted irresistible passion and panache. Embraced by the bounty of nature, Miskeenah was a true epitome of nature’s elements: Tender but tenacious, frivolous but fiery, elegant personified but ever so humble. She was god’s favourite child.
