In winter, people are seen layer beautiful Indian textiles with not very aesthetically pleasing sweaters, taking away the overall impact of the beautiful textiles look. Tanira Sethi, with masterâ€™s degree in textile designing and who has had fashion passed on to her as heritage, thought of coming up with a textile innovation, she re-interpreted woven heritage with a contemporary, artisanal touch like Cashmere for conventional Indian wear.
Tanira has created a line of Cashmere saris on a never-done-before scale, including the worldâ€™s first ever Cashmere lace sari
In the past, in Kashmir, the double-sided Doshala was very popular. But, it never caught on because the fabric used to be really thick, so, it wasnâ€™t easy to drape. Inspired by the idea, Tanira took on Cashmere, but decided to produce saris that are lightweight and practical to wear.
Taani by Tanira Sethi is line of pure cashmere saris â€™s collection goes by the name of Taani, is three-tiered. One segment includes pure, woven Cashmere saris with geometric and modern motifs, the second is a limited-edition collection which features hand-painted designs.
The most interesting, however, is the Cashmere lace sari, which is the first of its kind, made with painstaking detailing. This one was extremely tough to produce, and took almost one year of R&D. The sari incorporates fine Cashmere Leavers lace fabric which was conceptualised by Ezma Fine Cashmere and woven by Beauvillian Davoine France. This is the first time a sari has been produced with this rare form of lace, Tanira said.
The collection of 100 per cent pure cashmere saris keeps to a neutral colour palette with richer accents of reds.
Taani by Tanira Sethi will be available January, 15 onwards, at Patine, DLF Emporio, 344, Second Floor, DLF Emporio, Nelson Mandela Marg, Vasant Kunj II, Delhi
