Another member of the pure silk family, georgette is a variant of pure crepe silk. The translucent nature of the fabric makes it well-suited for an evening out or a spring day. Georgette has a gauzy feel and comes in different grammages which contribute to the elegant fall of the fabric. These pure fabrics have an excellent ability to absorb colour, offering numerous colour permutations to the designer. At Sakhi, one can find georgette, sporting elegant hand-block prints, also featuring mild hand embroidery.
One of the earliest and simplest methods of textile printing, Block printing is, very simply put, the printing of patterns on textile using incised wooden blocks. Block printing involves myriad steps, but the most important step is the preparation of the block which determines the quality and clarity of impressions. The block is then dipped in the desired dye and carefully placed adjacent to the preceding impression of the block as per the design. Block print is popular across many Indian states, each region being known for its own, unique variant. Sakhi gives a contemporary twist to block print by combining modern graphic designs with traditional Indian motifs. The key differentiating elements of the designer ensemble are the hues used in varied colour themes.
