Fabriclore, a one-of-its-kind online platform that curates modern and traditional fabrics from all over India, has launched a collection of Banarasi and Lucknowi Chikan fabrics, in exquisite designs and vibrant colors.
Fabriclore sources the fabrics directly from the masters of the traditional craft and even from the traditional keepers, making them value for money. It relentlessly enhances its collections with the best and widest range of designs being added everyday on a real-time basis. In addition to its existing collections of Indian Handlooms and Contemporary Fabrics, Fabriclore has launched two new ranges of Banarasi and Lucknowi Chikan fabrics.
The holy city of Banaras has always attracted aristocrats and royalties alike, with its luxurious fabrics, especially Banarasi Silk, which is world famous for its rich and royal look. Banarasi work can not only be seen on the regal Silks but also on other fabrics such as cotton, handloom and even modern-day factory manufactured textiles. Keeping in sync with this, Fabriclore has launched a collection of Banarasi fabrics with intricate zari motifs and designs dipped in bright, vibrant colors.
The collection is an expression of Banaras’ ancient textile craft and the fabrics in this collection are available in Taffeta and Chanderi Silk variants. The designs range from vibrant Booti motifs to tie &dye printing on Jali work and Taffeta Jacquard work, adorned with brocade on the borders. Fabriclore is also planning to launch Zari weaved figurines with interesting motifs like peacock, elephants, rose, etc., designs to be woven within with the fabric itself.
In addition to Banarasi fabrics, Fabriclore has also launched its range of Lucknowi Chikan fabrics, a craft style known to be as old as 3rd Century BC, loved by people across India and the rest of the world. Chikankari is known the world over for its intricate embroidery on soft fabrics in soothing, pastel colors which provide great comfort in summers. Fabriclore’s range of Lucknowi Chikan includes original hand-crafted Chikankari work, on georgette and cotton blends in soft pastel colors like blue, teal, pink, white, etc. Some of the fabrics in this collection also showcase the fine mukeish work, adding a glamorous sheen to the fabrics.
Banarasi Collection: Rs 269 per meter onwards
Lucknowi Chikan Collection: Rs 616 per meter onwards
