The first Bihart collection is a mix of five different weaves. Jharna; fishnet; extra weft; hand-spun cotton (made on kisaan spinning wheel and ambar spinning wheel) and Tussar.
Jharna and fishnet weaving styles are native to Bihar and are almost extinct with the introduction of motorized spinning wheels which churn out more fabric in lesser time. And Tussar is now a house-hold name but only a fraction of what is available in the market as ‘Tussar’ really is authentic.
Bihart’s sincere efforts are spent towards reviving these weave styles. The cotton is made from hand spun yarn and the silks from thigh reel spun, giving it the texture it has.
Look out for our ‘Baawan buti’ sarees in Extra-weft weaves. Each saree has 52 motifs. Each depict an age-old tradition. And each takes about two weeks to weave!
