There are many but Pinkshink definitely has an edge with its enviable range of handmade dress materials and sarees.
Handmade dress materials are the ones that are hand crafted by Indian weavers using traditional skills and techniques like block printing, kamalkari, batik, daabu ec.
Handmade dress materials for women be it for salwar kameez or kurtas, come with the advantage of being unique in terms of quality, durability and suitability for all climates. Handmade cotton or silk dress materials are woven with the best quality threads using traditional art.
Yes, they are. The beauty they bring with them would force you to maintain them with extra care. You should just wash dark colours separately and dry them in shade.
Block printing or woodblock printing is the process of printing patterns on textiles, usually on cotton, linen or silk, with the help of wooden blocks. Block printing is done manually and hence is a slow but beautiful process.
Batik is a process for making designs on fabric like Tie Dye, Shibori, etc, using wax on fabric to prevent dye from penetrating the cloth. Wax is applied to fabric, followed by the dye. The selected areas of the cloth are blocked out by brushing or drawing hot wax over them, and the cloth is then dyed. The parts covered in wax resist the dye and remain the original colour.
Kamalkari is a process of hand painting dress materials with pen using natural dyes.
Pinkshink’s handmade dress materials can be used for getting tailor-made salwar kameez, churidars, palazzos, Patiala salwar or even western dresses. One dress material comes with fabric for Kurta, fabric for churidar/salwar/palazzos/pants and a dupatta/chunni. This can be used for making salwar kameez and since it’s a fabric, you can even experiment and get western dresses--long, short, tunics, skirts etc. made.
If there is no hurry, you should go for an unstitched dress material as you can get it stitched as per your choice, size, taste and requirement.
Salwar kameez is a traditional outfit for women which includes –salwar, which is a bottom wear and is a pair of loose pleated trousers mostly tapering to a tight fit around the ankles, kameez, a top wear or a shirt that can be stitched in various styles, and a dupatta or a chunni.
Churidars are body hugging bottom wears mostly worn with traditional kurtas both by men and women.
Palazzos are a pair of loose and comfortable bottom wear worn with suits ad kurtas mosly by women.
Yes, salwar kameez can be worn without a dupatta as well. In fact, if you have a dupatta/chunni and you don’t want to carry it in a traditional way, you can wear it like a scarf too.
The standard dimensions are: Kameez-2.5 meters, salwar-2.5 meters, dupatta/chunni-2.5 meters.
With 2.5-meter fabric, churidars, palazzos and regular salwars can easily be made but Patiala salwar requires 3.5 to 4 meters of fabric as it is a pair of pleated loose salwar.
