Shaded Sarees & The Indian Two-Tone Silk Saree
The more- the merrier- applies to color palettes in the evergreen Indian saree! Shaded sarees break away from the monotony of single tones, adding charm to the elegant six-yard ensemble.
The current scenario is in the Indian fashion industry is witnessing an upward trend of gradient or ombre sarees in materials like satin georgette and silk chiffon. While ombre and gradient-dyed sarees are relatively a new trend, dual shade sarees in silk or the popular two-shade silk saree are a tradition in several regions of India.
How are double shade or multi-shade sarees made?
There are several ways to achieve the shaded effect in a saree. Digital printing is of the most widely used method for commercially available ombre sarees. The tie-and-dye traditional printing technique can also give uneven color tones.
The double shaded effect in silk sarees results from using different color yarns for the weft and warp weaves. Pink and purple two-tone sarees, beige and pink pastel shade silk sarees, and orange and brown shaded silk sarees are some of the most commonly spotted variants.
The silk obtained from such weaving techniques is also known as Shot Silk, and the two-tone effect is synonymous with the term ‘dhoop chaaon’ effect. Taffeta silk sarees often have this iridescence.
Many regional silk sarees like Dharamvaram silk sarees, Kanchipuram silk sarees, and Banarasi silk saree often have golden undertones using zari or metallic thread yarns with the base silk color while weaving.
