The Image Canvas presents KASHA Saris: Hand embroidered by skilled Women of India, for the Women who value Indian art and culture.
Kanchan Purohit and Sharmila Bhagwat work with talented artists from interior India. Their tired eyes and deft fingers have worked for weeks to create these handcrafted ,limited edition saris. An outcome of our passion, creativity and age old skills of the lady artisans, we are committed to preserving dying art forms like ‘Kasuti’ and Neygi from Karnataka. Poor patronage along with the advent of the ‘duplicity’ of machine embroidery has restricted it’s practice to only a handful of women artisans in the interiors of Karnataka.
Kasuti’s history dates back to the ‘Chalukya’ dynasty of the 17th century. The embroidery involves stitches like Ganthi (double running stitch), Murgi ( zig zag stitch), Neyge ( running stitch) and Menthe (Cross stitch).
We shall be happy to design bespoke Sarees for your special occasion. Kanchan is a certified image consultant and understands the language of clothing. Her insights will facilitate a choice of saree suited to your persona , role and occasion. One to one consulting for wardrobe management is available too.
Sharmila with her understanding of textiles and weaves picks natural fibres and comfortable textures. The output is a harmonious combination of traditional weaves and classic designs.
KASHA Saris is a tribute to the ‘Artisans’ who weave this magic and to you for appreciating this art.
