The elegance of Maheshwari's
Maheshwari Dupattas brought to
you from Maheshwar, a small town on the banks of the river Narmada in the state of Madhya Pradesh
has been a home to one of India's rich heritage of art & culture but more importantly the finest handlooms. It has been a centre for handloom weaving since the 5th century.. It is noted as a centre for weaving colourful Maheshwari saris and Dupattas.
These cotton and silk saris are woven with distinctive designs inscribed on the walls of forts around this region involving stripes, checks and floral borders.
The designs on the textiles were mainly inspired from the sculpted depictions in temples and this has given a unique recognition to the handicrafts of Maheshwar.
The weavers used natural colors for the production of colored textiles
and dedicated hours to produce the beautiful Maheshwari Sarees and Dupattas.
