Pride of Orissa Utkallakshmi Double Ikat

Do you have wonder what weave is the most aspirational and cherished one for the handloom weavers? What is the one weave that weavers gift to their wives and daughters? In Orissa, the answer is the mesmerizing utkallakshmi saree. An utkallakshmi saree is always a part of the trousseau when a daughter in a weaver's family gets married. It is a loving blessing in the form of a saree that a father weaves for his daughter. The very name of the saree is synonymous with Odisha as it is considered the ‘lakshmi’ of Utkala, the ancient name of Orissa! We are fortunate to have one of these beautiful sarees with us.

Orissa ikat sarees feature finely articulated ikat work, created by first dying the threads on a frame and then respooling and weaving the sari. If single ikat is hard work, double ikat is one of the most time and labor intensive weaves out there. It takes months of intent to weave one.

The Utkallakshmi is a magical saree that is brimming with all the positive intent that went into making it. It comes finished with edging and a fall so you can wear it right away.
