Know your textile # 2 - Brocade - featuring Gajra Brocade potli

#KnowYourTextile #KnowYourPureGheeDesign #2 #Brocade
Definitely everyone’s top pick when it comes to festive wear. While weaving regular cloth involves a weft holding the warp threads together, Brocade has a supplementary weft along with the standard one to give that ornate look. That extra weft makes it look like the cloth is embroidered when it actually isn’t. Brocade is made on a draw loom with perforated cards that guide the design. And with the perfect hand-leg coordination on the loom you get an exquisite, elegant brocade. 

Our best-selling potlis, ideal for the festive season are made with brocade sourced from Benaras.
