Here are Roliana’s top 3 weaves to wear this Summer Season, woven in the most comfortable and drape friendly fabrics :



1. Gyasar

Essentially a khinkhwab style of brocade traditionally woven with large monastic and mythical motifs and European florals, we at Roliana, weave this beautiful heirloom piece by twisting gold zari threads as a single twine on a georgette, tussar georgette, net, or katan silk fabrics to maintain the richness and royalty of the weave and ensuring the fabric flows with you as you carry it, all year round



2. Kadhwa

One of the most sophisticated and intricate handloom weave of Benaras, Kadhwa is created with extra wefts on top of the base wrap fabric using resham or zari wound around to leave no loose threads on the back of the fabric. It resembles an embroidery- like technique, intricately woven on a loom, where each piece takes about 50-60 days to complete the finishing.



3. Meenakari

A weave that you will find in a lot of our sarees is Meenakari work, which is artistic traditional work using one or more colours of Resham threads. This weave dates back to hundreds of years of weaving customs and numerous hours of fine craftsmanship, creating an heirloom textile to pass down through generations, hand-woven with love, in Benaras. Meenakari is a very flexible way of weaving and looks just as stunning on any and every fabric.
