9 - Ilkal Cotton Silk w. Kasuti Stole
There are so many elements that come together to make what we present here and oh, what a journey each piece enjoys! It bears the mark of women and men who through each stage of creating this product have given their best to make something of such beauty - from conceptualising and designing it, to dyeing of the yarn, to weaving the stole on the handloom, to the beautiful tassels made by the women from another village, to the Kasuti done by another group of talented women who have unfortunately been distressed by difficult circumstances but have pushed themselves to have a better life and are now encouraged and backed by a NGO KaleNele works with closely to support their cause. Each stole has a story to tell.
An Ilkal stole woven on the handloom with a pure cotton body, silk pallu on either side with the quintessential tope teni design and to add to the exquisiteness of this piece, hand Kasuti carefully done on each of these unique pieces. Explore the entire collection, you will even see some with a delightful change in the weave and embroidery from the half way mark to make it amazingly contempo-ethnic.
