As you drive across the rural routes of Maharashtra and northern range of Karnataka, you will find a host of rural damsels attending their daily chores wearing a special blouse – khunn designed blouses! Well, if you wander in the fields further, you will find little children wearing dresses made of khunn. Care for a khunn tour?
Predominantly a handloom product, this material originates within the range of Kolhapur to Karnataka and comes blended with cotton, silk and polyester. With multiple prints and intricate motifs (Karamantikki, Kalawar Balli, Navalpari, Suryanarayana Sudarshna), this attire’s secret goes back to a century and is the only fabric specifically made for creating dresses for women.
Complementing the Ilkal sarees specifically woven in this belt, this fabric comes with triple warps and a singular weft. Taking this regional beauty and celebrating its existence at a national level, India Imprints bows its head to the workmanship of the weavers.
