Many modern fashion designers and fashionistas are resorting to the age-old Maharashtrian Khun weaves. They are rediscovering this exquisite fabric, which was traditionally considered as clothing only for old women of North Karnataka and Maharashtra. Now, the fashion world is reviving this “uniform code”, and younger generations are happily embracing Khun in their clothing.
Traditionally, Khun works were available on blouses only; the fabric had a standardised width of 31 inches. However, it is not the same these days. Its fabric’s width is extended as per the requirements or wishes of those designers to give a quirky touch to outfits.
Also, it’s worth witnessing how Khun is beautifully woven on different materials – polyester, cotton, silk, and in mixed fabrics. What’s most attractive is – its bold colours and striking block prints.
We, at India Imprints, are also crazy about Khun and want all our patrons to look stunning in its designs, appreciating the efforts of these tireless weavers.
