Urvi is an exquisite collection of rich finery and vivid color, featuring the Paithani weave. It is an integral part of Maharashtrian culture, be it auspicious occasions, weddings or festivals.
Hailing from the royal dynasties of the Satvahana Dynasty (2nd Century BC to 2nd Century AD) and the medieval town of Paithan, Aurangabad, Paithani is considered to be one of the richest sarees of Maharashtra. The creation of this weave requires anywhere from two months to one year, adept labour and in-depth knowledge of the fabric. Around 500 grams of silk threads and 250 grams of zari threads are utilised for a regular six-yard piece. The main raw materials used for weaving the Paithani saree are silk, pure gold and silver zari and dyes in traditional colors. A typical saree consists of the body, which is woven in silk with small buttis; the border (kath), which is along both edges of the body of the saree and is designed symmetrically with intricate motifs; and the pallu (padar), which is generally about 24 to 36 inches of intricately woven zari-work at one end.
Our collection sees a variety of luxurious Paithani sarees, dupattas & blouse pieces, in many price ranges. This weave is a joyful blend of dazzling and vibrant hues, nature-inspired motifs, and fine craftsmanship, also used to create beautiful lehengas and menswear for themed events.
