  • The saris in Gold series are inspired by floral motifs found in Mughal arts — motis found in Piettre Durra (stone inlay in marble), Bidri (silver inlay in metal), hand carving on precious stones, Meenakari, and other printed and woven textiles of the Mughal era.
  • Swati and Sunaina worked for a few years to make the gyasar suitable to be draped as a sari. They had to reduce the weight and modify the construction of the textile to make it light, while retaining the original character of the Oriental influence.
  • A special zari was created in silver of 98.5% purity and electroplated with 24 carat gold to achieve the bright tone.
