The Art of Gold is a series of curated events initiated by Swati & Sunaina Gold to bring attention to various artistic forms of gold. This furthers the interest of its founders to support the research and histories of the intangible heritage of Indian textiles.
Swati & Sunaina Gold was started to innovate with rare techniques of hand weaving in Banaras
This includes Rangkaat, Gyaser, Tissue, Pachrangi and Dampach, among others. For this, a use of pure zari was also seen as essential, leading to a process of its certification which we have pioneered. With every collection of our single edition sarees, we remain focussed on pure materials, excellence in hand craftsmanship and a floral repertory of designs which is drawn from a wide range of inspirations and styles. With a deep interest in the histories of textiles, we are also committed to enabling research and curating events to highlight the intangible heritage of Indian weaving traditions through the Art of Gold initiative.
Each Swati & Sunaina Gold single edition saree is handwoven using the techniques of Kadhua, Jamdani, Rangkaat, Gyaser, Pachrangi or Dampach, quintessentially associated with Banaras handlooms. But the making of a brocaded handwoven saree begins much earlier than the weaving itself, and involves a range of processes, from creating an original artwork, its translation into a graph and punched cards for the jacquard, fitting of the jacquard on the loom, dyeing of the yarn, its preparation for the warp and weft, and eventual mounting on the loom. These stages are illustrated in this film, giving a brief overview of the making of a Swati & Sunaina Gold single edition saree.
