India’s Inspiration –Shatika and Shatika’s Inspiration – Love India, Love Indianness
An eternal love saga– Shatika is the outcome of the incessant love of sari for its country and of the country for its most ancient attire. While saree has inspired our culture and tradition from the time of Indus Valley civilization, we at Shatika are inspired to be in this business of handwoven traditional sarees for our love for India and Indianness.
Inspired by the liveliness of our country, each piece in Shatika’s collection is exclusively handcrafted and personality-filled; Be it the Nature inspired colors or the incorporation of ecological elements into the designs, the depiction of intricacies of human relations or scenes from ancient epics, Shatika which means sari in Sanskrit pays homage to the cultural heritage of India by presenting the six yard legacy which is the heart of our tradition. The most ancient of all, it is indeed the heart, the pumping station of our culture. The very identity of our culture, it has been modeled and remodeled over generations and presented in new avatars but never ceased to exist, such is the bond of India and Shatika.
In today’s world where everything is replicated and reproduced with a twist, saree too has been experimented with, more so now than never before but the fact remains that no amount of westernization can overpower the beauty and sensuality of the saree as presented in its traditional incarnation and that’s why we believe in bringing it in its purest and most unadulterated form directly from the looms to its lovers.
Shatika: Unveil the Beauty of Indian Heritage through Indian Handloom Sarees
Since the dawn of civilization, handlooms have been associated with excellence in India’s artistry in textiles and fabrics, and sari which is considered to be the most ancient piece of clothing has been inspiring generations of artists and craftsmen to weave their dreams and visions into creating exquisite handloom sarees. However with passage of time, just like the clacking sounds of the looms, the dreams and visions of these weaves too are fading away.In an attempt to bring handloom sarees back in vogue, Shatika has begun a revolution; a six yard sari revolution is a humble attempt at bringing back the lost love for handloom sarees. Dedicated to creating a unique interpretation of the age old craft, we travel to all colourful corners of the country visiting weavers,guiding them on the latest trends so they weave out the age old tradition with a modern touch and bring them online so you can savor the delights of hand picking them from the comfort of your homes.
