Referred to as Douppioni or Dupioni, Dupion silk sarees are medium weight silk sarees that are weaved in the eastern parts of the country and are widely popular throughout the country. Dupion which means ‘ a cocoon formed jointly by two silkworms’ is a plain weaved crisp type of silk fabric that is produced by using fine thread in the warp and uneven thread reeled from two or more entangled cocoons in the weft creating tightly-woven yardage giving the dupion saree a textured look with unparallel lustre. Often woven with different colored threads that are scattered through the warp and weft, handloom dupion sarees exhibit an iridescent effect which combined with its stubby texture gives the saree a very rustic and natural look. These pure dupion sarees exhibit plain and striped patterns or floral and other intrinsic patterns which clubbed with their colourful weave bring out the beauty of the saree like none other. Opulent and ritzy, these dupion silk sarees make a good bridal wear and an apt wear for other formal occasions.
