In Haridhra, we bring you a curation of the kanjivaram's yellows and oranges, celebrating a magical palette in fine silk. The significance of yellow is deeply ingrained in the consciousness and culture of India.
From the rich golden hue of turmeric (manjal) - without which no ceremony is complete - to the deep yellow of the beloved mango (mambazham), and the vivid orange of the tropical kanakambaram flower, weavers take inspiration from ritual, the natural world and everyday life to craft exquisite kanjivarams.
The colours of the sun infuse the sumptuous silks with a splendid glow. Shop the Haridhra collective right here, and read the Varna Sutra article on our blog to explore the deep symbolism of the hues.
