As we approach the end of the year, Kanakavalli curates After Dark, a special edition of the Vault Yarnplay collective of classic format heirloom kanjivarams embellished with fine silken yarn and occasional hints of fine zari. This selection of gorgeous silk saris woven in deep hues features a subtle interplay of colour and pattern. The richness of the palette beautifully highlights the sumptuous silken drape in kanjivarams that are perfect for festive evenings out or in.
Where kanjivarams might have traditionally featured zari, this collective reimagines designs in delicate threadwork, occasionally highlighted with gold and silver. Painstakingly handwoven by master weavers using time-honoured techniques, these saris are defined by a contemporary elegance, while celebrating the innate beauty of the kanjivaram. The After Dark kanjivarams are perfect to pair with statement blouses and your favourite jewellery for the end of the year, a time of reflection on the past and looking ahead into the future.
