Janaka Fables for Lehengas

In a busy village in ancient India, there lived a curious and skilled weaver named Ananda. Known for her passion for the craft, Ananda was always experimenting with different fabrics and techniques.

One day Ananda noticed the vast amount of scrap material she and all the other craftsmen were generating while stitching clothes. On enquiring with the local waste disposal authorities she realised that all this scrap would just be dumped at the landfill. Concerned about her impact on nature, she decided to create a stunning lehenga out of these scraps.

News about Ananda’s experiment spread like wildfire. Her fellow craftsmen mocked her. They believed that true beauty could only be found in new fabrics. Scraps were considered impure by them.

Unfettered by the villagers, Andana saw value and potential in the old fabrics. She created a stunning patchwork pattern and got to work.

When she finished, Ananda presented her stunning creation to the local princess and explained the story behind it. Impressed, the princess wore the upcycled lehenga at the local village celebration. This shocked everyone and spread the message of upcycling and using sustainable practices.

Moral of the story: This tale teaches us that beauty can be found in the most unexpected places. True artistry lies in the ability to see potential where others can only see waste.

How We Made Our Lehenga

Priyanka Raajiv Lehengas are a fusion of traditional technique and modern design. The journey to a stunning Lehenga begins with sustainable fabric sourcing. Each type of fabric has its own unique history and story to tell. Once the materials are gathered, our team of designers look for inspiration in traditional motifs and patterns. Designs are sketched out, keeping in mind the unique nature of each fabric and its heritage. Patterns are then made for the lehenga, keeping in mind the final proportions of the lehenga’s fall. Skilled craftsmen and women then cut and stitch each piece of fabric together. Embellishments and detailing are all done by hand transforming the Banarasi, Chanderi and Upcycled lehenga into a work of art. A thorough quality check is the final step in the process. It is done for each lehenga to ensure that only the best quality product reaches you.

Occasion Guide To Our Lehenga

Women across India adore the feminine grace of a lehenga. But the occasion, venue and material of the lehenga create subtle differences in when a certain type of lehenga can be worn:

1. Bridal lehenga

Lehenga is the top choice for any Indian bride. Nothing compares to the elegance and glamour of a Lehenga on the big day. Rich velvet and silk fabrics with intricate detailing create a regal look that every bride dreams of.

2. Festive lehenga

For social celebrations like Diwali parties or a friends wedding choose a lehenga in a colour and pattern that shows off your personal style and personality. You can select from a variety of vibrant colours, motifs and festive embellishments like mirror work, sequences or gota patti.

3. Casual lehenga

A lehenga made of lighter materials like Chanderi silk, cotton or chiffon is ideal for any casual event where you want a playful and feminine look. Choose from playful prints, tassels and embroidery to create a look that makes you look fashionable yet comfortable.

How To Care For Lehenga

To ensure your lehenga looks stunning forever, here are some simple things you can do to take care of it.

1. Storage

Always store your lehenga in a plastic cover, this keeps it safe from dust and moisture. Keep it in a cool, dry place and away from direct sunlight to prevent fading or dicoloration. Never hang a heavy lehenga, this can cause stretching and damage to the fabric.

2. Dry cleaning

Dry clean your lehenga whenever necessary. Avoid washing it with water and detergents as certain fabrics can weaken on exposure to water.

3. Ironing

Only use low heat or steam to smooth out creases in your lehenga. Direct exposure to high heat or sunlight can damage the fabric, causing it to look worn out and old.
