Handwoven Bright Red Floral Tanchoi Cotton-Silk Stole

About Me: Tanchoi textiles are fabricated in vibrant colors and the weaving technique employs several silk yarns. Like Brocades, Tanchois are also constructed using an extra set of colorful weft silk yarn covering the satin ground thus creating unusually distinctive patterns. Tanchoi weaving is one of the technical and complex weaving techniques as it involves one or two warp and two to five weft colors often in the same shed.

A densely patterned, heavy fabric is thus created without any floats on the reverse. Sometimes, the ‘unused’ threads are woven into the ‘foundation’ at the back. As per the tradition of creating these textiles, the weavers create the face of the fabric with a satin weave ground (warp threads) with small patterns made by the weft threads repeated over the entire surface. Based on this fact, traditionally Tanchoi textiles are Amru brocades that originated in China, but in the 1940s and 1950s, Banaras took over the market and began to incorporate zari.

The Story: Since the Rig Vedic times, we hear about several kinds of textiles among which figures out the cloth of gold as a distinguished type, the god in their resplendent grandeur wear it, as they drive in their stately chariots. The Hiranya cloth has been usually interpreted as the earliest equivalent for the present day zari work or the kimkhab or brocades.

The weavers of the Benaras generally use old pit loom for weaving sarees, brocades and other products. The weavers generally use wooden loom of its own pattern having elaborate and crowded arrangements of cotton stings from top to bottom. In the absence of the rapid motion exactness in working and uniform punctuality in the sequence of the different operations, the weavers concentrate on simple human figures patiently and quietly sitting at it and swiftly passing or retorting the shuttle through the layers of the warps and then immediately purfling along the weft with gold thread or dyed silk by tucking its tubeless through the warp.

It is the common view of weaving process of the most famous brocades of the world but within it lies the mystery of an intricate and elaborated process of weaving from selection and preparation of the yarn to the reproduction of the rich designs. The process starts with procurement of silk yarn and golden zari from the nearby markets and ends with pressing and folding of the final products. The Karigars follow a stringent process for the weaving a Benaras Saree or brocade textiles, which takes minimum 6 to 7 days depending upon the designs.
