Add glamor to your traditional look by draping a Tanchoi saree from Janardhana Silk House

Be it men’s sherwani or a women’s saree, Indian traditional attire has gained immense popularity across many cultures. Sarees are eye-soothing and add grace to a woman's overall look. Though a wide range of sarees is available in the market, the tanchoi silk saree is something that is synonymous with royalty and elegance. Light, soft, yet rich, these sarees are a work of art. The unique patterns, embossed weaves, and beautiful motifs add to the beauty of the saree.

Another beautiful saree that looks quite similar to Tanchoi is the Jamawar saree. In both types of saree, traditional satin weave techniques are used where the motifs and patterns are created with the help of extra primary weft providing it an inlaid or embossed look. Unlike brocades, the Tanchois are soft and flowy.

Colors and patterns

The most attractive part of Tanchoi and Jamawar silk sarees is that they are fabricated in vibrant colors and several yarns are used in the weaving technique. Tanchoi is also made using an extra set of colorful weft silk yarn covering the satin ground which brings out the distinctive patterns.

In both Tanchoi and Jamawar silk saree, you can come across figures of flying birds, paired cocks, and peacocks surrounded by flowers. In some of the sarees, you will notice beautiful floral motifs, geometrical patterns, and paisley designs. Nowadays, you can see designs integrated with Chinese and Indian motifs.
