KATAN WEAVES IS DESIGNER RUCHIKA MODI’S SIGNATURE COLLECTION OF HAND WOVEN SAREES CUSTOM MADE ON THE LOOMS BY MASTER WEAVERS OF BENARES.
Katan means silk in Hindi. And, Katan Weaves presents some of the prettiest silk saris all the way from Benares.
Ruchika Modi hails from one of the oldest and most prestigious families of Benares and her fascination for sarees began very early.
Traditional weaving methods with a contemporary twist is Ruchika's forte.
She spends the better part of the year with the weavers, working with them and guiding them to make variations in weaves, textures and treatments to create innovative weaves and unique fabric blends.
Anyone who views Ruchika’s creations emerges with the distinct impression of perceiving a bit of the familiar interwoven with the unfamiliar - and the discernment is justified.
