Examples of what are considered as not a defect

Dear patrons, I know you buy lovely sarees from our store and a small blotch or a little patch, here and there might break your heart.

Trust me those who buy the hand-crafted sarees will find a little blotch at times. However, I don't want to break your heart and at the most our trust as your patronage and relationship is what I count upon. So if you find a blotch or puddle of colors in the tie-dye sarees, don't take it as Defect - remember the canvas of an artist cannot be perfect, it always has a different vision for every eye which views it.

  • → There could be very small knots / bumps in weaving that sometimes occur when threads are broken and they need to be tied again in the handloom.
  • Some uneven threads that connects the body of a saree to its pallu.
  • → Some loose threads in Bandni sarees .
  • → We take utmost care when taking pictures of our products. But sometimes shades displayed across the different kind of fabrics and accessories may slightly vary from the actual color. This most likely could happen due to different settings in your monitor or viewing device like Laptop, Mobile OR Tablet. Also photos seen in different brands of same device like in an IPhone vs Samsung Galaxy might look different. We request you to consider these minor color variations.
  • → Minute gaps in and around motifs.
  • → Small black marks that are markers for handloom weavers to mark the progress of the weaving.

Black Marks

The small black mark that is visible in this saree is really not a black mark. It is similar to the mile markers that you see on the highways. Since sarees are woven in handlooms, in order to understand whether the full length of the saree is woven, the weavers put a marker like this at an interval of 1 meter. Sometimes these marks are hardly noticeable but sometimes they are a little more prominent as shown in the picture. These marks are generally near the edges of the saree which in no way is going to hamper the beauty of the piece. 

Pin Marks

Handloom sarees are woven by pinning the saris to the loom. They often have pin marks or holes on top or bottom of saree or near borders, known as selvedge. Also, during polishing of the sarees, they are pinned in wooden posts. This is not considered a defect but it is your way to know that the saree is an authentic handloom one.


These sarees are woven in handloom, thread by thread. Thousands of threads are woven by our artisans with deft hand so that you get the very best. This is an example of just one thread not in proper place. This is not considered a defect but rather shows this is woven by hand and not my machines.


A handloom, by its very nature of being handwoven, is bound to have a rugged uneven surface giving it an ethnic appeal.  Knots, thread pulls are a commonality in handwoven sarees. Even if woven with the same yarns, a power-loom saree will be even in texture and flawless, lacking the allure of handlooms. This is an example of a knot in the saree to tie two silk threads after it might have snapped. This is not considered a defect.

Naal Phore

If you see very closely in this picture, you see what we call "NaalPhore" in the handloom weaving term. When you aren weaving in a handloom, sometimes the silk thread may get torn from the reel. In that case, a "knot" to tie the silk thread back to the loom has to be done to continue the weaving. What you see in this picture is simply that knot and not a defect. 

Tie Dye

Hand tie-dye sarees. It is nothing but the spread of the two or more colors which is used to hand dye or prepare the overall Bandhani look.
