Bhopal (Navdunia Reporter).
Sunday is the last day of the special handloom expo running at Gauhar Mahal. It will end at 4 pm in the presence of Anubha Srivastava, Managing Director of MP Handicrafts and Handloom Development Corporation. On this occasion, certificates will be given to the weavers participating in the special handloom expo. Earlier on Saturday evening, Nimadi folk songs and Rajasthani dance Ghoomar were presented by the artists from there. Weavers from all over the country have brought exquisite specimens of their art in the exhibition organized by Mrignayani Emporium in association with the Development Commissioner, Ministry of Handloom Textiles, Government of India. Here the handmade textiles of Ayakosa and Matka silk from Janjagir Chapa (Chhattisgarh) and Madhubani print sarees and suits from Bhagalpur are special.
Weaver Puran Devangan, who came to the exhibition, told that the Kosa silk and Matka silk sarees of Chandrapur of Janjagir Chapa are famous all over the world. He told that Kosa silk saree is made by putting the thread from the cocoon on the loom. The cocoon shell (the unusable part) is then rubbed into the pot by turning it upside down, making a thin and drawn thread (lachhi). Since the worm of the cocoon has come out of the shell, it is also called non-violence silk. This thread is dyed and put in the loom, from which the saree is ready. This is the reason why it is called matka silk saree. Kosa silk saree is costlier than Matka silk. In making a saree of both types to It takes the time of day. Two craftsmen make it together. Most women do this. Natural dyes are used in these.
Minister Gopal Bhargava bought four places: Javed Ansari, who came from Bhagalpur, has also brought suits of linen and cotton silk sarees, which have Madhubani print. Javed told that Minister Gopal Bhargava, who came on the inauguration of the expo, had bought four bags of cotton silk from his stall. Kurta-pajama and jacket are made from this fabric. The price 250 is Rs.
