RmKV Silks unveils innovations in Kanchipuram Silk Sarees

RmKV a brand associated with handwovenKanchipuram Silk Sarees has come up with new innovations for this festive season by going back in time to traditional routes.All fabrics were naturally dyed till synthetic dyes were introduced in 1856.

Convenient and cost-effective, synthetic dyes quickly replaced natural ingredients as colouring agents; 
the environmental impact of their toxic effluents has now become all too apparent.Mr.Shankar Kumarswamy, Director, RmKV Silks said, “ after a decade of research at the RmKV Silks R & D center in Tamil Nadu, wehave rediscovered the recipes for dozens of natural dyes and also innovated a few special colours of our own.

The ancient recipes used to create natural dyes and mordants have been either lost or maintained by a diminishing number of dyers in small craft clusters.Most naturally-dyed sarees, such as block-printed cotton sarees, are coloured only after they’re woven.  Now, for the first time, customers can add a 100% naturally-dyed handwoven Kanchipuram silk saree to their wardrobes, just in time for the festive season.
