The story of Jullaaha!
True to its name 'Jullaaha' – which means weaver in Urdu, the brand concentrates on connecting Indian artisans and weavers to a global audience through its designs. The brand identifies the skill and creativity of our faceless artisans and guide them in creating relevant designs for the modern day women combining the contemporary and ethnic.
Jullaaha originated from the love and devotion of its Founder Jayadevi Cholayil towards Indian textiles. Through this venture of hers, she educates destitute women about the nuances of our textile crafts and also involves them in the preparation of natural and organic handmade personal care products. This provides them the means for a stable income and gives them a sense of belonging and financial independence. By collaborating with the Banyan and Cholayil Groups, Jaya has created a truly sustainable business that has been recognized and praised widely. Awards such as the “Woman entrepreneur of the year” from FICCI are a testament to her accomplishment as a sustainable organization leader.
What’s special about Jullaaha?
Jullaaha's designs highlight the utility and malleability of craft to create contemporary clothing. Their designs tell the tales of our lost textile art and crafts, our traditions and the process associated with our age old techniques like batik, hand block patterns, hand painted designs and Kalamkari work. Each curve and each pattern painted on the fabric reminds us of the weaver and the patience of the meticulous craftspersons who are happily making something unique for you with great precision and creativity.
Banarasi or Benarasi Weaving is one of the oldest and most versatile weaving clusters in the Indian Subcontinent. Zari & Brocade textiles are the specialties of Banaras. The saris of Banaras are named after the motifs – shikargarh, ada bel (foliage motifs), kalga (floral) and more.
Traditionally Banarasi saris are also woven in different materials – Pure Silk (Katan), Organza (Kora) and Fine Cotton. Contemporary Designers have innovated on the material that is used to weave Banarasi Saris. We now have Georgette Banarasis, Crepe Banarasi, Linen Banarasis & More
