Namaste, This painting was delivered a little while ago. The entire package was soaking wet inside and out. But because of the extra special care you took to protect it, the painting itself is not damaged. It is beautiful, and I am very happy to have it. But all is well now, and I am relieved. Thank you!
Janice, USA
I am writing to convey my gratitude in the service that you have provided me. We received the painting of the 10 gurus by Anup Gomay on the 2nd January 2019 and the painting was packaged very well. I am happy to say that the recipient of the gift was very very happy! The painting is truly stunning and spectacular in real life! Thank you once again for all your help that you provided.
Mrs. Prabha, United Kingdom

Dr. Jamuna, New Zealand
I just received my powder pink wool shawl. It is beautiful. I bought it to wear over my dress at my son's wedding this coming Spring & it will be perfect if it's chilly in the garden. The package came very promptly & I couldn't be more pleased.
Pamela, Canada
I very much appreciate the tailoring service you offer. Many friends are delighted to see my last purchase. Hopefully more customers will contact you soon.

Bomkai Saris
Bomkai Saris are considered to be the traditional charm of eastern India, specifically Orissa. Bomkai is one of the identified geographical indications of India. These saris are available in both cotton and silk fabrics. The most delightful part is its thread work in the designs of the border and the pallu.

Gaining popularity amongst the fashion designers these saris are being wore by many celebrities. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, the Bollywood diva, wore a special type of Bomkai known as "Radhakunja" on her wedding. Three saris which were designed by Chaturbhuj Meher at Sonepur, Odisha, were perfect to match her grace and aristocracy. These eye-catching saris are now considered a must in a women’s wardrobe.

Also, known as Sonepuri sari, the charming Bomkai saris are exclusively woven in handlooms in the western parts of Odisha. These saris are largely worn by classical dancers across the world. The sari is traditionally worn as an auspicious attire during rituals, holy festivals or on special occasions and celebrations. ‘Bandha’ is the local name of Bomkai saris. The concept of these saris is a part of the Odiya culture as old as the era of 600 B.C. Traditional Bomkai saris are crafted by the most skillful artists of Odisha who are believed to be the creators of the signature style of these saris.

Innumerable varieties of Bomkai Sari have been introduced till date. Some of the most popular ones include Sonepuri, Pasapali, Barpali and Bapta saris. The patterns and themes designed on the Bomkai saris are mostly influenced by nature, cultural and tribal art. The look of the sari is related to simplicity and has a tribal tint in it. Several geometrical patterns are made on the sari like pestle, hour-glass shaped drum, small flowers, bitter gourd, peacock, fish and various other traditional designs. Design of fish which is believed to be a sign of success and affluence is often seen on the sari.

The supplementary warp weaving of the borders in these saris is called ‘Mikta Panji’, which is a latticework with diamond form that gives the sari its distinction and unique peculiarity. The design is basically the weavers thought, perception and choice which is very delicately woven in fabric to portray tradition and culture of India.

To design a Bomkai sari, the warp and weft are dyed as per requirement. The warp and weft is set by using wooden frames or ‘jalas’ that are fixed by the weavers in specific pattern. The sari is woven in the (pallu) with contrasting colors and designs. The embellishment on the sari is done by using the extra weft technique commonly referred to as ‘jaala system’ that gives the embroidery the look of a mesh or ‘jaala’. The borders are woven using phool bandhaks.

To add in vogue with double contrast, the border and the pallu are dyed distinctly and worked on the basis of the color combinations. Most of the saris are created in two or more shades. Introduction of zari threads in weaving has become the new trend; otherwise in earlier days the entire design was woven out of thread work using cotton or silk yarn as the fabric base. This makes the Bomkai Saris stand apart from others.
