Description :

White handloom Baavanbuti cotton saree from the weavers of Bihar. The plain off white saree is designed with colorful stripes and blocks for the thin borders surrounding the edges of the saree. Baavanbuti weaving is renowned for its iconic fifty-two miniature butis (motifs) on the body of the fabric. The genesis of the word ‘Baavanbuti’ lies in the realm of mythology, folklore and tradition. The word for fifty-two, ‘Baavan’, holds special significance in the region as, not so far away, in a place called Amaawa; there lies a dilapidated old palatial building known as Tirpan Darwaazaa Baavan Kothi, with fifty-three doors and fifty-two rooms. However, there are numerous other folktales talking about the origin of Baavanbuti. Jiyo’s Baavanbuti cluster is reviving Baavanbuti weaving in unique and modern ways for Jiyo! Style and Jiyo! Home and is giving sustainable livelihood opportunities to local weavers.The Jiyo! Project is an indigenous brand and a design-led initiative by the Asian Heritage Foundation, supported by the JSDF and administered by the World Bank. The innovative program was established with an aim to enhance the livelihood opportunities of rural artisans for cultural industries through design. The project gives a platform for artisans and designers to co-create using hand skills to develop innovative products for local, contemporary urban and international markets thereby fostering sustainable livelihoods.
