Satin Silk is a fabric produced when pure Silk yarns are woven in the 'Satin weave'. The resulting fabric typically has a glossy surface and a dull back. It has a very lustrous appearance and tends to be softer, but more slippery as compared to Katan Silk. Satin is a warp upwards fabric. Because of the density of the threads, the colour is more concentrated and bright.
Kadhwa stands for 'kadha hua' or 'embroidered'. In Kadhwa weaving, each motif is woven separately as opposed to other Banarasi techniques. Often two weavers weave a kadhwa saree. One weaver is engaged in weaving the cloth or the body of the saree and the second helps in carving out or embroidering each motif using a wooden spool or Tilli as it’s called in Banaras. Using this technique, many different motifs of different sizes, colours and textures can be woven on the same sari, which is quite difficult to do otherwise. A kadhwa saree typically will take a minimum of 12-14 days to complete and go up to 8-9 months also depending on the intricacy of the design. The backside of a kadhwa saree is clean and has almost negligible or zero float or loose threads.
In the word "Shikargah" , "Shikar" means hunting and "Gah" means place.
The Shikargah we see today has also evolved with time and tradition. From depicting the typical Lion and Deer hunt to showing King on an elephant and the Jungle birds. We also see some bit of british influence in designs in the later part of the18th century with British Soldiers wearing the typical peak cap also shown as a part of the hunting scene. Shikargah can be woven in different weaving Techniques like a Kadhwa or a meenadar or in Kimkhab and Tanchoi.
