The collaboration has tested 7671 zari products since 2019 and will take this number to 10,000 by FY24. Taneira is committed to upholding authenticity and transparency in its product offerings, particularly in the realm of pure zari Kanjeevaram sarees. Each saree is meticulously crafted and paired with a certification of authenticity, ensuring customers receive genuine and high-quality products. By working closely with weaver communities and sourcing pure and authentic weaves from over 100 clusters across India, Taneira sets a benchmark for authenticity in the ethnic wear market.

The Fischer’s Zari Testing machine sourced from Germany, accurately helps in measuring the metal content in zari threads, providing precise results. Further, a burn test is conducted to assess the composition of the core thread, offering additional insights into the zaris authenticity and purity. By adhering to rigorous testing standards, Taneira guarantees the delivery of exceptional products. The authenticity certification contributes to fair pricing, as customers are assured that they are paying for genuine, high-quality zari. Moreover, standardized testing practices uphold the integrity of the weaving industry, ensuring that weavers are fairly compensated for their craftsmanship

Speaking about the partnership, Mr. Ambuj Narayan, CEO, Taneira said, “At Taneira, we are dedicated to educating our customers about the purity and certification of zari, empowering them to make informed decisions when purchasing our sarees and ethnic wear. We are setting new standards of excellence and transparency as this will enable us to accurately determine the metal content in zari threads, providing our customers with the assurance of genuine and high-quality products. The partnership with CSTRI represents a significant milestone in our three pronged approach towards innovation, honoring the hard work and toil of the weaver community, all while delivering unmatched levels of customer centricity, reinforcing our commitment to delivering exceptional quality and value to our discerning customers.

In the foreseeable future, zari authenticity certification will continue to reassure customers by guaranteeing authenticity, and providing customers with confidence in their purchases.
