Summer and hand painted saree


      I have always been intrigued by saree, actually even before I have started wearing it. The six-yard literally spells magic upon me. I collected saree even before starting to wear it.
Summer in India is blazing and need to wear something light and feathery feel against the skin to be breathable. Indian cotton is not only known for its durability, comfort, and purity but also for the works on it, especially hand-painted ones. You know it's varied and versatile, every region in Indian has its own special paint - ajrakh, bandhani,kalamkari, block print, Madhubani to name a few. But, I don't know why I have never owned any cotton saree.



      Well, I am not a purist when it comes to wearing saree. I team my saree with crop tops, shirts, and whatnot. This one is clubbed with a white crop top, silver jewelry, a pink mojri (flat Indian ethnic shoes). I am sure you might have guessed this is the latest cotton saree addition to my wardrobe. How cool is this bicycle print on it? Do let me know your thoughts.
