I bought this sari at Kalpana, DT City Centre mall, Gurgaon. They have some amazing saris and at one point in time, I was a regular there. This sari is atleast 5 to 6 years old.. its South Indian cotton with North Indian embroidery over it. I don’t know what type of embroidery it is. Love the colours and the way the sari drapes. The neckpiece is from Desh Maheshwari, Noida. This picture has been taken at Bathinda.
I have a picture from 2012 when I wore this sari. A dear friend Kavita Kanaparthi, an ultra marathoner had come home with a great cyclist, Samim Rizvi. Samim is the first Indian to qualify for the Race Across America – RAAM, considered to be the toughest cycling race in the world. We obviously took pictures and interestingly I was wearing this sari.
The neckpiece I am wearing in the following picture is also from Desh Maheshwari, Noida. Its multi coloured stones and it fits many different saris.
