On Sunday last, we had our family get together. This is my cousins, aunts and uncles from my paternal side. I wore my Patteda Anchu saree that day. While on the call, my cousin Pavithra immediately recognised it and told me that coincidentally she had been gifted a Patteda Anchu saree in a similar colour combination by her friend.
What were the chances of this kind of a coincidence ? This was really cool. The Patteda Anchu is a revival saree, and I bought it from Punarjeevana, Dr. Hemalatha Jain’s project. Do read more about it here in my previous blog – Two firsts and a renewed “Handloom” love.
Please continue supporting our handloom weavers. The art (handloom weaving) and the artists (the weavers) both need our support. These are not expensive sarees, but they help a weaver to keep plying his art and earn a living. Buy from reputed trustworthy resellers like Punarjeevana, Cooptex, etc. They ensure that the weaver gets paid fairly.
