An Udupi Sari

Yesterday was National Handloom Day while I wore the Puneri fisherwomen Sari, I didn’t click any pictures. I had written about this sari earlier – A cotton, tussar and a Kanchi “Pattu”. I wanted to share about the Udupi sari that I bought from Maanini Vastralaya. They have a […]

The Privileged Perspective

I read a FB post by the well known handloom aficionado Laila Tyabji and it did piss me off. I have always looked forward to her sari posts because she has an enviable collection and most times I find her views on other topics very balanced and wonderfully […]

My first handloom Negamam

I didn’t know what a Negamam sari was till I became a part of the W3 group. I had bought three Negamam saris at Kumaran Stores many years back when I thought that all cottons were handloom :):). When I figured out the difference between handloom and power […]

My first “Ilkal”

The following post about the Ilkal saris by Mr. Venkatesh Narasimhan on the W3 group on April 12th, got me interested in Ilkal saris. Then Devika reached out as she supports a cluster of Ilkal weavers to preserve the technique and I finally managed to buy an Ilkal […]
