A Maheshwari, a saree I had been wanting to buy, having always been a fangirl of Ahilya Bai Holkar since I was a little kid. I remember a visit to Somnath in Gujarat, where the priests told us about how she created a secret tunnel to hide the idol and the temple jewels when Muslim invaders attacked. She was also a patron of Maheshwari sarees. The readymade blouse was bought on a visit to Ahmedabad so a rather Gujarat connection.
