After a pause am back with #ShadesofBlue 😉

‘Dhakai’ the word originates from the Dhaka city, capital of Bangladesh, where this type of saree is usually made.
Originally the hand technique of weaving was called Jamdani (Bengali: জামদানি), while the weave was called Dhakai. It is one of the finest muslin textiles of Bengal, produced in Dhaka, Bangladesh for centuries.
The sensitive weavers and artisans of this art form took inspirations for their weave designs from the life around them, from simple things such as a broken comb to things in the nature such as plants, the earth, the stars or the solar system.

I have 5 different pastel shaded Dhakais, but this blue piece has a special soft corner in my wardrobe…
Firstly it is #blue, secondly I wore this for the first time for my beloved…
The pairing blouse has a special story too; the tailor came and delivered the blouse at my place just 15 minutes before my saree drape…
I was furious since after designing it, the tailor misplaced and finally found it after a long gap thus the delivery got delayed…
The special blue/pearl jewellery was also a part for this entire look.

40/100 of #100sareepact is such a wonderful memory to be treasured for my saree story series; I name it as SKY DHAKAI…. Whenever I look at this saree, I feel like flying high in the Sky of my sweet and pure memories….. 🙂 🙂
