The nicest part of living a peripatetic life is picking up customs from all over. Kojagiri Poornima is observed in Maharashtra on the full moon night right after Dussera. You wear white, consume white desserts and welcome Prosperity into your home. My wardrobe is sadly deficient in white sarees, so for saree 36/100, I wore an off-white Brocade inherited from my mother-in-law. It was gifted to her by her mother-in-law when my husband was born, so there are many memories woven around it.
I’m told it is a Benarasi brocade, but I really don’t know- what’s in a name?
