17/100 – I had a mental block about cotton sarees – looked and felt like they would be difficult to carry. Four years ago, when I draped one for the first time after the wedding, the love was immediate and has lasted.
Today I wore this Rajasthani Kota Saree with a beautiful red and blue patterns all day for the 12th anniversary of my grandmother’s passing away. Lucky to have lived over two decades of my life with my grandmother, sharing her room and throwing roommate tantrums at times, I was in charge of dressing her, mostly in sarees and braiding her hair for the last decade of her life.
Also, this precious saree is a gift from my brother from his trip to Rajasthan. He has great taste in picking out sarees, which you will see more of as I progress in this pact.
