My MIL dutifully wraps her sarees in a soft mulmul cloth or a dupatta or in this case, an old saree to store them. Last year when she gave me a a few of her vintage gems, she may have wrapped them in the saree I’m wearing today.
A few days back, when I was choosing sarees to wear over Diwali, I found this lovely, dark blue handloom saree with a patola border and small geometric bootis in the body, being wrapped around my silks. I quickly got it ironed and decided to give it back it’s lost glory and pull it out of the dark shadows of the suitcase.
Was an easy wear although it looked better at the start of the day than at the end! 🙂
