We had a project’s final meeting scheduled over 2 days and I decided to wear my
embroidered silk sarees for these, since we usually spend almost the whole day
closeted in an AC room at such meetings.
The olive green is an ikat and originally had a plain body. The blue one is a
bangalore silk which was also plain with just the gold border. I wore them as such
for many years. Then my mother suggested and got them enhanced with
machine-embroidered patterns, which gave them a new look.
My colleague is wearing a muga silk from Assam.
