. My entry for #xmaskerang
. The seasons festivity and cheer is all around.
It's a blood red Dharwad saree with leaf green border and Kasuti embroidery. This was bought by husband from a weaver some 15 years back during one of his field trips. And he bought two of the same kind. 😀 The other one was fortunately in navy and cream combination which I gave to a dear friend. The season is just perfect for draping a thick saree during the day. .
I received a lot of admiration for the perfectly matched silver with red and green meenakari which I bought from one of the handicraft exhibition where small sellers were exhibiting. I have great admiration for these craftsman, their skill and the effort it takes them to make each piece. Made it a point never to bargain for price with them. That's the least I could contribute to preserve the art.
