Now, this is a Retro Rewind for me.
I discovered these. Some colorful threads adding a playful touch to the frozen cloth. There was this vintage maroon Saree with vibrant detailed embroidery. Grandma did it when she was my age. It is strange to know she did this artistic work at the age of 22 unlike me who is more busy with her laptop and mobile phone.
And the great thing about being a vintage lover’s granddaughter? I can go straight to granny..not to learn how to do embroidery but if she can gift this saree to me. Well I did the same. And guess what was her reaction? She said,”From where did you find it? I wanted to turn this saree into cushion covers but lost it somewhere. Thank god. Atleast now I can.”
Oooopss!! Now I am surely taking this saree with me. For the years, this trunk has saved it from being cut to pieces, and now I will protect it from granny’s scissors.
