There is something so mesmerising and timeless about polka-dotted saris. They add youthfulness and cheer! The zari dots shimmer in silver and gold, as Tara Jain and Reema Sundaram, with a few years between them, pull it off elegantly. The sari needs nothing else, nothing more than a thin gold border—such is the dotted magic!

The weaves of India

 
Remember draping your mom’s sari as a child while she wasn’t looking? And thinking of her taste as old-fashioned while you grew up! Well, things have changed—grandma’s saris are ‘in’! Now, mothers and daughters make two blouses with the same sari, one for each of them, each sporting a different ‘look’ with the same sari! Speaking about the welcome revival of interest in Indian weaves, handloom expert Sabita Radhakrishna shares 12 of her favourite sari choices with Pratibha Jain, who heads Padma Paaduka, a handwoven sari store in Chennai, as well as online portal www.padmapaaduka.com. “It’s a tough choice to make considering India has so many weaves and such a vibrant range of colours,” says Radhakrishna. “What delights me most is that the wearing of a handwoven sari is a tribute to the weaver.”
