Maybe comfort is overrated, she thought. Because, she felt just as good when she was gawky. Learning about herself, letting her imagination run wild and believing in friendships were part of growing up for her and she could have never experienced this had she wanted comfort over everything else. She was born for adventures and boy did she have some! She was awkwardly dainty, innocently aware. She was Alice!
This made-in-heaven mul cotton saree with screen printed work in mustard, mint, orange and black shades is gorgeous!

The designs on this fabric come alive on our made-in-heaven mul sarees through an intricate process known as screen-printing. This process involves the usage of a mesh-screen made of synthetic polymers that is strung onto a metal or wooden frame at high tension. A stencil with the negative image of what is to be printed is placed beneath the screen and emulsion is applied to create a positive image that lets the dye seep through the screen. The dye is then applied on the fabric through the screen to print the desired image.
The base fabric for these sarees is the forever-favourite made-in-heaven mul.
The mul cotton is what we call ‘made in heaven’ at Suta. Known in West Bengal as mul mul, the fabric is buttery soft and delicately beautiful. The weave of this fabric is very fine, and this lends a very fluid texture to it that makes draping it a breeze. It is truly like a hug that wraps you in its love!
