She grabbed her bag from her dresser on her way out of the door, quickly checking her reflection in its polished surface. As she slipped on her brand new shoes, she felt her sister gently tap her shoulder. She spied a small brass bowl in her sister’s hands and, at once, she knew exactly what it was. A humble rice pudding that contained three simple ingredients – rice, milk and sugar – and a whole lot of love. Nothing new could begin without it and nothing good felt as good if you didn’t have a little payesh to celebrate. It was a tradition that had been passed on from mother to daughter, for as long as she could remember.

Even when it felt as though the world had moved on and gestures such as these held little meaning, for that brief moment, she could feel the tender love of several generations of women in that little spoon.

Like the flecks of powdered cardamom and shredded rose petals, the embellishments on this white mul cotton saree make us long for the nostalgic comfort of a bowl of payesh.

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!

Jamdani, an incredibly intricate weaving technique, is not just a craft but a legacy. The process of weaving a Jamdani saree takes many days and is a labour of love. The designs are first drawn on graph paper and the weaving pattern is ideated. The design is then woven into the saree by controlling the weft as the warp remains the base. This technique of weaving makes the motifs appear like they are floating on the extremely soft and fluid cotton fabric of the saree. Jamdani sarees are painstakingly woven on handlooms by master weavers and their mastery is reflected in the surreal gorgeousness of each saree.
