She sits by the window and her expectant face revels in the cool, moist wind. It must be raining somewhere; she thinks… It has just started raining here and the intoxicating fragrance of the first drops of rain on the earth -  is wafting through. Petrichor it is called, you know! Days of relentless heat and unblemished skies had her longing for the sight of the sultry grey clouds. Her heart gleams with joy, and the stormy hues of the sky make her smile in a way the sunshine couldn’t have done. She’s glad that she’s donning the willowy linen drape – it kind of matches her mood.

This lovely purple-grey and zari-edged saree will remind you of the rains you’ve always loved and bring you thoughts of when you were younger. The somber but almost mystical colours of this saree follows the ancient Megh Malhar Raag, the raag famed to bring on the rains!

Linen is one of the oldest and most widely used fabrics thanks to its versatility. Particularly in countries that experience hot summers for a large part of the year, Linen exists more as a soft summer breeze that just happens to cover up their body as clothing! It feels oh-so-comfortable to the skin while appearing crisp and sturdy even in humid conditions. However, it is not a bed of roses to make a Linen saree. The stunning Linen saree come from pretty hardcore and labour-intensive procedures. Flax is grown (it takes around 100 days to cultivate) and its fibre is separated before it is woven into fabric. Each of these processes involves manual labour and extensive physical work. The separation of flax fibres involves a process called retting and the weaving is done with specific counts as per requirements. The earliest Linen in Egypt is said to have had a thread count of 450 to an inch, which is finer than anything woven today! In a world of factory produced fully machine made fabrics, the Linen stands stubbornly demanding the involvement of hand-work. So, the Linen that reaches you is a story of these heroes who pack in that extra little bit of love along with their amazing work.

This saree is a blend of linen with zari that gives the fabric an ethereal look and feel! Zari has always been used to infuse that special glow, making fabrics look festive and full of shine. As the zari celebrates you by building a halo of light around you, revel in the beauty and join in the celebration!
