Painted Saris

These days fabric painting is in vogue-on saris, suits and other dresses blended with embroidery or as it is. Here is a sari painted beautifully with birds.  It is pure cotton with blue and yellow borders on either sari. I don't know what to call the colour of the body of the sari-may be grey?
Yellow border on one side. The entire sari is painted with bird motifs in blue yellow and red, like these in small size.
 Blue border on the other side
This is the pallu painted with bigger sized birds.
The borders are also painted very artistically.

The sari is the Bengal cotton sari and has been painted by the artisans from Bengal. Beautiful isn't it it? So we are preparing for the hot summers here ......

Watch out for more....
