Madhubani Saree- A Drape of Elegance

The beauty and elegance of a saree is unmatched! The six yards of a saree add a touch of femininity and radiance to any wearer. Over the years having watched Ma drape various kinds of sarees with an unbelievable expertise, I always yearned to own a few sarees of my own. Confusion often won over choice as there are many options available, as I wanted something unique.

I came across a wonderful "Madhubani" saree collection by Triveni Ethnics and chose one instantly! Ma pestered me to wear it immediately but I took my time. Finally, I could wait no longer and succumbed to the charm of this wonderful attire that in every fold talks about the hard work of its weaver!



The saree was a beautiful creation in art silk fabric that gelled well with a kundan set - traditional Indian gemstone jewellery.



A pearl kamarbandh- type of ornament worn around the waist added subtle glamour to my drape.



The pallu with an intricate Madhubani print patch was my favorite part.
