festival of colors celebrated in February or March. It is also known as Holi across the Indian subcontinent.
Holi is one of the most joyous festivals celebrated in India. It not only signifies the onset of spring but also signifies the triumph of good over evil. The celebration begins the night before with the Dahan or incineration of the Holi pyre. This ritual symbolizes the destruction of evil. The next morning is celebrated as Holi – where people smear and drench each other with powdered colors, water balloons, and water guns.
With this collection, we have tried capturing the spirit of this festival. Our canvas was plain mangalgiri cotton sarees. They were then embellished with block-printed patches in a myriad of prints and colors. Each saree is also adorned with the most beautiful handcrafted tassels, some of which have been sourced from a craft-based NGO situated in Rajasthan.
This was one of the most interesting and creatively satisfying collections which we have worked on. We hope that you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed creating it.
