Indian silk sari fabric!

It’s half term this week so I haven’t had much time to post.  Haven’t done much else either because I’ve been down with DS2’s lurgy from last week and I haven’t felt like doing much…

So let me titivate your senses with photos of the silk sari fabric which DH brought me back from India.

silk pashmina

Actually this is a pashmina …

blue and green sari fabric

I love the gold edging on these..

burgundy coloured silk sari fabric

This one is very fine, almost chiffony.

green and red sari silk with tie dyeing

This piece is my favourite.  It is mostly green, with that red tie dyed piece at the end.  I love the way the red and green dyes have been allowed to merge into one another at the edges.  Here is a closeup of the tie dyed piece:

I’ve been looking at websites of how to wear sari fabric now… I think it’ll be a while before I dare to cut any of this lot up!!

    Hope you are feeling better Liz, gorgeous Sari’s, I’ve had several for years, and I just can’t cut them up, I just look at them now and again, and have one hanging over a pole in the hall.

    Yum yum – what a saintly man, to have gone and picked out all this gorgeous sari silk for you. I love the red-to-green one, too – as well as the tie-dyed piece. Have fun fondling it till you decide what to do with it.

    I sympathize Liz. I can hardly bear to cut up some of my favorite cottons so I would never be able to touch those beautiful saris. Lucky you.

    good pictures of sarees. I am a saree seller from Surat. I help my husband in this business, really saree is a comfortable women costume, adn it is also a symbol of India tradition.
