"My Mom's Sari Pallu". ❤❤❤
//Got it on WA and since it carries beautiful emotions, sharing it. I also have read a similar narrative by @ShefVaidya , which was also a terrific one! Enjoy the writing!!/// #SareeTwitter #sareelove #saree
I don't think our kids know what a pallu is as mothers now rarely wear saree. The principle use of Ma's pallu was to provide elegance to her drape. But along with that, it also served as a potholder for removing hot pans from the stove. ❤
It was wonderful for drying children's tears, and on occasion was even used for cleaning out dirty ears and as a hand towel. ❤

#Story of my journey from #Housewife to #SareeDraper
I started my career as a fashion stylist for ad-shoots. After I got married wore saree on regular basis as I love wearing saree and I respect the attire brought down by my grandmothers and mothers.
I took #career break because of random #shoot timings, got busy with my family and kids. I was a housewife and used to get many compliments for the way I wore #sarees .
I used to help people #drape saree and so they started recommending me to others, this is how I realized To change this passion into profession. Saree is classic Indian attire and has perennial and eminent history and I want to popularize the art of perfect saree draping.

#SareeTwitter trivia- 19th century women wore no blouse with saree. To keep up with victorian sense of propriety, the wife of a civil servant in colonial India, Jnanadanandini Debi designed what we now wear as a blouse under sarees
More #SareeTwitter trivia- sarees were not worn with front pleats. The maharani of Cooch Behar (in Bengal) started wearing front pleats that allowed mobility over the common wrapped around saree
Even now certain communities do not use front pleats and simply wrap around the saree differently that allows women to go around doing their chores

#SareeTwitter It is time for some #SareeTrivia. Do you know why the pallu of the Nivi Sari drape is on the left shoulder and not on the right? Cozy up with some chai or the drink of your choice. This history will blow your mind. #SareeTwitter #SareeHistory
The pallu is on the left shoulder as the person who invented the Nivi drape was right handed. She needed her right hand available for work, and handshakes. Therefore the pallu of the Nivi drape is on the left. Simple! So who invented the Nivi drape? #SareeTwitter #SareeHistory
Jnanadanandini Devi Tagore (JDT), wife of Satyendranath Tagore, and sister-in-law of Rabindranath Tagore is credited with the creation of the now Nivi drape. When and why did she have to invent a drape? #SareeTwitter #SareeHistory
