Everytime we walk into a saree store, i am blown away by the amount of creativity in each piece.. The rich colours, the intricate patterns and how grand the whole fabric looks. But yes, i am not too big on wearing silk sarees, although i do enjoy the occasional dressing up for weddings and other special occasions, matching it with the few pieces of jewellery that i have… 🙂

During the visit to Kanchipuram, i got the chance to visit a weaver who was kind enough to show us around his loom. But the thing that caught my eye was the bunch of silk that looked like silver threads all wound up, sitting and waiting to become another beautiful saree… The owner of the store also opened a cupboard to reveal some wonderful bright coloured threads….
