I mostly wear hand woven silks and cotton garments. I support handloom weavers always and hence I kept all my work aside and came for this exhibition. I am always questioned when I go for shows abroad which brands I wear. But my reply is simple as I wear the clothes made by the rural weavers who are the original fashion designers. We talk about using environment friendly colors, but the rural weavers are already aware of this issue. They may not be educated in schools but they have the basic knowledge” said the dancer. Sanchita Bhattacharya, an admirer of Tussar silk saris was awestruck with a sari due to the rawness of the silk. She plans to make a few purchases just before the winter.
