I showcased this saree a few days and I HATED the disjointed border then and I still do.
But now seeing the saree up close and looking at the blouse and the prints and cut work, I wouldn’t dismiss it as I did before.
This is a printed Kanjeevaran saree from Satya Paul. This is what the blurb say about it:
The Satya Paul collection has printed Kanjeevarams are a beautiful blend of the old and the new; while keeping in the beautiful richness of the thread work and borders of the Kanjeevaram, the use of print makes the look of the woman to be years younger.
A Kanjivaram silk sari with machine and hand embroidery.
I thought it was worth a second look.
