Mom's Wardrobe - Ikat Sarees & Mundu

After Edition 1 of my Mom's Wardrobe, here's the 2nd part with more of her gorgeous sarees!!!
This is a Handloom Ikat Saree from Orissa. 
No, I'm not talking about the god damn Ikat prints. This is original Ikat!!! Personally, Ikat 'prints' are the worst design element that I've seen so far. The Ikat prints, no matter how detailed it is, it can never even come near the gorgeousness and the handmade exquisiteness of original Ikat, with a technique older that 2000 years old (Yup, proof of existence of Ikat technique is available from Ajanta Cave Paintings!), known and practiced till date by our Indian artisans.

Handpainted Bamboo bangles she paired up with the saree!
The close-up of the extremely intricate weave (Yes, its a technique of incorporating the design in the weaving stage itself before the fabric is produced!) of the Ikat pattern in the pallu. 

One more of her gorgeous Handloom Ikat Sarees from Orissa.
This is a double Ikat saree, a much more complicated process that the single Ikat seen in the prev. saree. 


 Colorful Chennapatna handmade wooden bangles she paired up with the saree!
The double Ikat check pattern in the body of the saree and the intricate single Ikat in the pallu.


This is the traditional 2 piece Mundu of Kerala. Unlike a saree which is in 5.5m, this is a 2 piece outfit with totals to about just 4m.
