Flame Scarlet-Red and Beige Printed Batik Sari from Madhya Pradesh with Painted Border and Anchal
Simplicity and an appeal of the basic characterises the sarees produced in the Central Highlands of the subcontinent. Fashioned from pure homegrown cotton for a texture that remains unparalleled in the rest of the world, this saree would be a fine pick to wear to poojas. The rich red of the sheer field brings out the white and gold paint of the border, while the beige of the pleats is superimposed with batik prints. Together with the folk batik prints, the hand-painted border of this saree conveys a charming sense of the rustic.
