A flowing kalamkari number. A silken dupatta like the one that you see on this page is just the thing to add an ethnic spin to your casual and semi-formal outfits. Team this with a solid-colored Indian suit or wear it like a scarf layered over a western ensemble, this is one buy you cannot go wrong with. The foundation color is a dark blue or red, with the edges being of opposite color for the Insignia Blue and Merlot Red styles, while for Moonlit Ocean, the border is a solid-colored pale cream with eclectic blue zigzags. The motif predominating the field of the dupatta is the contemplative Buddha head, a favorite of kalamkari artisans of the South.
The thick black lines that define the face of the Buddha and the perfect symmetry executed thereby are characteristic of kalamkari. On the border of the dupatta is a depiction of Krishnaleela, another avatara of Lord Vishnu like the Buddha (the Vrindavan cowherd is seated at the riverbank with His Radha and His bovine charge). The gossamer-like fabric is translucent, adding to the beauty and elegance of the work. It is a long, versatile number that is sure to find a place in your wardrobe no matter your style.
