We all would have worn our mother’s saree at least once in our lifetime. May it be at your farewell party, or to your relative’s function, or even your wedding, when in doubt, just put in the best saree from your mother’s wardrobe. There is at least a 2 decade gap between our mother and us, which is the reason for our different fashion choices but putting on your mother’s saree can never go wrong.
Women’s love for their mother’s saree can be simply because it’s their mother’s, and anything that is owned by our mothers should be treasured and kept close to us forever! Another reason can be the love and warmth they feel when they wrap around their mother’s saree, of the woman who was their first inspiration.
It brings back those memories of our childhood days, and how our mothers were our favourite people back then. And if the mother has a good taste in sarees, your mother’s sarees become more than hers.
Taking inspiration from our mother’s wardrobe, we have recreated some sarees as a tribute to every mother out there!
Here are a few sarees that we have recreated throughout the years as a tribute to our mothers.
1994: Isn’t Pink one of the most beautiful colours when it comes to ethnic wear? We surely love recreating sarees in Pink. This Vintage-soaked yard of pure pink coloured silk has all our hearts. Added to this, are the golden dots all over the attire.
1996: One of our oldest sarees from the mother’s wardrobe is this Wine Colored Cotton Saree with Grey Borders. Although it wasn’t an organic fabric, the look and feel was surely classic!
2003: Pastel and copper colors can never go wrong! Working on the same lines, we designed a pure silk saree. Simplicity always does wonders. This copper-colored plain pure silk saree is close to our hearts and one of our favorites.
2005: 2000s have been the decade of experimentation, and one such experiment was this pink saree of ours. This linen silk cotton saree is without a pallu. The major attraction of this saree is its enticing border and beautifully detailed floral borders.
Recreating these sarees brought back fond memories of our childhood. Those days when wearing our mother’s saree was exciting to another level. We can’t bring back those days, but through these sarees we paid a tribute to the real-life superheroes of our lives - our mothers!
