This 100 percent handwoven Katan Silk Benarasi is quintessentially splendid. Taking the traditional rich silk combination of grey and red many notches higher, this saree is woven in the rarest combination of ‘champagne/beige’ body and pristine red border. The border is further adorned with golden stripes. This entire mulberry tapestry is further adorned with brazen gold khadua embroidery, with the smallest yet striking red dot to go with it. The name chosen for the saree is quite thought after. ‘Surmai’ translates as beauty in hindi. True to its name, Surmai is indeed the 6 yards beauty, waiting to be draped by the the perfect one, who has an eye for aesthetics and a knack of finding beauty in eclecticism of the mundane!
Surmai : There is a certain beauty in the melancholy we feel smelling the petrichor, each time. There is an unresolved excitement in lovers sipping their favourite tea, for the same place, over and over again. There is an unsaid beauty in kissing our loved ones goodbye, before leaving the hearth, everyday likewise. There is an inexplicable beauty in mundanity, hard to fathom by simple minds but is a source of inspiration for the creative souls.
