The story behind 'damobai'
'damobai' is and will always be very special to me. it has a beautiful story behind its existence. i remember as a child my grandmother had a kota saree from rajasthan which she wore for special occasions. on one such occasion i unintentioanly dropped a bowl full of curry on her and completely ruined her saree. i very vividly remember her comforting me saying there is nothing to worry about, but i still managed to see the tears in her eyes. i could tell that she was heartbroken but was only trying to pull a straight face to make me feel better. something about her sad eyes stayed with me. many years later i found the stained saree wrapped in a mul mul cloth amongst her things and that is when she said that the saree was a special gift to her from my granddad. my heart broke the second time and i remember dragging my dad all around kolkata to find the same saree, unfortunately i couldn’t. i still have the original saree and last year i decided to recreate it in the form of 'damobai' to honour my grandmother. the chand motif you see in 'damobai' was what my grandmother loved the most and i think it certainly adds to the beauty of this piece. i remember my grandmother wore red and black glass bangles to match the ganga jamuna border in the saree and not to forget her trusted red bind. 'damobai' is precious, beautiful and priceless. it has my grandmother's approval and i do hope you all like it too!
