Every time she heard a colour described as bainguni, it would remind her of her mother's friends discussing sarees. Tea colour, kairi, jamuni, bainguni..... none of these ideas had made sense to her, until she discovered how descriptive and appropriate they were! After all, what better word was there to describe the magenta/violet sheen of a brinjal, just ready to be plucked?

Induri sarees are like Maheshwari sarees in their construction. Pure silk in the warp, pure cotton in the weft, with distinctive borders drawing from nature and the surrounding architecture. They are most often woven with a 'rui-phool' or 'cotton flower' motif in the border and usually carry vertical stripes in the body. 

Indore is under three hours from Maheshwar, and it is said that in the early days of weaving in Maheshwar, since Indore was the better known place, traders and weavers referred to these sarees as Induri sarees. The irony is that while Maheshwari sarees have now become quite well known, the earlier designs of Induri sarees are not very commonly found.

Make these your own. Soak in history. Feel like a queen.
