What was it about Gulaal? Why did the vivid pink bring her immense joy? Was it because it made her feel like she was celebrating Holi, the rambunctious festival of colours? Or was it because it encouraged her to embrace her feminine beauty in all its strength? Because although you may call it beautiful, you know you mean to say that it is strong. 

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. It is most often woven with a 'rui-phool' or 'cotton flower' motif in the border and carries 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.
