An innovative and unusual sari is woven in the usual manner but has been created out of a combination of plain handwoven cotton fabric, the same fabric printed with Tamil letters, and rich red handwoven silk printed with a black flower motif. This presentation demonstrates how a very contemporary textile piece draws upon ancient handskills and uses the Tamil script to dramatic effect.
