Spending every summer of my childhood at my grandmother’s house meant finding ways to entertain yourself, and my favourite was the oonjhal. It means “swing”, but really, this was not a swing. As wide as the dining hall, that oonjhal was my post-lunch nap spot, breakfast corner, reading nook and everything in between. Matching the old-school red oxide flooring, it was made in a deep brown with hints of maroon. The memories of comfort and carefree joy are carried to me in this maroon saree. Cut in a cotton-mul mix fabric, with black hand-made tassels at the end. Paired with our Salvia saree. The fabric is sourced from artisans in Tamil Nadu and hand-dyed in Mumbai.
