The original is part of our collection and there are about 8 different kinds of pooja sarees in our collection both in silk and cotton. Pavithra worked with Mr.Veeraraghavan to recreate this 40 years ago and this design, in many variations, has gone on the employ whole villages over the years. When Pavithra wanted to rereate the original, Mr.Veeraghavan said he couldn’t weave the border or recreate the ikat dots on the body. So Pavithra made changes to the design and came up with a saree with the border changed and to get the ikat dot effect, she made him weave a dotted line right through the weft. The pallu remains the same as the original. The design came to stay and this is how we all know the pooja saree to be. After many years we decided to restart this design when we were asked to recreate the design as a part of the collection for the Indira Gandhi Centenary Celebrations. This saree is woven with a pure silk warp and a cotton weft. The fabric is lovely as the silk used is of a superior quality and doesn’t feel like the silk cotton sarees one gets in the market. It comes with a matching blouse piece.
