“Style is as unique and nontransferable and perfectly personal as a fingerprint. It is wise to take the time to develop one's own way of being, increasing those things one does well and eliminating the elements in one's character which can hinder and diminish the good personality. Seek the fashion which truly fits and befits you. You will always be in fashion if you are true to yourself, and only if you are true to yourself.”
― Maya Angelou
If you don't like my ocean don't fish in my sea
Stay out of my valley and let my mountain be.
- Ma Rainey
“If I can create a minimum of my plans and desires, there shall be no regrets.”
– Bessie Coleman
“I am no longer accepting the things I cannot change. I am changing the things I cannot accept.”- - Angela Davis
This is a double sided shawl. Can also double up as dupatta.
One side reflects the diversity through a mix of Kaleidoscope patchwork and bold box quilt patchwork. Embedded in these patchworks are stripes of back strap loom woven weaves peeping through the windows of Eri silk.
The other side reflects the familiarity through the sameness of the gentle handspun, hand woven, natural dyed eri silk.
Together they speak of the harmony of diversity within familiarity and familiarity within diversity!
Some women of colour add good air to my lungs when they assume their voice as their own. That moment when she reclaims herself in the milieu of authority, she sets a chain reaction towards the ability of make choices. In those choices, a new course of life is revealed. That new life is not commonplace. It is atrangi, made of strange colours. And because it is deeply felt, it is antrangi, like a trusted companion who you can share your deepest with.
