“I will mostly wear silk saris. But on the day of visarjan, we wear white saris with a red border,” says Priyanka Baidya.
Her good friend, Panaji-based Sharmistha Das Nandi has a distinct sari she picked up in Santiniketan. “It is a khesh weave, and is made from scrap and recycled cotton saris,” she tells us.
