Solapuri ‘Haute Couture’

3M has a weakness for fabrics... especially for handloom. So he was trawling the net for something interesting from Maharashtra - Mashru, Himroo, Paithani, Narayan Peth, Solapuri Chadar... सोलापुरी चादर??? has 3M gone crazy? How can such a lowly fabric be included in the list of fine fabrics? Care to check out this snap below?

Well... even 3M was amused to see this innovative use of our humble chadar by James Ferreira @ Lakme Fashion Week! But sadly due to Government apathy this unique heritage is dying out...
