I explained to her the various ways of draping the Sari depending upon the region in India you are from. For example, Gujarati/Rajastani has a similar way of pleating the front, then draping across the right shoulder, versus a Maharashtrian would drape the sari placed at the center back, where the ends are brought forward and tied securely, then two ends are wrapped around the legs.
One raw material, with several different finished products. Fascinating! For Cam & I, that was the one thing we could wrap our head around - unity in diversity. What creative art in clothing one piece of fabric can make. I was happy to see one of my dearest friends get to experience what it's like to walk & talk in a Sari. Soon enough, she will be the expert at the next festive occasion!
