    Namaste Anu! Sitting on a rooftop in Lucknow, enjoying the colour of your recent posts. Thank you for your sweet message and link. I’ve been thinking of you during my travels in India, and taking particular note of the different saris I’ve seen along the way… Last week I was staying in a small village in West Bengal. There are silk weavers nearby and I fell in love with a beautiful hand embroidered (kantha) sari. Would love to send you some photos! M x

      That sounds entirely lovely, it’s great that you are travelling through so many different parts of India. Kantha saris are beautiful – actually I love the whole Bengal aesthetic – look forward to seeing the pics on the blog (alternatively my email is lighthousetropical at gmail dot com).
