know that somebody’s complete attention was on that weaving for many days. To experience the magic of a Kanjivaram is to know that you are wearing a sari that is at once smart, stylish, sensual and classic. ABOUT SARANGI Sarangi celebrates the spirit of the Kanjivaram with a range of saris that are elegant, beautiful and always special. Never blatanly modern, each sari is designed keeping the aesthetics and sensibility of The Kanjivaram in mind. This is a venture by S.Ahalya and Prabodh Jain, the promoters of Rasvihar. “We see Kanjivaram silk saris as complimentary to Rasvihar jewellery. Both share similar aesthetic sensibilities and are rooted in their Indian-ness.”, says Ahalya, jewellery designer, and, now, the curator of Sarangi. “To me when something is beautiful, whether it’s jewellery or silk saris, there’s harmony, meaning and purpose. And for that to happen it must compliment their personality and be relevant to their life & lifestyle.”, adds Ahalya. The name Sarangi is inspired by the Indian musical instrument of the same name, whose sound is as expressive and evocative as a hundred colours. The word sarangi is derived from two Hindi words: sau (meaning "hundred") and rang (meaning "colour"). THE STORE Sarangi is housed in a vintage 1963 bungalow, tastefully modified to suit the requirements of a sari store. It shares space with Rasvihar, the jewellery store. “I wanted to create a space that offers privacy, luxury and comfort to my clients. A space where they could browse at their leisure, in a relaxing environment.”, says Ahalya. If you’d like more information about this topic, or to schedule an interview with S.Ahalya, please call Prabodh Jain +91.94440.53507 or email press.contact@sarangithestore.com. --THE END--
