The term `karigar’, means `artisan’ in Hindustani.

India has a centuries old art and craft heritage that includes rich textile weaving traditions as well as surface pattern and embellishment techniques like printing, dyeing and embroidery.

I have no clue how people shop for a wedding. I, myself, have only shopped for a friend’s wedding once before, and when I showed up to the wedding I was grossly overdressed! My friends joked, “Shaadi teri hai kya?” and the bride giggled and patted me on the back. Needless to say it was mortifying and I was quite apprehensive about today’s trip to the showroom.
