Ramdhonu - Pushpak in our Ramdhonu Gorod sharee.
For years Gorod was considered as "Boron er Sharee", "Snidur Khelar sharee" - sarees our mothers and grandmothers reserved for auspicious occasions and photographers for portraying Bengal. One of my most favourite scenes of a woman in Gorod (much before Vidya Balan in Kahani) was Rakhi in Aparna Sen's Parama. In short Gorod for the longest time and for most of us meant, the quintessential married Bengali woman's sharee worn mostly during Pujo. And the saree when worn makes sounds like someone is munching potato chips.
We broke both the above stereotypes by making Gorod in brightest of colours and without starch.
Pushpak has broken every possible stereotypes that we associate with sarees. And we are so glad he wore Gorod out of so many other weaves that we work with.
Shada Laal Paar that is often perceived as "typical Bengali woman's" colours by many has found colours of the rainbow in a true saree connoisseur.
Beautiful Paisleys on the border and pallu and flowers woven on the Kora body.
We have named the red and white Ramdhonu to celebrate Pride colours.
