Image: Dhanak Citrine silver grid saree by Anavila
The noon sun on the water shone golden bright,
as the silver river draped over earthly brown bodies
and went searching for the ocean in lovely crooked lines.
This saree in pure handwoven linen and silver zari is a tribute to nature’s amazing ability to delight our senses with her raw colours. We adore the tinseled charm and unapologetic happiness that this saree channels. It reminds us of the loveliness of natural water bodies mirroring the tropical sun blaze in glimmering silver and flashes of reflected colours. The mood it sets is bright and promising. Lightweight, breezy, delightfully soft on your skin, and 100% natural, it has all the qualities we love about linen. We think it makes the perfect festive saree for life events and joyous celebrations.
This beauty is part of the Rithihi curation of Anavila’s Dhanak collection that’s currently housed at our store in Colombo. It’s a beautiful mix of linen sarees adorned with gold or silver zari and gorgeous separates like Matka silk kaftans and flowy, wide trousers. Like all Anavila pieces, these are an impossible fusion of ethereal and earthy, carrying the brand’s remarkable craftsmanship, attention to detail, and philosophy of mindful creation.
