The much-sought after Mayuri saris will be exhibited again in Kochi from Friday. The two-day show at Abad Plaza on MG Road will showcase saris and salwar sets in stunning colours and unique prints and motifs.  

This year the focus is on fusion. Exclusive saris have been created by merging different fabrics together. The six yard wonders come with matching blouse pieces. “The timeless beauty has an uncanny way of complementing every Indian woman. There is really no other garment that’s falls so perfectly on a Indian woman, whatever be her shape or size. We believe that within every woman lies an inherent grace and style that a sari captures in the best possible manner,” said Thangam Mathai who is behind the venture. Thangam forayed into designing and set up Mayuri in Chennai in 1983 and has been experimenting with rare colours and designs to bring out bold and beautiful pieces.

This year she has broken away from convention and come up with fusion saris, mixing fabrics, textures, colours and prints.

She has mixed superknit with ‘chanderi’, blended cottons printed with woven checks and ‘pallau’ of  tussar with ‘kalamkari’. There are ‘chanderis with discharge prints, raw silk, ‘moongs’ and applique saris. These fusion wonders are captivating and priced at `2,500 and above.

Salwar fabrics in cotton, ‘chanderis’ and superknits in distinct motifs and block prints and embroidery and are also available at prices ranging above `700.

“We have created saris and salwar suit  fabrics keeping in mind the uniqueness of every individual wearing them,” said Thangam who has two outlets in Chennai. Her passion for designing has her going into the details of each sari from the warp and weft to its finishing touches.

Mayuri conducts exhibitions annually in the state, Bangalore, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Sri Lanka, Dubai, London, Singapore and Australia.

The sale is on from 10 am to 8 pm. — Express Features
