Saree of the day : From the Looms of the BODO GADI Tribe:
The Bodos (pronounced BORO) are an ethnic and linguistic community, the most aboriginal tribe of Brahmaputra valley in the North East part of India. The Bodos are recognized as a plains' tribe in the Sixth Schedule of the Indian Constitution. Udalguri and Kokrajhar of Assam are considered the centre of the Bodo area. Historically the great Bodos were known as the Mech. Even today the Bodos living in West Bengal, Nagaland and Nepal are called Mech. The Bodos use the term Bodosa (which is pronounced as Borosa meaning son of Bodo) to describe themselves. The Gadis are a sub sect of the Bodo tribe
The motifs are mostly imitation of flowers, ferns, trees, butterflies, animals, birds and even Assamese traditional ornaments like the Thuria, Loka Paro, Joonbiri and Gaam kharu.
On this Sari:
Karbi: The Karbi designs and patterns are some of the most commonly used design patterns. The motif is called the Jamiliaman and has two birds sitting on a tree facing each other.
Phool Buta: Most patterns and motifs used in the traditional garments are representation of nature. Hence a flower or a bunch of flowers are one of the most common motif found in the traditional Assamese garments.
This beauty serendipitously found a home with me and has sparrows and houses woven on it..it's called the gaas sorai
Gaas is tree and sorai is sparrow.. A gentle reminder to save this gentle bird, the sparrow .. let's do our bit to help the little bird
