Mytri.. spreading Saree love across the continents!
Upcycling sarees and transforming them into pretty wearables, thereby spreading love across the continents is the new haute aspiration that I am in the process of presenting – The Mytri Collection from Rangeelaa. In the primary pursuit of sustainability and employability, my vision is about to become a tangible reality that would spread the love of the Saree across borders and the cheer of international sisterhood!
Mytri is synonymous with Friendship and this collection is being sourced by the women in India, my friends, friends of friends who have contributed to this growing collection of lovely sarees that couldbe fairly recent or even a few decades old, that will be revamped by my seamstresses who are workinground the clock, to produce the fabulous skirts that you will witness when the Mytri collection is ushered into Rangeelaa. This is like carrying someone’s legacy forward and is going to be a proud moment for Rangeelaa!
The very fabric of being independent women interwoven with grit, generosity and the need to spread love spells Mytri. These women are going to ride the upcycling wave and work on a diverse range of saree fabrics and come up with a fresh spin to the saree skirts. This is not only going to unleash the creative side of our ladies as we are going to personally handpick and match the layers of the accumulated beauties, but to have my girls watch me and learn as they proudly support their families with their fair earnings. The process of accumulation of sarees is a painful one but will be definitely well worth the effort. The process of matching layers will not only be an exciting one considering the versatile sarees that are pouring in but will need a concentrated effort in terms of fast colors, prints, embellishments and the embroidery on the sarees.
The Mytri collection is all about spreading love, friendship and uplifting lives of the less fortunate women and bringing some light into their otherwise dark homes. Hoping that each gorgeous skirt from this delightfully different and unique collection will be a precious addition to someone’s lucky closet.
