So I took sometime off from this blog and I’m back now at it. So recently, the weather in Kolkata has been quiet cloudy with rains and thunderstorms. Now I’m a person who doesn’t really like cloudy weathers a lot because I feel it kind of makes my mood come down. Hey, I’m not going against you guys who love rains. I agree that the weather is comfy and makes up for some great tasty snacks! But sometimes, the cloudy days kind of make my mood go down as opposed to sunny days. So I wore this bright Kantha scarf to college one day and it got all the good feedbacks that it is worth of.
For the ones who don’t know, Kantha is an embroidery technique from the eastern region of India. Its still practised in many parts of West Bengal and I picked up this scarf from a handicraft fair from Kolkata. This Kantha scarf is made by patchworks and then embroidered with running stitches. These patches are cut from different pieces of fabric and hence the product is so colourful. I definitely believe everyone should have a colourful embroidery scarf. It not only adds a charm to your outfit but also speaks about skills and hardworking of the artisans who are still working till this date to keep this handicraft alive till today.
I believe that on a grey cloudy day wearing a bright outfit or a scarf can make you be so cheerful and happy. Most necessarily, its not just an impact your making on yourself, its something that when others see you wear some bright beautiful stuff, they will become naturally cheerful as well! Its like a rainbow or the sun peeking out of clouds on a grey cloudy day. It just works two-way and its definitely cool! Paired up this colourful scarf with a basic t-shirt and blue denim, just makes it the best combination.
