Gharchola Remake

With wedding season in full gear, we thought we would share one of our favorite wedding ideas with you! A traditional gift the bride received from the groom’s family in an Indian wedding is a Gharchola Sari (a Rajisthani style sari patterned with checks and bandhni designs). All three of us received this type of sari from our mother-in-laws and although they are absolutely gorgeous, they don’t lend themselves to “re-wearing” for other events. Sheena & Dipti, being married into a Kutchi family (a family that is originally from the region of Kutch), by tradition wear this sari to family weddings that they attend from the groom’s side. In trying to keep with the tradition but also make a unique look out of our gharcholas, Sheena “re-made” her sari into something more her style. Check out her Gharchola remake and share your thoughts on her version below.

      Unfortunately, we don’t have a before image, as we never wore it before we re-made it into this version. The before sari, however, was a full sari of the red part that you see in the pictures above (the gharchola part).

      Thank you! We actually had it remade in India. We have not yet found a tailor locally but are working on finding some we can share with our readers. In any event, we would love to send you our designers contact in Bombay if you are interested.
