No, I am not some king from the Mahabharata or anything. Just read this article on ET.
People in the UK are buying Benarasi sarees to use as curtains. But they are so behind the trend on this one!
Sarees have been multi purpose at home, as long as I can remember. Want a makeshift curtain for that especially hot day? Mom’s saree it is! Feeling really cold on a Margazhi night, grandma’s old silk saree will keep you warm!
Imagine using one of their skirts as a curtain.. Yuck!
