Some ocassions merit special attention. Away from your ownself. I was invited to grace the World Cancer Day programme at Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences in Kochi and it was a reality check. To be amongst scores of women who embody exemplary human spirit and courage to live, and fight the adversities. Of those who challenged and won, and continue to inspire and believe. I wore a cotton handwoven sari, one of the first pieces that was woven on revived looms after the 2018 floods in Chendamangalam through an initiative aided by @savetheloom_org. The simplicity and elegance of this sari that embraced me warmly was also woven by a survivor. Of cancer. Of a natural calamity. By an extraordinary woman who chose to defy the odds in her life and saw hope. The beauty of this handweave infused immense confidence and embodied so many stories. #iamandiwill #worldcancerday #chendamangalam #handloom #handwoven #storiesofwomen #survivors #signsforchange #wecanican #hope #life #chendamangalam #savetheloom
You’re clearly mistaken if you thought the Kasavu was an Onam specific style. Look at Samyuktha Menon casually rocking this blue-bordered handwoven Kasavu saree bringing out the Malayali beauty in her! You can also try this pattern like the actress and make sure to experiment with different colours!

This past week I was in Delhi to cheer for a movement I am passionate about since they began their work in Kerala last year after the floods – Save The Loom. They have been doing some exemplary work – not just about the revival process post floods or ensuring better livelihood for the artisans but in bringing holistic paradigm shift in the manner the entire industry has been functioning. Congratulations @savetheloom_org . Your work has been deeply meaningful so far and I hope you shall continue this journey to bring back pride to the craft and its artisans. I on my part shall be the self appointed torchbearer for your work and shall support in every way I can. Life changing experiences are always born out of inner beliefs and deep reason to stay true to yourself. This is one such journey that has impacted me and you shall hear from me more on this. Attending this event in Delhi swell my heart with pride to see the recognition coming to an organisation that worked in the grassroots in Kerala being acknowledged at the highest platform for celebrating craft and our artisans.

Samyuktha is someone who appreciates ethnic designs and fusion clothing. This modern style made in Khadi, a minimal approach with a longline jacket, basic top and pants make the perfect outfit to try out at formal events.

His entire life has been his message. The words he spoke, the actions he preached, the movements he started and symbolized are all relevant today more than ever as we celebrate his 150th birth anniversary. What he said a hundred years ago echoes in many spheres and aspects of life. Every time I read his words, I find resonance to my state of mind and deeper meanings to life and my work. A small body of determined spirits fired by an unquenchable faith in their mission can alter the course of history. ~ Mahatma Gandhi. Last year's flood in Kerala devastated many khadi institutions and its weavers, and spinners. Over 1000 people directly connected to the Gandhian way of life and practice lost their livelihoods. SaveTheLoom.org @savetheloom_org led its revival and ensured every charkha and loom is up and running in less than four months. A curated project Colors of Resilience was a tribute by 25 leading fashion designers using khadi from Kerala interpreting their individual imprint with the handspun, handwoven humble kora fabric. Much talked about and celebrated, I take great pride in wearing these outfits that reflects the essence of Gandhi's Khadi and the human spirit that fought the adversity. #ColorsOfResilience #savetheloom #khadi #GandhisKhadi #Kerala #artisans #weavers #handspun #handwoven #handmade #bethechange #kora @savetheloom_org @onezeroeight.stl @menonpr ~~~ Outfit : Padmaja Krishnan for SaveTheLoom @padmaja.online Styling : Alpi Boylla @alpiboylla Earrings /Footwear : Stylist's own Photo: @girisankarphotography Editing : @akhil_s_narayan
