The Rabari Man


The Rabari Man.

In 2018 I got the chance to meet a man dressed in a costume like this at The Lakme fashion week . I remember both me and my then boss being equally mesmerized by his attire as he walked into our stall., So much so that ,during the conversation my boss politely requested if she could touch the fabric that he was adorning. It was that beautiful. Not in a loud way. Not at all. In fact, amidst all the glitz that was fashion week, imagine a man walking in an all white attire, in a handloom cotton,completely hand stitched with beautiful tucks , gathers, folds, knots and a dozen more intricate details right to the last stitch .It felt like there was so much going on but in an unhurried manner, as if to say there was an underlying complexity that can be seen only if you pay attention.
