Precious things I

In August 2012 Kate Fletcher of Local Wisdom invited people to share the story of a garment or wearable that is special to them. There were two sessions in the San Francisco bay area. I had to pick one garment for the project, which was hard. On the very day of the shoot, I decided to wear one of my favorite handmade kurta. I have been wearing it for more than six years. It has faded a little bit over the time. It was purchased   at a lovely textile boutique in Colombo owned by an Indian lady. The kurta has kalamkari work all over it and is dyed with plant dyes. This kurta makes me happy, calm, and composed every time I wear it.
