Having a new home, our own, and starting to really settle in has been so much fun and a source of such pride and delight. The ladies are becoming more and more autonomous and exercising their own initiative in wonderful ways. The latest has been the introduction of a uniform. The colour is a lovely pink and the style the traditional kurtha surwal but the ladies have displayed their individuality in their choice of collars, sleeves, trousers etc. (Can I just say, this is the beauty of the kurtha surwal…so much scope. IMHO a magnificent garment!!! ED)
The shawl is black and a light easy to wear one that can be put aside in the presence of cutting machines and pasta machines! There is something very special for the ladies in being able to be identified as part of this special group or artists.
