Kashmiri Aari work Sari

I brought this saree from Kashmir. It is called aari work. It is completely hand embroidery, done only in Kashmir. This is what I wore for a family wedding today.

That is my mom and my chachi. My chachi is very sweet. Lovely person. ( For non Indian readers- chachi means aunt. Father's younger brother's wife.)

My chachi is actually a very nice person. When I was a kid, I used to write loooong letters to her. Real letters. Not emails. We did not have emails then.
