Jataka Fables on Upcycled Lehenga

Once upon a time, there lived a girl named Maya in the town of Hamsa. Maya wanted to become a weaver but her family was too poor to support her dreams. They could not afford a weaving machine or the raw materials needed to practise the craft. But this did not stop Maya. At night, she would sneak into the workshops of other weavers and steal unused scraps of fabric to fuel her love for weaving.

Despite her passion and talent, the villagers made fun of Maya’s creations and her methods. But this did not bother her. Every garment she created told the story of hope and courage. One day, a group of foreigners passing through the village saw Maya’s creation. They fell in love with her work and offered to pay her lots of money to buy the designs.

Instead of being greedy for money, Maya saw this opportunity to do good. She asked the foreigners if she could accompany them on their travels and teach others her art of upcycling and the benefits of sustainable practices and taking care of the environment. The foreigners were impressed by Maya’s kindness and agreed to the idea. Maya inspired people of different villages to see beauty in scrap materials and learn how to protect the environment.

Moral of the story- Maya's journey teaches us that difficulties can be overcome with creativity and compassion and that true wealth is found in sharing knowledge, and preserving the environment.

Styling Tips For Your Upcycled Lehenga

1. Jewellery

To create the most elegant look, wear Jhumkas, Kadas, and statement necklaces with a traditional upcycled lehenga. For a more modern look mix in modern elements like sleek cuffs or minimalist earrings.

2. Choose a Hairstyle

Your hairstyle can affect the overall look. For a classic and elegant look, wear your hair in a sleek bun or flowy curls with fresh flowers. For a more modern and edgy look try a ponytail or a braid with loose strands of hair framing your face.

3. Footwear

Juttis or embroidered heels look stunning under traditional upcycled lehengas. If you're looking to add a modern edge to your outfit, pair your lehenga with metallic or transparent heels for a modern twist.

4. Draping Styles

While the conventional way of draping a dupatta over one shoulder is timeless, explore other draping techniques to add a touch of your style to the overall outfit. Try draping the dupatta in a cape style or letting it flow gracefully down your arms for a more dynamic look.

5. Makeup

Your makeup should match the colors of your upcycled lehenga. To create a glamorous look try a red lip and winged eyeliner. Try rose gold and peach shades for a romantic look.

If you want to protect the delicate fibers, we suggest dry cleaning or hand washing in cold water with a moderate detergent. After gently squeezing out extra water, air-dry the dupatta in the shade rather than wringing or twisting it. Use a cotton cloth to shield the fabric from direct heat when ironing on a low-heat setting.

5. How to store upcycled lehenga?

- Your stunning upcycled lehenga needs to be stored away from direct sunlight in a separate packaging cover made of acid-free materials. While folding your lehenga, wrap it in unbleached cotton or muslin cloth to prevent creasing.
