Something I stitched together for my husband. (That’s him modelling it. Don’t ask me why he wouldn’t allow me to photograph his face!) The kurta is a traditional “shirt” in Indian culture. It’s quite an ancient piece of clothing. It is mentioned even in the Mahabharat story , the Indian epic, where the warriors like Karna and Arjuna wear it to ceremonies.
And I chose blue for my first piece because that’s my favorite color. (My husband is not too fond of it for whatever reason.) It happens to be the color of my favorite Hindu God, Shiva the destroyer, who is named as Neelakantha or the Blue One, in the Shiv Puran , the sacred Hindu scripture associated with him.
