“ Every saree has a story . The Saree isn't just a garment. It's a carrier of the stories of the weavers, artisans and merchants that made it what it is. And so when you drape a saree you tell their stories along with your own.” - Ally Matthan, one of the best recognized perfumers of India from TedX Talks
