Weekly Photo Challenge – Color

For this week’s photo challenge, I decided to show the use of colour on Indian fabrics. Traditionally the zari brocade used on fabrics was made using gold and silver threads. Nowadays only metallic threads mimicking gold and silver are used. Indians revel in color, especially during celebrations and these bright, intricately decorated garments are always worn during weddings. Though Western outfits are extremely popular and are almost the norm in bigger cities, traditional Indian garments never lose their appeal. The diverse range of colors and intricate craftsmanship make them objects of desire, often passed from one generation to another.
