13th July ’17: How not to buy a sari

Welcome to Thursday, Colour Filers.

Do you have a colour that is strongly connected to laughter? In my gap year in India, my friend Alice and I went to buy saris (when in India 🇮🇳…). I went for a plain, forest green cotton one with gold and red braid borders. When we got back to the orphanage where we were working, the children rolled about on the floor, laughing uncontrollably: unaware of convention, we’d apparently chosen saris that grannies wear. Whenever I see green, gold and red/cerise (like in this fabric at @insiderdealingsw4 and this old school poster that makes me think of bottled biology specimens and dissecting bulls’ eyes), I think of those children cracking up until they cried. It was very funny. Have a great day and I’ll see you on the other side.
