Karwa Chauth is an auspicious festival that celebrates the strong bond of love shared between married couples! It holds an important significance in Hindu and Sikh cultures. On the day of Karwa Chauth, married women keep a fast without even a sip of water, to pray for their husband’s long life and wellbeing. They break their fast at dusk, after worshipping the moon and goddess parvati. Much before the evening sets, they dress up in ethnic clothes and wear all the “solah” shringars – the 16 adornments that are a sacred symbol of married Hindu women.
When it comes to choosing Karwa Chauth outfits, a lot of married women prefer to wear their bridal lehenga or bridal suit that they dearly preserve for festive occasions like this one!

Festivals are all about flaunting the diverse (and unique!) textile arts of India! Gota patti is one of the many textile arts that are loved by women all over India. The zari ribbons (or “gota” as they call it) used in this kind of embellishment doesn’t come off as too blingy, that’s why it is so well-loved by modern Indian women with minimalistic taste.
Anchi Jaipur is a new-found brand that has a whole collection of traditional gota patti and chikankari ensembles.
