A beautiful orange and pink Linen Saree has been here for the drape.

The Two Pleat Drape

This is a traditional drape, but with a cool new twist! It’s a quick fix when you are rushing out but still want to wear a saree. Instead of making multiple pleats, make two broad pleats, tuck them in the center. Leave the pallu a little longer than usual, make pleats, drape it over your shoulder and bring the longer side over your arm for a cool, fuss-free look. We chose a lime green Linen Saree for this look.
