Sarees represent rich diversity of Incredible India: US Embassy


The US Deputy Chief of Mission (DCM) Mary Kay Carlson lauded the Indian traditional garment and said that they represent the culture and diversity of India.

After a year of ‘saree search’, DCM Carlson is celebrating India’s Independence Day with her collection of 16 sarees including Khadi and Handloom, ‘fabric that feels like freedom’. To her, sarees represent the rich diversity of Incredible India, tweeted the US Embassy on Friday.

In the video, DCM Carlson, who is draped in a saree, said, “I love sarees. I love the kick of the plaids, the fall and draping. I feel that if I am not going to have a difficult day at work, then wearing a saree feels better all day long.”

Carlson also recalled the 71st Independence Day celebration, wherein she desired to wear a saree but couldn’t out of fear of picking up a wrong one.

“I was afraid whether I would pick up a wrong one. So, we had an online contest called #SareeSearch. It was so much fun. It was so interesting to learn the rich textile heritage across this great nation,” Carlson added.

Further, she extolled the different type of textiles, having vibrant colours and said that Kanjivaram, Dupion, Jamdani and Tusser are her favourites.

“Most people are pleased to see their rich culture, especially the Khadi culture and its link to the Independence Day that is celebrated by all the people. The sarees, especially during Independence Day represent the vast culture, colour and diversity of this great country,” DCM Carlson said and signed off with a greeting, “Happy Independence Day”.
