additional information

This ethnic attire’s name is derived from the Sanskrit word ‘Angraksaka’ which means protection to the body. Silk work over a brocade fabric, such accoutrements were often made for members of a royal family. The maroon and gold colour combinations indefinitely gives it a regal look.
