    This one caught my attention due to the title. I didn’t know such a style existed. Never seen any lingayat wear a saree like this. Where did you get the info from?

      I did not do the video for this sari drape. But I believe that the people who made this video got it from this book …http://www.amazon.com/Saris-Illustrated-Guide-Indian-Draping/dp/0966149610….
      I also have this book and a lot of the sari drapes that I personally demonstrate are from there.
      In the book the author may say, that it is a very old drape and she her self only saw a few older women wearing it. I know that a lot of the drapes listed in the book are no longer currently used.
      I do not find it a very authoritative book as far as sari history goes because she is a foreigner and a lot of her ideas, are really just her ideas. But she gives a lot of information on how to drape a sari so it is a good book that way.
      Thank you for your comment 🙂
