Kosa Silk has been very close to our hearts because Pallavi's grandfather was a Kosa Silk weaver from the Bhandara region of Vidarbha. He was a master weaver and used to weave gorgeous Kosa silk sarees and fabrics! Pallavi has seen the hardships when he used to keep weaving in the dim light of the lamp because he has to complete weaving the saree before the next day! "He taught me the real meaning of passion," says Pallavi!
