It's raining cats and dogs outside but at home it is raining hot tea and pakodas ! Sipping my tea , enjoying the peacocks dance through my glass door , this is what I call luxury ! Time , is the most precious thing in life and how ironical , the so called richest people have the least of it !

In this wet and humid weather , you want the comfort of a light weight fabric which also dries very quickly and one such option is a 'mixed chiffon' fabric. Chiffon comes from the French word which means a cloth or rag. Chiffon was initially made from silk thread but after the introduction of polyester in 1958 , the polyester varieties of chiffon became very popular due to its durability and economical viability.
