The Up and Coming on Social Media

Visit www.jhumoor.com to view our collection of exclusive sarees from Bengal.

Instagram has never been more happening than it is now. The number of people coming together to celebrate fashion, lifestyle and art is nothing short of phenomenal. Our monthly magazine reads for a new look or fashion trend has been replaced by a simple scrolling on our phones anytime we feel like looking for inspiration.

Needless to say, we also find inspiration for our stories, sarees and brand ideas on Instagram. Recently we had the good fortune of reaching out to multiple popular faces on the platform celebrating art and fashion.

Here is a (very subjective) list of Instagram influencers who we feel you should definitely take a look at:

  1. Beauty_box ( http://www.instagram.com/@daraksha_khan5 ): We loved it when Jacqueline was sultry hot in her Bengal “Laal Paad” saree on Badshah’s video “Genda Phool”. Daraksha’s recreation in her buty based silk saree in red and white is fairly accurate: both in her attire, look and style. It takes a special talent and beauty to recreate Jacqueline and add to it her own sweet vibe. A huge shoutout!!

2. Anjuma Akhtar ( http://www.instagram.com/anjuma_akhtar): We all love fairy tales. We have grown up pretending of being in one and shall live our lives dreaming of one. That is why Anjuma’s posts hold such a special place in our hearts. She manages to maintain a fairy tale, dreamy, magic world vibe across all her posts.

3. Sayantani ( https://www.instagram.com/sayantanipurkayastha/ ): We Bengalis love mishti. In fact, such is our love for sweets that our State Government decided to open up Mishti dokaans over the lockdown along with grocery stores and other “essential commodities”. Another thing we love is how much Sayantani reminds us of our favourite “mishti”. Such a sweet girl with amazing content. We love her video of how she has draped our beloved Six yard in different ways. Check it out here: https://www.instagram.com/p/CAQMZCjg6eW/

4. Kasturima Sonowal (https://www.instagram.com/kasturi_sonowal_/) : Her popularity can probably be gauged seeing as people have made multiple fake accounts of her page on Instagram. Not everyone can pull off an Instargram page based purely on homegrown style. Her account has no fancy high budget shoots or glitzy edits. Its all simply phone shots of her with a lot of unabashed style and attitude, which is probably why we love her a lot! More power to you, girl!

5. The Shutter Bug (https://www.instagram.com/ishitadatta91/): Ishita is a genuine example of what it means to be a Bengali beauty. She is subtle, confident and so gorgeous! But what we absolutely adore about her Instagram account is the variety and eccentricity of the sarees she has sported on her page: from bright, artsy prints to plain and simple chiffons, she knows how to carry it all with poise.

6. Priyashree Mukherjee (https://www.instagram.com/priyashree_mukherjee/): Only a few instagram accounts are “elegant and sober” and yet popular. In a world full of glam, sham and flash, Priyashree has shown that simplicity and elegance has its own special niche. Totally a Jhumoor kind of girl. 🙂

7. Soumya Kirtaniya (https://www.instagram.com/soumyakirtaniya/): Her bio on her account introduces her as a “Bohemian soul”. You scroll down to see nothing less. She has a wide variety of sarees on her page styled with such beauty and grace. What stands out is her almost Bohemian styling of colourful and vivid jewellery emboldended by her smoky eyes. You know a professional when you see one here.

That’s all for now, people. We shall shortly be posting another list of talented fashion and lifestyle influencers on Instagram that we love. Keep following us for more amazing content.

CoronaVirus VS Jhumoor

Awareness on Corona Virus and COVID-19

What is Coronavirus?

Corona virus is a global pandemic today, referred to the group of viruses commonly found in bats.

What is COVID-19?

 COVID-19 is a particular coronavirus strain that has has steadily spread across humans in the world since it originated in the Wuhan city in China. Most nations of World including INDIA- which having second highest population in the World are now on partial or total lockdown in an effort to contain the virus.

The virus is increasingly having negative impact on entire human race. It results in drastic health issues for the affected person and his/her near and dear ones.

Role of Women in this situation

Women of the house are the backbone of a home. It is therefore extremely important for all women to stay cautious. It is our exhortation to all our followers to take precautions against the particular virus very seriously.

Science is continuously investigating on the virus but at present prevention is only the cure. We have to narrow our social interaction and keep ourselves within the house. We should move out of the house when necessary only.

It therefore becomes even more important for women to stay healthy, and encourage all family members to stay healthy too. We at Jhumoor understand the situation and recommend you to keep yourself , your family and surroundings clean and hygienic, intake foods that would boost the immunity of yourself and your near and dear ones and keep your body strong and healthy by regular exercising, yoga and breathing exercises.

Does this mean the end of entertainment and shopping?

Due to a lockdown in most areas, offline shopping is now not possible. The pandemic rages on and social distancing has most of us housebound, therefore shopping for a saree at a store feels like a distant dream.

But there is a silver lining for women, we have taken a initiative to continue our online services at www.jhumoor.com. Though delivery might be a little delayed to due continuous lockdowns in certain areas, we promise a guaranteed (although it might be delayed) delivery. Be rest assured, there are really some sweet deals we have rounded up for the shopaholics to shop while self-isolating.

SAREE STYLES THAT ARE CATCHING EYEBALLS!

“Pretty bird, you just crossed my way”. We absolutely love how Shwetha has styled this flowy linen saree in a bold and free expression of her own.

This deep colour looks gorgeous in a smooth contrast with the rusty tin background. We also can’t stop staring at those dreamcatcher earrings she’s paired it with.

We always thought batik was the original graffiti, but Priya has just proved it now. That saree looks like it was made to be clicked in front of that wall.

Who would have thought that a silk saree and a cowboy hat could go together. This girl never ceases to surprise.

A golden and green silk saree can’t go wrong with golden jewellery. Here’s Vani to prove it.

Bright yellow silk, small golden buty and a gleeful spirit under a blue sky in the streets of Goa. This look gives us such a spring feel.

We love this handloom saree in a homelyvibe. A soft, warm & comfortable look for a sober and simple saree. we love how cute Shrestha has made this style!

USE OF SHOPPING BAGS

10 Advantages Of Using Cloth Shopping Bags
Instead Of Plastic Ones
.

Amid growing concerns about plastic pollution, ‘single use’ plastic bags are being banned. The bags in question are those singlet-shaped ones that are made of very thin plastic.

3 reasons stop using
plastic shopping bags

  1. It is almost always made from fossil gas and oil, which damages the environment
  2. Pollutes our common home
  3. It is dangerous for our wildlife, oceans and waterways as they do not decompose and clog

Why use cloth
shopping bags

Cloth shopping bags avoid the pollution problems that come with plastic. Bags made from natural materials can eventually break down and return to the soil.

How to use
cloth shopping bags

  1. They are sturdier, stronger, they last longer and are definitely prettier on the eyes!

We at Jhumoor always recommend using cloth bags. Whats more? All our orders go wrapped in cloth rather than plastic as being used by major E-commerce companies like Amazon, Flipkart and the other biggies! Use http://www.jhumoor.com to shop for sarees online and save the environment.

How to keep your saree clean and new for a long time!

Foods stains on sarees will no more be a problem

Food stains on white sarees are inevitable. How do we get rid of them?

  1. Wet the stain areas with water and apply a thick coat of white toothpaste over the stains on both sides of the fabric.
  2. Hang the saree to dry completely and then wash off the toothpaste.
  3. Repeat the process until the stain vanishes.
  4. Most oil, turmeric and other food stains can be completely removed from white clothes in this manner, without causing any discoloration to the fabric.
  5. Use a toothpaste containing bleach for better effect.
Restore old Silk Sarees to their new condition
  1. Make a dilute solution of distilled white vinegar and lukewarm water in a clean bucket (Use 1 tablespoon of vinegar for every litre of water). Soak the saree thoroughly in the vinegar solution for 3-5 minutes.
  2. Remove the saree from the solution and rinse it thoroughly in cold, running water. Make sure that all of the vinegar and its smell are washed off. Squeeze the saree gently without twisting or wringing.
  3. Now dry the saree by wrapping it in a large, fluffy towel. You may need to fold the saree to fit it along the length of the towel. Gently roll and press the towel to remove excess water from the saree.
  4. Remove the saree from the towel and hang it to dry completely. Do not hang it in direct sunlight, as it may cause some discoloration. Silk sarees dry very quickly, and once dry, the lost shine of the saree may be restored.
  5. If the saree needs ironing, then don’t wait for it to dry fully. When still damp, iron it on the inside or using the ‘silk’ setting on the iron. It is always advisable to spot test a small, hidden area of the saree before ironing it completely.

Caution: Never use a machine dryer to dry a silk saree. The dry, intense heat from the dryer can ruin the silk irreversibly.

Soften brand new Tant and Jamdani Sarees to remove the stiffness
  1. Steam iron the saree. Remember to use the correct setting in your iron based on the saree fabric.
  2. Soak the saree in cold water for 30 minutes. Then rinse, dry and steam iron the saree to remove all traces of starch.
  3. For heavily starched sarees, add half a cup of distilled white vinegar to a bucket of cold water and soak the saree in it for 30 minutes. Then rinse, dry and steam iron the saree. It is now soft and starch-free!
Lipstick stains on sarees are no longer a problem
  1. Quick action is the best way to remove the stain. Place the stain area of the saree on a white tissue paper, with the stain side down.
  2. Dab the stain with a mild soap, using a clean white cloth. Let the soap sit on the stain for 10 minutes.
  3. Press the stain area with a clean white cloth. The lipstick and soap will seep into the paper towel underneath. Now replace the paper towel quickly. If not, the lipstick will spread on it, and may stain the saree back. Repeat this as long as the lipstick seeps into the paper towel.
  4. Rinse and wash the saree as you would normally do, in cold water.
  5. If some stain remains, repeat steps 2-4.
  6. Dry the saree only after the stain is fully gone.

HOPE THIS HELPS KEEP YOUR SAREES BEAUTIFUL AND GORGEOUS AS YOU FOREVER!
