Navratri 2022 Day 8 color is Peacock green. The color represents compassion and uniqueness. Goddess Durga’s Eighth avatar, Maa Mahagauri, is worshipped on the eighth day of Navratri. Mahagauri means extremely bright, clean complexioned, with a shine like a moon. (Mahā, means great; Gaurī means bright)
Navratri is one of the few festivals that is celebrated all across India with equal devotion. This year, Navratri is celebrated from September 26 to October 5. The ten-day festival worships Goddess Shakti or Goddess Durga. Navratri, literally translating to nine nights, worships the nine avatars of Goddess Durga each day of the festival. The nine avatars are – Maa Shailputri, Maa Brahmcharini, Maa Chandraghanta, Maa Kushmanda, Maa Skandmata, Maa Katyayani, Maa Kaalratri, Maa Mahagauri, and Maa Siddhidatri. Each day is ascribed to a specific color and is associated with one form of Goddess Durga. Those who celebrate Navratri dress up in the specific color of the day and prepare foods in the same color and offer it to the goddess as the prasad. Here is the list of Navratri colors if you are looking to celebrate.

This beautiful and elegant peacock green saree is made with Paithani silk. It has peacock meenakari motidfs all over, Paithani weave pallu, and a red Kadiyal short border with Kuttu interlock. Isn’t it gorgeous? I paired it with my gold ram Parivar kasu necklace from my wedding. I bought the saree from Varnavastram and also got the blouse stitched from them. The blouse fits me perfectly, highly recommend them!
Paithani Silk Saree
Paithani sarees are hand-crafted with some of the finest silk material. The silk yarns are sourced from Bangalore or Mysore, and the zari threads are sourced from Gujarat. The preparation of silk and zari, dyeing, and weaving, are all carried out in the town of Paithan, Maharashtra, near Aurangabad, Maharastra, India.
Paithani uses the ancient technique of tapestry where multiple threads of different colors along with gold and silver are woven together to form a fascinating piece of silk. The motifs of the sarees are created by interlocking and tying the colored threads to the warp of the loom. In fact, even if you look at the reverse side of the saree, it will look as gorgeous as the front side.
