In the vast realm of social media, the rise of influencers has been nothing short of spectacular. From makeup gurus to fashionistas, influencers have taken over our screens, shaping our opinions and influencing our purchasing decisions. Among these influencers, the saree goddesses reign supreme—or so we thought.
I recently had a conversation with a self-proclaimed saree influencer, and what I discovered shattered the illusion I had been living under. As it turns out, many of these so-called influencers receive sarees for free, courtesy of naïve sellers who fall for their charm. Yes, you read that right: they don’t pay a dime for those exquisite handloom creations that they flaunt on Instagram. It seems like the sellers are the ones who truly need our sympathy.
But wait, there’s more! These influencers, who have amassed a massive following thanks to the mysterious workings of the Instagram algorithm and the loyalty of their unquestioning followers, have little to no knowledge about handloom sarees. Their expertise lies in taking the perfect selfie, not in understanding the intricacies of weaving or the cultural significance of each thread.
Let’s face it—these influencers are not philanthropists. Just because they gained fame on social media doesn’t mean they’re doing any charity work. In fact, some of them have the audacity to reach out to brands directly and demand payment for promoting their sarees. Money talks, my dear saree lovers, and you’re the ones footing the bill.
So, it’s time to open our eyes and see through the influence drama. Instead of blindly following these self-proclaimed saree experts, let’s make our own choices. Buy the sarees that truly resonate with you, not the ones endorsed by Instagram stars who have no real connection to the craft.
In this era of inflated egos and manipulated online personas, there are brands like “Sanskriti Cuttack” that choose not to engage in promotion or advertisement with these so-called influencers. They rely on the quality and craftsmanship of their sarees to speak for themselves. By supporting brands like Sanskriti Cuttack, we promote authenticity and value the true essence of handloom.
Dear saree lovers, it’s time to wake up and take charge of our choices. Let’s not allow ourselves to be swayed by the influence of those who don’t truly understand the art and heritage of handloom sarees. Instead, let’s support the brands and artisans who pour their hearts into every intricate design and weave.
Remember, the power lies in your hands, not in the hands of those who manipulate the online world for their own gain. So, jaago grahak jaago—awaken, consumers, awaken! Choose wisely, buy thoughtfully, and let the real beauty of handloom sarees shine through the noise of influence.
In conclusion, let’s break free from the influence of saree goddesses who know little about the craft they claim to represent. Don’t let their glamorized illusions cloud your judgment. Embrace the true spirit of handloom sarees and support brands that deserve recognition. It’s time to reclaim our choices and celebrate the artisans who bring sarees to life.
