| Today, while browsing BBC, I learnt that Chantal Boulanger-Maloney died earlier this year.|
She was an early admirer of Kamat's Potpourri (that's how I'd interacted with her) and great friend of India. Goddesses in Indian culture fascinated her and she spent may years in India studying temples, women, and especially sarees.
In her last years she worked to establish a "Museum of Unstitched Cloth" exhibiting such attire as turbans, lungi (mundu), dhoti, and of course varieties of sarees.
