Leather Story

Well, I am totally against the animal killing and using their leather but yes we get leather today in synthetic form and chemically being made.Synthetic-tanned leather is tanned using aromatic plymers such as the Novolac or Neradol types (syntans, contraction for synthetic tannins). Melamine and other amino-functional resins fall into this category as well, and they provide the filling that modern leathers often require.DSC_0053

When it comes to styling, I like experimenting with my style. It gives more androgynous look when we wear a Black leather jacket, but I paired it with my leather skirt to give it more vulnerable and feminine look.The white turtle neck , I am wearing is a blend of cotton and wool usually worn  for  winters.

As winter is coming to and end , I wanted to post something on winter and what can more good than this. I love leather jackets to the core as it gives you more sleek and stylish look rather it be a brunch look or an evening dinner.

Winter is my favourite season of all because I can layer up with the fall collection and wear leg warmers and long boots making me look more chic and beautiful.

And as black is my favourite color whether it be pitch black, night black or shine black. The leather I am wearing has a fine suede texture which makes it look more elegant and real.DSC_0042

CLOSET travels JODHPUR

 

DSC_0080Mehrangarh Fort stands a hundred feet in splendor on a perpendicular cliff, four hundred feet above the sky line of Jodhpur. Burnished red sand stone, imposing, invincible and yet with a strange haunting beauty that beckons . Much has been written about the Citadel of the Sun, for truly, it is one of the most impressive in all Rajasthan. So colossal are its proportions that Rudyard Kipling called it “ the work of giants”. Today, it is acknowledged as one of the best preserved fort in India.

Mehrangarh Fort, Jodhpur is one of the largest forts in forts. It is also the most magnificent fort in Jodhpur, infact, in the whole Rajasthan. The fort is amongst the popular tourist places in India. It is situated on a 150 m high hill. It was founded by Rao Jodha in 1459. The Mehrangarh Fort can be reached from the city, 5 kms below, through a circular road.DSC_0084DSC_0734

Seven gates have to be crossed to reach the fort. The gates still bear the marks of the various battles fought in the bygone era. Its second gate still stands witness to canon ball hits by attacking armies of Jaipur during wars. One of the gates is Jayapol, meaning victory. It was built by Maharaja Man Singh to commemorate his victories over Jaipur and Bikaner armies. Another gate, Fattehpol, again meaning victory, was built by Maharaja Ajit Singh as a celebration for defeating the Mughals.DSC_0076 DSC_0696

Other attractions of Mehrangarh Fort, Rajasthan include several palaces inside the fort, with their sprawling and huge courtyards. One of the fort’s palaces, The Moti Mahal or the Pearl Palace, has the royal throne of Jodhpur, the Sringar Chowki. The fort also has galleries, temples, etc. To the left of the Mehrangarh Fort is the Chhatri of a soldier, Kirat Singh Soda. It is the spot where he fell while defending the fort against the armies of Amber.DSC_0054

The Mehrangarh Fort, with its beauty, is the living proof of the hard work and skill of the Jodhpuri sculptors.

The most interesting thing , I like about Rajasthan is their people and their attire. They have their own style of dress sense. As you can see in the above picture an old man with red turban has a style with simplicity.

And if you’re planning to visit the fort then you have to keep these things in mind.
