Torani’s festive range Ho-Jamalo gets its name from the Sindhi-language folk song of the same name. It was created from the colours that are part of the handicraft and textile traditions of the erstwhile Sindh region. The collection is very classic Torani, with chintz splashed over fine handwoven chanderi silks and mulmuls in the form of saris, blouses, lehenga sets, kaftans and suit sets and has a burst of florals, embroideries and textured fabrics in shades named ‘Bijli neel’, ‘sharbati mehroon’, ‘sabz hara’ and ‘surajmukhi’.
