Sadakalo's Ekushey Collection
Ekushey February is a day we celebrate our linguistic freedom and commemorate the martyrs of the language movement with the expression of patriotism by joining the ritualistic slow procession, the Probhat Pheri, at the Shahid Minar on the morning of February 21 -- observing a crucial mark on the history of Bangladesh.
The day is dedicated to espousing love for our country and its people by indulging in the spirit of struggle and freedom adorned around black and white; colours that symbolise the struggle and mourning against oppression and the victory of the Bengali nation.
On the occasion of 21 February, Sadakalo is launching its Ekushey Collection comprising of exclusive black and white wear for men, women and children in prints of Bengali alphabets, patriotic quotes, songs, verses and more. Much of the Ekushey Collection has been crafted on cotton for the comfort of their customers, along with options of other fabrics such as silk and half silk.
