I had this crepe stole with traditional Indian design printed all over it. It has many colours, but red was the background colour. It suited well with t-shirts, plain tunics.
Last year I saw this chiffon fabric. It had both orange and yellow shades on it. Because it looks like a well ripened mango, it is often called mango colour. These kind of colour combinations are quite common on silks[kanjeevaram].the most popular are-
Peacock neck[blue/green],tender mango leaf[maroon and green], fenugreek[golden yellow/red],onion[dark pink/cream],berry[nagapazham-violet /brown].
From this point of view, this tunic colour is mango.
A packet of red stones also was waiting to be used. A traditional Indian pattern was drawn for the yoke. A simple border, where these stones could be incorporated was drawn for the sleeves.
The pattern for sleeves-

The embroidery was worked with red silk and metallic threads.
