Rakhi Gupta (b. 12 June 1986) from Bareilly, Uttar Pradesh, created an art piece 40 in long – a sari made  of soap (water-soluble sodium and potassium salt of fatty acids), starting on 8 May and completing it on 17 June 2017. Using 1 litre liquid soap and 0.5 kg of soap bar, the pallu of the sari is neatly carved with soap. The soap sari draped beautifully.
