                                                                  The saree – fabric for any occasion

The Indian saree was traditional attire till yesterday. Today it is much explored and experimented with as a fabric to reach new heights in fashion appeal.

The many versions of the Indian saree

Saris are worn in India, from the plain, simple, coloured, adorned cotton, silk blends worn by many women in regular use, to the much exclusive decorated silks with finery and additive features. Sarees serve very well for fashion and special wear during weddings, parties, festivals, social invites.

The tremendous variety in fabrics for the saree

India has many handloom weaving, dyeing and printing locations of ethnic excellence. The craftsmanship and finish of the traditional handloom is unmatched by any other means of producing cloth. Pure Silks have a rich look, provide airy comfort and the exclusiveness in price compared to other fabrics. There is a whole range of different types of silk like Muga, Eri, Endi, Mulberry, Tussar, Kora, Katan and others with their own features. Cottons are from fine to the coarse and most suitable for summer or hot weather conditions and for long continuous spells of wearing. Light in weight, very airy, comfortable, cottons come in light shades and medium coloured hues and are preferred for casual outings, office, daily wear since they are not as costly. Art silks like georgette, chiffon, crepe silk, polyester, nylon, rayon etc. are good substitutes for the costly silks. Linen and jute, fabric blends like sico, jute ghicha silk, linen cotton etc. are all fabric materials.
