                                                      The Saree – getting to be pricey and exclusive

The Indian saree traditional attire till yesterday, is today a much explored and experimented with fabric, that has reached new heights in fashion appeal.

The many versions of the Indian saree

Saris are worn by most women 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 regular wear as well as for fashion and special wear during weddings, parties, festivals, social invites.

The tremendous variety in fabrics for the saree

India has handloom weaving, dyeing and printing locations of ethnic excellence from North to South, East to West. The craftsmanship and finesse observed in the manufacture of traditional handlooms is missing in many other means of producing cloth. Pure Silks provide a rich look & feel, are comfortable and exclusive in price compared to other fabrics. Cottons are soft, smooth textured, mercerized to make it the most suitable fabric for summer or hot weather conditions and long continuous spells of wearing. Light in weight, airy, cosy to wear, with good affinity for colors, cottons come in light shades and medium coloured hues. They are preferred for most occasions from the casual outing, as office wear, and even for exclusive occasions because of their trappings, since they come in good designs and modern patterns, and 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.

A fabric with tremendous potential - the Saree

From the pure silks of Mysore, Dharmavaram, Kanjeevaram, Narayanpet, Pochampally, Uppada, Venkatagiri, Rasipuram, Arani, Coimbatore to the Northern Banarasi, Chanderi, Kota, Chattisgarh, Bhagalpuri from the rural belts of Rajasthan and Gujarat in the West, to Eastern Orissa, West Bengal and Bihar right upto the North Eastern belt, all have traditionally evolved, possess their individual styles and have co-existed harmoniously for a long time.

Inspiring weaves of good texture, of fine thread counts, with beautiful patterns and captivating motifs displayed in panoramic colours with the seamless inclusion of modern tastes in colour, design, adornments and fancy prints in the fine weave. There are fusion fabrics which are a mix in fabric varieties and styles.


The body with printed designs, woven patterns or plain setting, the border being broad, narrow, a thin line, in single or multicolor, with prints, embroidery or painted patch work and the pallu, with anything from printed designs, lovely embroidered motifs, special weaving, hand painting to other possibilities, together present a canvas of color and creativity, that arrests the attention.

A healthy mix of variety features or fusion of styles, such as the modern designer prints block printed on the body, attach borders having exquisite embroidery, the pallu portraying scenes from nature, epics, folk tales in eco-colours. IT has helped in designer abstract. Transfer of prints onto the fabric is a reality with the aid of technology.
