A unique feature of the Arani Silk fabric is the innovative use of the half half saree. A half half Arani Silk Saree would have one colour or design on one half of the saree and the remaining half would have one or more colours, designs, patterns or motifs, border and pallu, with each half adorned differently. In other words they would have border and pallu on opposite ends of one side for the same fabric to be worn on two occasions differently.
