Traditional prints on the Trendy Indian Skirt

The origin of the Indian Skirt

When the Indian Skirt borrowed from the Western Skirt and adapted it to the Indian situation, little did anybody imagine that the new look long skirt or maxi skirt would take the market by storm and that too, to such an extent. The Indian version of the skirt has gone down well with Indian women. Not restricted to a length close to the knees like the western skirt, the Indian skirt is a long flowing drape from waist downwards to just above feet level. Suits tradition and looks trendy.

Endearing features of the Indian skirt

The skirt or more likely the popular skirt has been lapped up by the Indian market mainly for its qualities as a fabric that serves as attire suited to Indian conditions, as fashion apparel with a wide range of styles, as quality handloom clothing with a lot of variety that goes well with a lot of combining tops. Starting from the waist and ending with a flaring bottom at the feet, it holds promise for all ages of women to look graceful if not shapely, seem tall where lacking height could be socially discomforting, add appeal if looking tall be a welcome virtue. Besides, the ease of movement and comfort as a dress, it allows the wearer to make a statement given the right combination or pairing top matched by appropriate accessories like stoles, belts, designer bags and footwear.

Dabu and the Indian skirt

Dabu Printing is an age old ethnic tradition that has stood the test of time as a unique way of dyeing and printing. Practised mostly in Rajasthan, it has churned out extraordinary fabrics of brilliant colours and mind-blowing designs that have left modern pundits dumbstruck.

It is an elaborate process that involves muddying the fabric and allowing it to go through several wash cycles. Dabu printed fabrics undergo a rigorous process that involves a lot of not so easily available and costlier natural dyes and vegetable pastes. Printed motifs like boota (corn stalk), surajmukhi or sunflower, animals and geometrical patterns are popular subjects. Pure cotton, pure silk, chiffon, crepe, georgette and super net saris are the different fabrics that have good results with Dabu prints.

The Indian skirt being a modern garment and Dabu being a traditional style of printing, it was a unique experiment to get stylish innovative prints that would woo the fashion world.
