A fabric that has never ceased to amaze – the Indian saree

The possibilities of the Indian saree which was traditional attire till yesterday, and today a much applauded one in the fashion world, are never-ending, thanks to the devotion and dedication of traditional artisans, who time and again bring up something novel and inspiring.

The changing avatars of the Indian saree

Saris online are worn by most women in India. The permutations and combinations that the saree offers brings forth new ideas, new pairings to create innovative fresh-feel fabrics from time to time. From the plain, simple, coloured, adorned cotton and silk blends that are worn by many women in regular use, to the much exclusive decorated silks with finery and additive features that are exclusively donned. Sarees serve well for regular wear as well as for fashion and special wear during weddings, parties, festivals, social invites.

The wide and varied range of the Indian saree

Handloom weaving, dyeing and printing locations of ethnic excellence are across India, from North to South, East to West. The craftsmanship and finesse observed in the making 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 decorative features, 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.
