The Indian Saree is a garment from ancient times that has over the passage of time been much explored and experimented with, to transform from a traditional attire of need to a fashion fabric of appeal. Sensuality, charm & allure on display, the Indian Saree has always struck right note when it comes to fashion and style. Heritage garment, the nation’s pride, garment once traditional, has today reached the level of fashion statement.
Many types of saris are worn in India. From the plain, simple coloured and lightly adorned cotton and silk blends worn by many women in their daily routine, to the jazzy stylish heavily decorated silks with all sorts of finery and additive features known as fashion and special wear meant for exclusive occasions such as weddings, grand parties or social invites. Saree fabric material could be cotton, silk, jute, nylon, rayon, Georgette, chiffon, satin etc. or blends. There is no dearth of traditional varieties and modern art silks and current tastes have encouraged brilliant fusion experiments of the two to evolve a new range of splendid never-before-seen fabrics having trending designs and patterns incorporated in the conventional handloom weaves.
India has many handloom weaving, dyeing and printing locations of ethnic excellence in the four corners of the country. Side by side and also overwhelming it is the modern mass production device called the power loom which though quick serving and time saving cannot have the craftsmanship and finish of the traditional handloom. Silks have always been a favorite with women because of the rich look, airy comfort and the exclusiveness in price compared to other fabrics.
Especially costly pure silk sarees that range from 15000 rupees onwards to touch a lakh and above, are jealously guarded, worn with caution and care exercised at every step, to be worn for grand exclusive occasions only. Cottons are preferred 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 very preferred for casual outings, office, daily wear since they are not as costly as silks. Notable places like Narayanpet, Pochampally, Uppada, Venkatagiri, Rasipuram, Arani, Coimbatore have their own brands of silk fabrics in the Southern part of India. The Northern part has Banaras, Chanderi, Kota, Chattisgarh, Bhagalpur and others. Rajasthan and Gujarat in the West, with Eastern Orissa, West Bengal and the North Eastern belt. All these have traditionally evolved their individual styles and existed harmoniously for a long time. Inspiring breath-taking weaves of good texture, fine thread counts, beautiful patterns and motifs displayed in a myriad of colours have seamlessly included the modern saree-wearer’s likes and preferences in new colourshades, embellishments on the saree, abstract and fancy prints, without sacrificing the essence of the ethnic quality. There is a healthy mix even of different regions wherein the saree could have the attractive and appealing features of different traditional styles.
