Sari

What Indian women proudly associate with is a Saree. A drape varying in length from 5 to 9 yards and 2 to 4 feet in breadth, so elegantly symbolises grace and feminity. It is regarded as a symbol of Indian culture & is a garment consisting of a length of cotton or silk draped around the body of women worn in India and Souther Asia.

Sari is now considered a fashion statement and has a big fan following. Saris go well with jewellery and different kinds of accessories that go along with it.


Sari has been worn by Indian women for centuries. As with its culture, India’s wardrobe has been influenced by vivid cultures over the years. The history of Indian saree dates back to the period of Indus Valley civilisation where archaeologists have found out artefacts suggesting this clothing being adorned by both men and women.

All over India, over the years this 5 yards piece of cloth has not only brought out the feminine grace of Indian women but also their artistic inclination. Imagine the hundreds of different ways of saree draping styles. This is art in itself. Each style is Unique, elegant and relates to a particular region of India. The most popular style of saree draping at present is the NIVI style.

Saris now come with modern designs suited to modern tastes. Bollywood has increased the popularity of saris across the world.

Saris are defined by the part of the country and the state where they are popular. For example, Kanjeevaram is popular in the South and comes from Kanchipuram in South India.


Similarly Pathai is popular in Maharashtra; Banarasi sari is made in Banaras (Varanasi). These are one of the finest saris in India.

Although , as a result of the intermingling of culture all over the world and most importantly due to access to more easy clothing options, Saree is not being worn by Indian women as often as in the past. Nevertheless, Saree continues to be an integral part of our culture. Indian women proudly wear it on important occasions, accessorising it beautifully.

Internationally too it has gained acceptance. Fashion divas all over now keep one in their closet.
