Welcome Friends,
  • Indian Sarees
    • A saree or sari[26][27] is a female garment in the Indian subcontinent.[28] A sari is a strip of unstitched cloth, ranging from four to nine meters in length, that is draped over the body in various styles. These include: Sambalpuri Saree from East, Mysore silk and Ilkal of Karnataka and, Kanchipuram of Tamil Nadu from South, Paithani from West and Banarasi from North among others.[29] The most common style is for the sari to be wrapped around the waist, with one end then draped over the shoulder baring the midriff.[28] The sari is usually worn over a petticoat.[30] Blouse may be "backless" or of a halter neck style. These are usually more dressy with a lot of embellishments such as mirrors or embroidery and may be worn on special occasions. Women in the armed forces, when wearing a sari uniform, don a half-sleeve shirt tucked in at the waist. Teenage girls wear half-sarees, a three piece set consisting of a langa, a choli and a stole wrapped over it like a saree. Women usually wear full sarees. Indian wedding saris are typically red or pink, a tradition that goes back to India's pre-modern history.[31] Saris are usually known with different names in different places. In Kerala, white saris with golden border, are known as kavanis and are worn on special occasions. A simple white sari, worn as a daily wear, is called a mundu. Saris are called pudavai in Tamil Nadu. In Karnataka, saris are called Seere.[32] The traditional production of handloom sarees is important to economic development in rural communities.[33] Here is the A-Z list of the traditional saree arts absolute classics, which are must-haves in any ethnic wardrobe collection.
