TRADITIONAL WEAR
The Indian sari

While the exact origin of the saree is not known, yet researches have shown existence of sarees way back in 3000 BC in the Indus Valley civilization. Indian Saree is the most popular and traditional wear appreciated by the whole world. Because of its total simplicity and practical comfort, combined with the sense of luxury and sense of sexuality a woman experiences, the sari has kept its popularity throughout the centuries. There is an ageless and mystique charm in the luxuriant folds of the saree lending it an air of elegance and contemporary touch.

The saree is one of the most common and oldest forms of dress for women in India and it continues to be the most popular dress worn by Indian women. The saree is a long rectangular shaped strip of unstitched cloth, ranging from 5 to 9 yards in length.

The style, colour and texture of this cloth varies and it might be made from cotton, silk or one of the several man-made materials. The most expensive woven saree is in silk. The designs may reflect regional cultures such as the "Kanjivarams" from the south or Muga silks from the east.

The saree has an age old charm and will remain so because it is not cut or stitched for a particular size. The saree can fit any size and if worn properly can accentuate the woman's curves. The variety of designs, drapes, fabrics, and colours in sarees reveal a unique blending of religious and cultural influences of India.

Inspite of the emergence of various western wear and other dresses in the Indian market, the saree still remains the most favoured dress of Indian women. No other dress can show grace, elegance and dignity as much as a sari can to any woman who wears it.

Sarees are the ultimate reflection of Indian tradition and culture. Available in different colors, fabrics and designs, sarees enhance the look of every woman. However a saree is incomplete without certain accessories. Blouse and petticoat are absolute necessities when it comes to wearing a saree. The blouse should be of the same color or print of the saree. Many opt for mix and match combinations as well. A petticoat should be however exactly of the same color as the saree so that it complements the look of the saree. A brooch is another accessory which is required to hold the pleats of the saree in place with the blouse.
