A short history about Sarees!

A saree or sari is a beautiful Indian garment. This is a traditional Indian garment wore in different parts of the country. It is an unstitched drape that may vary from 5 to 9 meters long and can be from 700 millimeters to 1200 millimeters in width. Saris are usually worn as an essential outfit traditionally and are still the best choice for any occasion and events.

Sarees are also listed as a formal wear and obviously can be carried around as a casual as well as party wear. The way traditional saris are worn is by tying it around petticoat, which is usually an A-line skirt and strings to tighten or loosen it from the waist. The end strip of the saree is known as a Pallu and is usually more than a meter long. Pallu are the most intricate part of the saree since it is one part which is not wrapped and designs can easily be visible.

Origin of a Saree

‘Saree’ or ‘Sari’ has been taken from the word ‘Sati’. Sati means a strip of cloth. People in India were well versed with sewing and weaving but still preferred clothing that could be draped around the body, like- Saree and Dhoti. The reason for it was the hot climate of the country.

Indian people preferred unstitched clothing during Indus civilization. They would take a cloth and wrap around the waist and remaining fabric would be used to drape other parts in a comfortable manner.
