Six yards of fascination

If you happen to be born somewhere outside of south Asia then you probably have never heard of the word "Saree". A Saree a.k.a Sari is a female garment from the Indian subcontinent that consists of a drape varying 6 meters to 8 meters in length and 1 meter to 1.2 meters in breadth.

Typically wrapped around the waist with one end draped over the shoulder, baring the midriff but there are nearly 10 different and unique ways to drape a Saree. It is usually worn over a fitted upper garment commonly called as a blouse. The blouse has short sleeves and is usually cropped at the midriff.

A saree covers the right amount and exposes the right amount, its such a tease- Unknown

The word Saree has been derived from the Sanskrit word "Sati" meaning a strip of cloth. In the history of Indian clothing, the sari is traced back to the Indus Valley Civilization, which flourished during 2800–1800 BC around the northwestern part of the Indian subcontinent. Cotton was first cultivated and woven to make a saree and natural dyes used during that period are still in use, particularly indigo, lac, red madder and turmeric. Today Saree's are made from various different materials starting from silk to even gold (yeah, pure gold).

So what are you waiting for? Get a piece of history that you can wear with pride and grace today only.
