  • The journey of sarees began alongside the Indus
    valley civilization around 2800 BC and we still
    use the dyes used then namely Indigo, lac,
    turmeric etc.

  • A saree is a long piece of cloth in a variety of
    fabric with many different prints, patterns and
    colours that is worn around the entire body in a
    particular way. The length of the saree varies
    from 6 yards to 9 yards depending on various
    factors like age, occasion and climate.
  • Sarees are accompanied by parkars/ pavada in the
    bottom and a choli /ravikai / blouse in the top.
    A saree has been such an integral part of our
    culture that even today it is a must have in our
    wardrobe.
  • Saree as such has undergone various changes in
    terms of production, weaving, type of prints and
    the way it is worn. We are in an era where
    stitched readymade sarees are available and yet
    draping a saree in the traditional way and
    mastering it is still revered as a skill.

  • The journey of sarees began alongside the Indus
    valley civilization around 2800 BC and we still
    use the dyes used then namely Indigo, lac,
    turmeric etc. Earliest records of cotton and silk
    are also found 5000 years ago indicating how well
    established this culture was. Literary works like
    Kadambari by Banabhatta and Silapathikaram by
    Ilangoadigal talk in detail about sarees.
  • This is just an example, there are many literary
    works that stand as a proof for the wide use of
    saree by women from time immemorial. Like the
    saree, the choli or ravikai or blouse has also
    undergone a variety of changes from the way it is
    worn and tied.
  • The Dharmasastra and the Natya shastra are said
    to have had difference of opinion about how the
    saree is draped in terms of exposing the midriff.
