Saree – # the global attire

Saree – # the global attire

November 08, 2018

Once hailed Indian attire, Saree which had been in a lull  for a while is back in vogue again. The comeback with revival of its lost charm can not only be felt in India but across the globe. There exists cultural variation to the drape among various regions in India itself, however the well known drape is the ‘Navi’ drape where a portion of the saree is fastened to the in-skirt, another is pleated and tucked in the center between the legs while the rest of the saree goes around to cover the bosom running over the shoulder. This is most common form of saree that is known to the population as a whole.

There is a lot of resources that talk about our cherished culture and heritage, saree is one among them. It originated during the Mesapatomian civilization then grew significantly better in taste and time post the British rule. Today the love for sarees, most importantly handloom and handmade can be seen among educated women who preferred western wear. More and more women these days appreciate the vitality and elegance this six yard fabric exudes.  Factoring in the plethora of designer blouses, knowledge of various handmade clothing like ikkat, bengal cotton, pen kalamkari and the like, saree has become a versatile attire for the working women.

Today, this symbol of modesty once celebrated has risen to the level where it is globally appreciated by eminent women. South Korean First Lady Kim Jung-sook sported a saree for the diwali celebrations at Ayodhya –  She “soon became the toast of the pilgrim town on Tuesday” quoted The Hindu.
