"Sari" is like a complex that cannot be abandoned in the hearts of Indian women, interpreting their understanding and pursuit of aesthetics and color. It is a silk-based "clothing" with piping on the sides and embroidery on it.
Wandering in the streets and alleys of South Asia, the most unforgettable thing is the graceful image of a beautiful woman wearing a sari passing by from time to time. The red dot on the forehead, the deep eyes, the slightly brown skin, and the light and elegant "Sari" dress, are full of style and charm.
Sarees are usually worn over an ankle-length petticoat, forming a tube skirt from the waist to the heel, with the end hem falling over the left or right shoulder. Each region of India has its own unique style of sarees, different regional cultures, and different embedded fabrics and weaving styles.
The first is Chikan. Chikan is a traditional embroidery technique in the Lucknow region of India. Legend has it that it was invented by the beautiful wife of Mughal emperor Jahangir. Geometric images such as jasmine, roses and elephants are the main elements. Now, Chikan embroidery is not limited to white fabrics and patterns. Embroidering colorful patterns on cotton, silk, chiffon and other fabrics has a different kind of elegant and simple beauty.
Next is the Banarasi, which is woven from silk and is one of the finest sarees in India. The styles of Banarsi sarees include: Tant, Jamdani, Tanchoi and Shalu, where Jamdani sarees are cotton fabrics originating from Bangladesh with delicate colorful stripes and patterns.
The third is Paithani, named after the Paithan region of Maharashtra, the sarees are hand-woven from fine silk and considered to be the most expensive sarees in Maharashtra. Featuring diamond trim and a peacock design.
The fourth is Kota Doria. Kota is a Rajasthani aristocratic embroidery method. In the early days, gold thread was used to embroider on silk. Each set of gota embroidery on a saree has a specific theme inspired by elements such as flowers, birds or animals, peacocks, parrots, elephants, etc. in nature. Kota Doria gives a rich and heavy gorgeous texture.
