Feb 5th 2020 at 1:39 AM

Indian sarees are adored by every woman no matter which part of the world she lives in. Traditional designs seamlessly blend Indian culture and heritage and produce a high fashion statement saree, which can be worn at any given occasion.

All over the country, a wide range of sarees can be explored, varying from state to state, region to region. Multicolour sarees, one with monochrome palettes like black sarees, white sarees, red sarees, dual-tone sarees, and ones with an accent of one colour over the other are just very few of the uncharted large ocean of sarees that can be found throughout the markets of India.

Traditional Indian sarees bring down a feeling of heritage and ancient history with themselves, which is what makes them extremely popular among women. A few such traditional sarees of India are described below which can be considered as the prized possessions in any woman's wardrobe. They are as follows :

Kanjeevaram saree - The evergreen and ever-classy Kanjeevaram saree is truly a visual delight. The elegance and grace a woman reflect after wearing a Kanjeevaram saree is unparalleled. The richness of the fabric of such sarees is worthy of the expensive price tag that comes along with it. Yes, a handwoven silk saree can be pretty expensive but completely reasonable as authentic Kanjeevaram sarees have gold threads in the embroidery and gold zari work. The exquisite technique of weaving a Kanjeevaram leads to a lighter weight of the drape despite being loaded with gold. A purely handmade saree can take up to 4 months to complete which requires skills and dedication to the work. Many brides, too, opt for wearing a Kanjeevaram saree at their wedding because of its grandeur and royal looks.

Bandhani saree - The Bandhani saree originates from the cultural roots of the state of Gujarat. It is also known as the Bandhej saree and worn by the folklore of Gujarati and Rajasthani women. The fabric of the saree is plucked at different places and then tied up known as a 'bandh'. This is what the saree derives its name from. Thereafter, it is dyed in various beautiful colours. A beautiful collection of such Bandhani sarees can be found in the streets of urban and rural Gujarat. Bright and flashy colours like sunshine yellow, red, orange and even darker colours like navy, violet, magenta are used to dye those sarees. An embroidered Bandhani saree can be worn at parties and festive events whereas the mutes ones like Jodhpuri or traditional Gujarati Bandhani are apt for regular wear.

Banarasi saree - A Banarasi style saree is definitely something every woman has worn at least once in her life. And why not? The versatility and opulence of a Banarasi saree make it impossible to resist. Crafted in the colourful town of Varanasi or Banaras, those sarees are well known for their zari and embroidery work. Katan silk, Shattir, Georgette and Organza saree constitute the four major fabrics used in Banarasi sarees. The delicate yet long-lasting work of golden and silver threads in such sarees is enough to catch anyone's eye. Banarasi sarees have been woven in handloom ever since ancient times and are adored by women even today. The brocade and zari work on a Banarasi saree makes it an ideal drape for all occasions including festivals and weddings.

Patola saree - Another famous attire from Gujarat is the highly cherished Patola saree. Pure silk sarees handwoven by the expert craftsmen of Patan have been the main source of attraction for women looking for authentic sarees. Extreme amounts of effort are put in by those workers in a very time-consuming process of weaving a patola saree. Depending on the length and intricacy of the patterns and designs on the saree, one drape can easily take anywhere between 6 months and a year to be complete! This is because the whole process of weaving requires a high level of skill, concentration and proficiency. They are weaved in such a way the saree can be worn either way and even the wearer cannot make out the difference. Vibrant colours and authentic patterns bring this saree on the must-have list of all women.
