One of the oldest known Indian garment is a Saree.
According to Wikipedia, “A Sari, saree, sadi, or shari, is a South Asian female garment that consists of a drape varying from five to nine yards (4.5 metres to 8 metres) in length and two to four feet (60 cm to 1.20 m) in breadth that is typically wrapped around the waist, with one end draped over the shoulder, baring the midriff.
The sari is usually worn over a petticoat, with a fitted upper garment commonly called a blouse. The blouse has short sleeves and is usually cropped at the midriff. The sari is associated with grace and is widely regarded as a symbol of grace in South Asian cultures.”
Sarees can be made of various materials, including Chiffons, silks, velvets and cottons, each constructing a unique look and style.

Half and Half Saree
This is another popular trend, especially with our younger customers. They can wear the Saree as a skit, and then do a mini-drape of the pallu for that complete look.
