The quintessential Indian garment, traditionally worn by most women in India, the sari is a personification of all things Indian. A staple in every woman’s wardrobe, the draped garment has seen many changes over the years. Meaning ‘A piece of cloth’, the sari has about 10 to 15 different variations in the way it is draped, with each region also having its own specialized designs for the sari. We have the Banarasi silk and Kota jail saris from the North, the Kanjeevaram and Konrad saris from the South, Taant and Kantha saris from the East and Bandhani and Paithani saris from the West. These regional variations of the sari have their own identity, their own image.
The saree has been an all-weather garment for women since millennia. Its comfort, grace, flexibility and versatility have made it the most popular casual garment for women. Even used saris are well utilized as quilts, rags or as a hammock for use by young children. According to regional variations, sarees come in various sizes(lengths), depending on how the garment has to be draped. Nevertheless, nowadays most Indian women now wear saris of the Nivi style of draping from Andhra Pradesh, which is easy to drape and is of a shorter length.

Being a draped garment, there has been a lot of room for decorating, designing, embellishing and embroidering the sari, which is generally of five to nine yards in length. Traditionally cottage weavers used to spend days ensuring the best embroidery for the sari, using traditional techniques and motifs. Saris are available in most materials-cotton, silk, velvet, chiffon etc. with embroidery being done as per specifications or availability. Undergoing a modern twist, saris now come in unconventional colours like off-white, velvet and maroon with newer, Indo-Western versions of the sari being introduced like the sari gown, half and half sari, lace sari, sheer net sari and colour pleated sari. Even with the blouses, there have been many changes, with different neckline designs and even substituting the blouse for a western top.
The modern Indian woman now desires much more than a traditional sari, she wants something that she can identify with- a celebrity, a region, her culture or even her own personality. Modern Indian fashion designers understand these unique requirements of the women and have come up with newer designs of the sari which represents a much broader spectrum of designs, inspired by various themes, both modern and traditional.
