Traditional Kanchipuram sarees are commonly worn in south India specifically in the state of Tamil Nadu. These sarees are woven from pure mulberry silk and have bold prints and designs usually in red and maroon shades. Traditional Kanchipuram sarees have a unique texture that is unlike any other fabric made in India; they last almost a lifetime. These sarees are worn on sacred religious occasions and are passed from one generation to another as a tradition.
For special occasions gold thread is intertwined with the mulberry silk to create the Kanchipuram saree. The designs are inspired by nature and usually include elements like peacocks, lions, parrots, leaves, the sun and the moon. The fabric is extremely soft to touch which is why these sarees are dipped in starch before they are ironed and worn. It allows them to maintain their pleats and overall shape.
Traditional Kanchipuram sarees are the beacon of Indian ethnic wear and fashion industry. They exude an element of royalty which is why women wear them with minimal accessories to keep the attention on the saree itself.
Sarees are made with all kinds of fabrics like chiffon, silk, cotton, net, jacquard, velvet etc. However traditional silk sarees top the list of being highest in demand in India. They are made with the purest form of silk that is processed to give it strength. Traditional silk sarees come in a variety of types such as raw silk, Banarsi, Chanderi, Mysore, Dharmavaram, Patola etc.
The most popular silk saree has to be the Banarsi which is worn by Indian women on all kinds of occasions. It comes in bold colours like gold, hot pink, neon yellow, purple, green, bright red and violet with bold block prints or geometric shapes. Bollywood divas are fond of Banarsi sarees and are often photographed wearing these to movie premieres, social events, parties, Diwali and weddings. From Deepika Padukone to Kareena Kapoor, Bollywood actresses never miss the opportunity to wear a Banarsi saree.
Silk sarees are challenging to carry and require extra caution while draping. It is recommended to pin in all the pleats so the fabric stays in place and you can carry it with confidence. The chances that you will trip over a silk saree are pretty high; we recommend pairing them with kitten heels.
