Enthralling Transformation

In India, the piece of clothing that is considered to be tremendously traditional and widely celebrated is the saree. It is deemed as the archetypal Indian apparel for women. Currently, the popularity of the saree is not confined within the borders of India but instead has managed to gain international praise. The saree manages to assert the rich historical value that exists within India, which in amalgamation with the immense patriotic allure in multiple regional techniques, fabrics and embroidery designs has resulted in sarees that are not exclusively new in design but are also a means to revive ancient designs in the market.

The emergence of several methods such as weaving, dying and printing was considered to be the most enthralling historical development in the Indian saree industry. The talent and skill demonstrated by the rural artists and weavers in their iridescent multidimensional textiles resulted in global recognition and prominence, despite the ancient times. The sarees were meticulously hand painted, the Indian silks were woven stunningly and the cotton clothes were radiantly printed; these unique features made these items hold immense global value. These items caught the attention of wealthy merchants and honorable women that resided outside of India. Opulent fabrics, sophisticated designs and embellishments were deemed as a norm as a result of these classic textures and materials being commissioned by empresses and aristocrats. Nature and religious beliefs further inspired the generic and motif designing visible on the sarees. Ultimately, the saree industry’s newest chapter now represents revolutionary and fusion designs, while painting everybody’s lives with traditional and colorful pieces.
