"Business card" Indian woman

The history of National Women’s Clothing of India has many millennia, almost as much as Indian civilization itself. Indian Sari has absorbed the traditions and customs of this country and has become an integral part of Indian culture. A lot of legends are difficult about sari. One of them tells about the magic weaver, who dreamed of work about the perfect woman, and his dreams embodied in a beautiful female robe, which later became known as Sari. Having passed through the century, withstanding the test of time, Sari, of course, has undergone some changes: the fabric changed, coloring, drawing, but it remained unchanged and its femininity and elegant simplicity, and in this sense, this clothing is unique in this sense.

Fashion designers of antiquity that created this universal clothing did not assume that it would be a phenomenon in the history of world fashion. Modern designers are celebrated in Sari, besides such aesthetic qualities as beauty and elegance, also practicality: it is easy to wash and iron, it does not constrain movements, it advantageously emphasizes the female silhouette, and at the same time hides the flaws of the figure. Watching from the side, probably not without curiosity inherent in women, behind the endless change of the trends of world fashion, Indian women and today are true to their national clothes.

What is sari? Cloth fabrics with 4, 5 m to 9 m in length and from 1 m to 1, 5 m wide, richly decorated with a stiven colored ornament or silver or gold thread embroidered. And today, Indian women prefer sari from natural fabrics – usually cotton or silk, better quality, often handmade.

Oncecale weaving was a craft family, professional secrets were transmitted from generation to generation. Weaving craft is heavy and time consuming, so men are more often engaged in.

Threads are hiding from silkworm cocoons. Then they are dumped, stained and wind on the bobbins. Color with special paints, the secret of cooking which every family of weaves is kept in secret. Paints are famous for their resistance, they do not lose and burn out in the sun.

In each workshop there are their secrets of the drawing on the fabric. If a woman orders expensive sari, she can count on exclusive. Such sari is performed on a stencil, which is subsequently destroyed. And the possibility of a collision face to face equally dressed women is completely excluded!

It is very important to wear sari right and beautifully move in it, and it is also art. A piece of fabric, called sari, is not sewn anywhere and is not connected. There are dozens of ways to drape the same Sari, so that it looks like a new one every time. There are Sari "Sakacha" and "Nivi" , That is, sari pants and sari skirt. To drag the sari skirt, it is necessary to have two elements – bullies and lower skirts. Blouse ("Choli") should be quite narrow and short, with or without sleeves. Typically, the color of the blouse is selected under the color of the edging of the sari or under the main color of the fabric. The lower skirt should make her waist tightly and attached without the help of a gum, as the gum can delay under the weight of sari. Best use tape. The lower skirt should approach the primary color of sari as close as possible.
