When the Indian summer is around the corner, it’s time to bring out those linens and cotton attire for comfortable wear. There is nothing more graceful and comfy as adorning yourself on five meters of flowing and breathable fabric as a traditional handloom saree, or a printed cotton-silk saree. Although Indian handloom sarees originate in only a few states, they are steeped in our rich heritage.
The average handloom saree takes the effort of 2 to 3 people who work for 3 to 10 days weaving threads on a shuttle-pit loom made of ropes and wooden beams. These traditional weavers of India are simple people who work hard to weave every saree by hand. They contribute handsomely to the Indian cottage industries and are usually from Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Uttar Pradesh, Bengal, Orissa and Madhya Pradesh. The sarees are almost always made from either cotton, silk or a blend of both silk and cotton threads. There are many varieties of handloom sarees such as homespun khadi to rich Banarasi silk, and there’s one for every occasion. We will take a closer look at pure cotton handloom, cotton-silk and linen printed sarees as well as Banarasi cotton and tussar silk varieties.
