The saree is traditional attire for most Indian women; a national heritage that has also assumed the level of a fashion statement. Traditionally handloom silk sarees have always been used for special occasions like weddings, traditional festivals and as bridal attire. Nowadays parties, important social events, corporate functions are also occasions meant for the use of silk handlooms. Indian weddings are special occasions when the South Handlooms Silk saree is displayed in all its dimensions of variety, finery, opulence and one-upmanship. The Indian party scene, an occasion for fun and enjoyment, a lot of mirth and social exchange, is also an opportune time for women to display their latest acquisitions in Southern handloom silks. Traditional festivals and social functions also provide occasion for the use of Southern Handloom silk sarees.
Silk has always been a popular fabric yarn in India where mulberry and other forms of silk are cultivated. South Handloom Silks are famous for their soft feel, rich thread work, attractive motifs and patterns, contrast borders in a wide range of vibrant colours. No wedding or anniversary function is possible, even today, without the Silk ‘Pattu’ sarees being on display. The bride, the women in the family, relatives, guests who attend, all appear in their resplendent silk sarees of different varieties or traditional styles. It is a fine display of new incorporations of designs, patterns, colours and adorning features like zardozi, ari, gota and other forms of embroidery, kundan work, mirror work, chamki work etc.
Silks have always been a favourite with women because of the rich look, airy comfort and the exclusiveness in price compared to other fabrics. Especially costly pure silk sarees that range from 15000 rupees onwards to touch a lakh and above, are jealously guarded, worn with caution and care exercised at every step, to be worn for grand exclusive occasions only. There is a healthy mix even of different regions wherein the saree could have the attractive and appealing features of different traditional styles. Such as the modern designer prints being block printed on the body, the attach border having exquisite embroidery and the pallu portraying scenes from nature in eco-colours, hand painted in tribal art.
