About

The sari is the most representative apparel of India, a visual identity that has intrigued men and tempted women all over the world. The unstitched cloth is a truly Indian phenomenon. It is when you travel in India that you begin to understand the sari is a hugely variable garment. The lady from the fishing community wears it differently from the rice planting agriculturist. An urban woman from Gujarat wears it differently from the women of Tamil Nadu. Woven, embroidered, brocaded, hand-printed, tied-and-dyed, even painted, in shimmering silk, finely spun khadi, or cottons as light as the breeze, many unique examples of this extraordinary garment will be on display.

Part of maximum INDIA.
