Sarees have a truly special place in the traditions of India. It is an ancient garment that has evolved through time and is perhaps the only thriving unstitched ancient garment from the past.

It is good to hang your silk sarees on good quality wooden or plastic hangers. Don't choose metal or alloy as rust on the hangers can leave stains behind. But most of us may not have that luxury of space but for those of you who do not have the space, you can choose to store your sarees in a box.
