The unknown and untold stories of Indian silk sarees
Without many tall tales let me get straight into the discussion. Why are the silk sarees so popular?
The silk sarees are versatile yarns
Silk in its versatility has stolen the heart of many and there is no dearth of texture variation if you have chosen silk as your next wardrobe courtesy.
Sarees are one of the flattest fabrics that we wear unstitched. One cannot bring much variation into such a creative thing, silk is one such yarn that has the color, grace, design and texture variation that you would not find in any other material. No other fiber can produce the same effect or weaving pattern as silk!
Silk is tensile compared to other fabrics
Compared to other fabrics that you find in the market you will see that the silk is one of the most tensile. Despite its smoothness and luster, it is unique, and so is the depth of its texture, its absorbency, and pliability. It is not slippery or flimsy like synthetic materials and is commercially extracted in white/ off-white yarn.

Only fabric to witness so many rich cultures
Yes, silk is one of the most cherished fabrics of today. It is having a multitude of weaving and has been in the market since ages. It has undergone a large change and multiple usages. Why I am saying so - well, it is the only fabric that has deep connections with the Mughal and Persian influences on the Indian culture. After they left, it was the Indian weavers themselves who gave silk a new turn in life with their unique saree arts. It is astounding that almost every region of India has its own special, native silk saree. Most of these are hand-woven, handloom sarees, and are often made by either pure silk fiber or blended (with cotton yarn and zari) silk fiber.
I will continue to share the stories of silk every month since it has unending saga to tell. Like these facts were unknown to you. So wait for the next blog that will tell more about silk sarees online.
