A little peek in the history of Indian Saris
Indian Sarees are probably the magnificent and most versatile Indian ethnic wear, reflecting India’s regal culture and heritage. They come in a variety of styles, colours, textures, and fabrics and brides should try to include at least one Saree trousseau. Wearing a saree may be a little difficult but the results are worth all the effort. These not only complement each woman, irrespective of size and colour, but also look graceful and stunning.
The history of Indian Saris or an outfit similar to it is traced back to the 2800-1800 BCE during the Indus Valley Civilisation, in the north-western part of the Indian subcontinent. Natural dyes used during this time were mostly indigo, turmeric, red madder and lac, red madder, and turmeric. While cotton was the most common fabric during this time, Silk came sometime later during the 2450- 2000 BCE.
It is believed that the word sari evolved from the Sanskirt word satika mentioned in the earliest Hindu textbooks as women’s attire. The satika evolved from a three-piece ensemble. It comprised an antariya (the lower garment), uttariya (a veil worn over the shoulder or the head), and a stanapatta (a chest band).
Thus, Sarees have been intertwined with the Indian subcontinent for ages, with mentions of it in the Mahabharata to the modern-day Bollywood movies where the beautiful actors create statements through their looks, that end up getting included in the fashion trend. We may not be able to preserve every bit of the long history, but whatever little we can, we should not let it go, just like that!
