The Durga Puja is just a few weeks away and everyone is getting ready to be in their best attire on the puja evenings. And what can be most gorgeous than sarees. So here is some informations about sarees .

The Sari is both concealing and revealing. Sari is alluring and practical, demure and tantalizing. Sari is unstitched, yet a perfect fit for every woman's body. Sari has its place in history, yet is surrounded by fantasy and legend. The Sari is the most popular and longest worn style in the history of women's fashion.

Sari can be made with various materials and worn in a variety of ways, but it is nonetheless enduring and practical. In southern India, Sarees are nine yards long. Sarees are draped between the legs to form a type of full, flowing pant. Further north, the Coorgi's wear the Sari like a full-length gown and, sometimes, is used to cover a topless woman.

Traditionally, Sarees are six yards long and are draped around the body and over the shoulder. Wearing a Sari in this fashion makes a very classic, elegant statement. Fabrics range from silk to cotton, pastel solids to flowery prints. Sari can be embroidered, tasseled, free-flowing or gathered.

All over the world, women have found an appreciation for the simple beauty and elegance of the Sari. The Sari is traced back as far as 3000 BC, in Hindu literature and paintings. It is said that the Sari was born on the loom of a fanciful weaver. He wanted to weave a cloth that would shimmer like a woman's tears, flow like long, tumbling hair and reflect the colors of her many moods. He began to weave the softness of her touch and the beauty of femininity. He kept weaving and weaving until he was satisfied with what he had done.

Today we have a vast collection of sareesfrom different parts of India each carrying some special features or textures. Kanjeevaram, Banarasi, tant,bangalore silk, shiffon, crepe, Valkalam are some of the sareers Indian women love to have in their wardrobe.

Sarees are a perfect attire for the beutiful people on Earth. This Festive season deck yourself up with this six yard cloth.
