Handloom Sarees

sarisaree or shari  is a women’s garment. From the Indian subcontinent that consists of an unstitched drape varying from 4.5 to 9 metres (15 to 30 feet) in length and 600 to 1,200 millimetres (24 to 47 inches) in breadth. It is typically wrapped around the waist, with one end draped over the shoulder, covering a larger portion of the midriff. There are various styles of saree manufacture and draping, the most common being the Tant style, which originated in the Bengal region. The Saree is worn with a fitted bodice commonly called a choli (ravike in southern India, and cholo in Nepal) and a petticoat called ghagraparkar or ul-pavadai. In the modern Indian subcontinent, the sari is considered a cultural icon.
