Saree saga with UNNATI SILKS

Hello my beautiful readers,

Today I am going to share my views about something which is ageless and symbolizes India. Its history is as glorious as its beauty. Yess, I am talking about those 9 yards (some times 6 yards) Saree which ensures that everyone is going to look gorgeous wearing it, no matter the person is of which age group or size.
Women traditionally wear various types of regional handloom saree made of silk, cotton, ikkat, block-print, embroidery and tie-dye textiles. Most sought after brocade silk sarees are Banasari, Kanchipuram, Gadwal, Paithani, Mysore, Uppada, Bagalpuri, Balchuri, Maheshwari, Chanderi, Mekhela, Ghicha, Narayan pet and Eri etc. are traditionally worn for festive and formal occasions. Silk ikat and cotton sarees known as Patola, Pochampally, Bomkai, Khandua, Sambalpuri, Gadwal, Berhampuri, Bargarh, Jamdani, Tant, Mangalagiri, Guntur, Narayan pet, Chanderi, Maheshwari, Nuapatn, Tussar, Ilkal, Kotpad and Manipuri were worn for both festive and everyday attire. Tie died and block print sarees known as Bandhani, Leheria/Leheriya, Bagru, Ajrakh, Sungudi, Kota Dabu/Dabu print, Bagh and Kalamkari were traditionally worn during monsoon season.

Gota patti is popular form of traditional embroidery used on saris for formal occasions, various other types of traditional folk embroidery such mochi, pakko, kharak, suf, kathi, phulkari and gamthi are also commonly used for both informal and formal occasion. Today, modern fabrics like polyester, georgette and charmeuse are also commonly used.omen traditionally wore various types of regional handloom sarees made of silk, cotton, ikkat, block-print, embroidery and tie-dye textiles.

Saree for me was always fascinating as I have seen my mom and sister wearing it in most graceful way and My mom taught me how to drape it when I was getting ready for my freshers party in college. I prefer silk or cotton fabrics while buying saree. These two fabrics are very comfortable and make one look simply classic and royal.

I recently came across UNNATI SILKS which are well known for handbook sarees, suit materials, dupattas.From the beginning, Unnati has had its strength in traditional handlooms.

I ordered for my self a peach color silk saree with sleek border because I am not very tall and I feel, more broad border would make me look short. The fabric is of best quality and same as displayed on their website.

I have styled bloused of this saree by putting some plates on 3/4th sleeves.I wore a traditional temple jewelry which goes well with silk fabric.

If you have any doubt about product quality, I want to tell you guys Unnati Silk never compromises on this front. I have washed this saree twice and fabric is same as new and it had no color bleeding. Unnati Silks has an enviable collection of 300 + Saree Varieties and 60 + Salwar Kameez Varieties from 21 States of India. Available at Unnati’s Stores and selectively displayed on the website, it would not be wrong in claiming it as the widest range of Indian ethnic handloom sarees and salwar kameez available under a single banner.

Unnati Silks, despite the changing market conditions, has always maintained attractive and affordable rates that has built for it a solid base of loyal customers who have been associated with Unnati for years, and the number is growing.

Check out their website for their entire collection.here
