Some Types Of Sarees Every Woman Must Have In Her Wardrobe

We celebrate all our festivals with much pomp and show and believe in going the grand way, no matter what the occasion. Be it down south or up north, every region and state has something spectacular to offer – different cuisines, different rituals, different clothes and so much more.

But there is one thing that binds us all through threads of elegance and that is our love for sarees. The nine-yard beauty is something all women hold close to their heart. Sarees are not just cloth to be draped around your waist, they are much more than that. They have a deeper emotional connect for us, all because of our mothers.

If you’re in love with sarees and are looking to expand your current collection, then you’re at the right place.

Here are all the different kinds of sarees you can get from across

1. Banarasi from Varanasi

Banarasi sarees are known for their gold and silver zari designs and motifs. It was originally woven for royalty only, as each saree was made with real gold and silver threads. The detailing was so intricate that back then, they used to take more than a year to finish weaving one saree. But now, there is a variety to choose from.


2. Kanjeevaram from Tamil Nadu

The queen of sarees, Kanjeevaram sarees are made from a traditionally woven silk from the region of Kanjeevaram. The sarees are rich in colour and texture. They are elegant, refined and graceful, all in one drape.

3. Bandhani from Gujarat

The name of the saree is derived from the word, ‘bandhan’, which means ties. This refers to the process of tie and dye which makes this saree. Both Gujarat and Rajasthan are known for the Bandhani saree. However, the weavers of the Khatri community of Gujarat are known as the pioneers. They practice this art exclusively to this day.

4. Chanderi from Madhya Pradesh

Silk, zari and cotton are woven together to make a fabric that is lighter than a feather, has a royal sheen and is gorgeous looking. It’s one of the best fabrics there is and it’s very easy to wear. If you’re a fussy saree person, then this will keep your woes away.

5. Leheriya from Rajasthan

Leheriya is just another form of Bandhani, but follows a different technique of tie and dye. The difference is in the way the cloth is tied while it is going through the dyeing process.

6. Phulkari from Punjab

Phulkari literally translates to ‘flower work’ and that is exactly what it is. Thread work in bright hues in the shape of flowers. The Phulkari made its first appearance in the legendary Heer-Ranjha story and has been there ever since. The Phulkari embroidery is usually done on either cotton blends or khadi fabrics and is more popular in the form of dupattas.

7. Chikankari from Lucknow

If you ever set foot on the soil of Lucknow, you’ll know that Chikankari is something that is exclusive to this town. Traditionally done on a muslin cloth, it is now available on almost all kinds of fabrics. Make sure to get your hands on this one!
