Did you know what the fastest selling products, sold online in India, are? Not mobile phones or tablets, but sarees! Surprising as that might be, it’s also hard not to see why. Sarees are an integral part of our culture and the apparel of choice when it comes to weddings and festive occasions.
"The texture of silk is hard to match, making it the fabric of choice for exclusive sarees."
Softness and texture
Sarees made out of silk are extremely soft and lustrous. Silk can be dyed in colors that no other fabric can absorb to the same extent. The natural sheen of silk is one of its best features.
Silk is a strong natural fiber. Silk is also naturally elastic and can stretch to a small extent without breaking. This makes silk sarees very durable.
Silk is similar to human hair. It is made up of protein (97%), fat and wax. It is free of any chemicals and is safe for any skin type. On top of this, silk is resistant to dust, mold and fungus.
Draping of the sari
Silk drapes extremely well relative to other fabrics. The ease of draping combined with the light weight makes silk the obvious fabric of choice for sarees.
