The wardrobe of a saree enthusiast woman has atleast one saree from different regions of India. It is their hobby and desires to own the specialties and the traditional sarees of the regions across India. Apart from these traditional sarees you’ll also find the regular wear sarees like plain sarees, synthetic sarees, Printed sarees etc. Women in India love to accessorize themselves, especially when dressed in Saree. They flaunt with jewelry, Gajara and make up. 

Each state of India has its own specialty. A unique range of gorgeous and beautiful sarees come from Gujarat, Bengal, Rajasthan, Haryana, Western Uttar Pradesh, Western Madhya Pradesh, Orissa, Kerala, Chennai and Tamilnadu. The dominant characteristic of the saree of Gujarat, Rajasthan, Haryana, Western Uttar Pradesh and Western Madhya Pradesh regions is obtained by dyeing rather than weaving techniques. In fact, the three major forms of Indian resist-dyeing – block printing, tie & dye and ikat have evolved in these regions.

A saree is a daily wear attire of thousands of women across India. It is most elegant creation that gives a sensuous and concealing look to a woman. A woman is draped in a saree from head to toe and still looks sexy and hot, that’s the charm of a saree. Saree is the favorite clothing for women across India.

Georgette Sarees
One of the most commonly used material in making a modern saree is Georgette. The material is very lightweight but the weight of Georgette may vary depending on the work. This is the easiest fabric to carry as in the form of saree. The pleats come so well, the saree is tucked well without and hustle and bustle.
