Tale of two weaves 2021- Cotton and silk

Two of the oldest fabrics which man has known are cotton and silk. Both being natural fabric adds to their timeless beauty and wonder. These two exquisite weaves tell tales of their being part of every wardrobe of every woman. The evolution of these fabrics from then to now is another saga of keeping up with the times. They are eternal, classic and here to stay forever.

Cotton weaves

A starchy cotton saree is just what you need to present yourself in, when you want to create a statement through your sartorial taste. Isn’t it true that we pay notice to a woman’s attire in a more judging way and take cues from them if we think they have been able to create a visual impression? A cotton saree helps build that sense of power and authority. Printed cotton sarees in Batik, Ikat and bandhani are great choice for workplace. I personally loved the Narayanpeth sarees that Rekha wore in the movie Ijaazat, not to mention the chanderi cottons that Sridevi wore in English Vinglish. Cotton sarees exude a mix of power and charisma which never goes out of date. For more dressy occasions look for embroidered cottons which have a feminine touch of marvel.

The regal charm of silks needs no description. They are a pure joy and pride of every wardrobe, a few being heirloom treasures. The elegant and resplendent silks are an integral part of every festivity and every celebratory occasion. Whether it is Kanjeevaram silk of the south, Paithari of the west, Banarasi and Tussar sarees of the east or Kashmiri embroidered of the north, they are all a beauty to behold. So different from each other and so similar when it comes to their enamour and allure. You don’t need a season or a reason to buy silk sarees.
