The origin of draping a saree is several centuries old – apparently it was first recorded in the Indus valley civilization. However, the modern 6 yards saree evolved from the original two-piece garment of yesteryears. In the beginning, saree is believed to have been a garment for the lower body only. This style can still be seen on temple sculptures which show goddesses and dancers wearing a dothi-wrap. This fish-tale saree wearing style loosely covers the legs and has long decorative pleats down the front. This saree drape not only facilitated easy movement but also made the wearer look more feminine

Sarees are making way for western outfits due to the comfort and ease of wearing them, giving a sensuous look, etc. Our objective is to change this outlook towards our oldest fabric which is looked down as too traditional and orthodox. A Saree if draped properly can help a women look gorgeous and sensuous at the same time. We make sure that experience of draping a saree is made as simple as wearing a western outfit thus helping women to experiment with their looks every time on every occasion.

  • Nauvari/Maharashtrian/kashta – Originating from Maharashtra, it is a very unique style of draping 9 yards of saree. It looks like a mix of dhoti in the bottom and a normal saree in the top.

The center of the sari (held lengthwise) is placed at the center back, the ends are brought forward and tied securely, then the two ends are wrapped around the legs. When worn as a sari, an extra-long cloth is used and the ends are then passed up over the shoulders and the upper body.
