Why do women choose to wear a silk blouse for sarees?
Sarees have been traditional Indian wear for a long period. This is mainly because women who worked in ancient India wore this attire, and they claimed that they looked beautiful only when draped in a saree. Of course, there have been many changes in the way the saree is being designed nowadays, but the idea of the clothing remains the same.
Is silk material costly or cheap?
Silk is a very costly material, and hence, wearing a silk saree and a silk blouse proves that the person wearing it is from a rich background. Many people wear such clothing to flaunt their wealth. The secondary idea behind it is the look that it gives. Silk blouses give out a vibrant colour. This material can reflect light more brightly, and therefore people prefer sarees and blouses made of silk. Silk blouses are comfortable and can be a good choice for any saree and any occasion.
Maintenance of silk sarees
Silk is prone to rough use, and it does not wear out so easily. The material is also soft and smooth, which makes it comfortable to be worn in any weather. The cost is the main disadvantage of silk sarees and blouses because it is not affordable for everyone.
Versatility observed in the design industry
This is why other sarees have been designed made with a combination of silk and cotton or silk and any other material. The main idea behind designing such sarees is to reduce the price of the saree by including silk in it as well. This creates a win-win situation between the customer and the industry or the manufacturers. If a person cannot afford a pure silk saree, she can purchase a silk cotton saree at a lower and decent price, with a higher percentage of silk. Many women prefer to wear a silk blouse for a saree because of the rich look.
The manufacturing process of silk sarees is huge. Pure silk sarees stitched with various kinds of traditional silk blouses are very famous in Mysore, Karnataka. Many people prefer these sarees for weddings, functions, traditional events and so on. Maintaining a silk saree is also a difficult task because it can get damaged when it comes in contact with water. Hence it should always be dry cleaned and ironed safely.
