The Sari, Unstitched : An unraveling of the versatile fabric

The Sari is an unstitched piece of fabric ranging from five to nine yards in length, with two ornamental borders running along the length, and a pallu at the outer end. Versatile and fluid, the Sari can be draped in any style using just knots and pleats needing no petticoat and blouse either.

The unstitched fabric, in the past, would enjoy the patronage of both women and men. Men would wear it as a pair of shorts or a dhoti depending on the occasion, while women around India customized the Sari to their needs, culture and geography, thus giving birth to more than 100 draping styles across India. Despite the rich historical background, the Sari can always be personalised to one’s needs; once the principles are honed and put into practice, many more draping styles can evolve for contemporary needs.

The diverse Sari drapes are most comfortable, limitless, and beautiful when draped in a handloom Sari, a dying art in much need for a resurgence.

Join Niketa, an acclaimed Sari researcher and stylist in this unique event where she will take you through the history of the garment and show you some fascinating drapes from India. Niketa will give you a glimpse of the different types of Indian handloom fabrics, their qualities and how the art needs to be supported. In the end, she will teach select participants the art of draping the Sari and developing an unique personal style.
