Model Wearing Banarasi Silk Saree from Kolour


Traditional Indian attire


India, with her vibrant culture and traditions that makes her one of the most fascinating nations across the globe, keeps growing day by day. What makes it even more impressive is the vivid traditional clothes worn by people throughout the country by both men and women. The craftsmanship with which artisans create traditional clothes is really incredible. Many of these weaves are dying because the cost of production is higher and few people can afford the high cost of the sarees and fabrics. Textile ministry came up with ways to sustain these artisans and preserve their talent and art.

Traditional Silk Saree

Indian traditional clothes such as sarees, handloom sarees, kurtis, lehengas, and dhotis for men are widely donned by Indians. May it be a South Indian, or a North Indian or from East or West of India, cultural diversity never cease them from uniting under a single traditional fashion of sarees. 

Indian ethnic clothing for women has its own charm that takes everyone by storm in the most charismatic way. What’s more promising is to see many of the youth are quite glad to be indulged in Indian ethnic wear and due to this more and more fashion designers are exploring the new methods to revive traditional clothing with a modern touch.

Handloom sarees are always a part of Indian traditions from a long time. A saree is considered to be the main drape for women in times of celebrations and festivities. Lehenga cholis, kurtis, churidars and other options are always a second choice to sarees for majority of Indian women.


Beautiful handloom artistic pieces are made frequently by master artisans through out the time. The impeccable weaves and patterns on sarees make everyone wonder about the talent pool in Indian sub-continent.


Silk is one of the mesmerising fabrics to drape. There are many types of saree draping styles that are found in different parts of the country.  Indian clothing now is created out of a number of fabrics that are now chosen as a form of comfort rather than appearance.

The impact of ethnic handloom sarees go deep into the history , culture and heritage. Sarees as a traditional attire are as popular among Indians now as it was in the olden times, making India one of the richest countries in terms of culture and colour.
