Kanchipuram Sarees—Spell It The Way You Want, The Beauty Is For Ever
The love affair between an Indian woman and Kanchipuram sarees goes beyond the threshold of spellings and diction. A woman probably wants to get married so that she can at least have one Kanchipuram sarees for her collection and the rest will follow. The moment you enter a saree shop, you will know why I am not wrong in saying women die for owning Kanchipuram sarees.
The color of the saree is so bright, that it has always been a favorite for the Bollywood heroines. They do not know what else to wear when they are in for a very formal function and it is from there that trend picks up. The culture, to which we are not exposed, comes into existence with a movie or when a celebrity wears it as in case of Kanchipuram sarees. A south Indian woman wears a Kanchipuram saree when she is getting married and there is variety from very heavy to not so heavy sarees.
It is sad to realize that due to shortage of labor the industry is slowing closing down as there are not many who want to work in the making of Kanchipuram sarees. It is a hand woven fabric and laborers are no more interested in this work of art. This is one of the reasons in the growing price of the sarees and it is getting rarer and rarer. But we can still find a few for our collection from the online saree shop and can also make a choice.
Kanchipuram sarees are a collection of sarees which can be passed on to the generation and do not lose the texture and glow of the saree. These are handmade sarees and are done with love and care. They need proper maintenance and it is said and we should not clean or send it for dry cleaning very often as this shortens the life of the Kanchipuram sarees. To promote saree, so that the production does not stop we should wear it more often and feel good.
Let us pledge to buy one sari in our lifetime and pass it on to the generation to come. The art is also dying because many few people wear sari these days and the dress code is changing with the modern views and thoughts. Something which we cannot alter is Kanchipuram sareesare a gift to us from our tradition and rich heritage.
