Untold facts about cotton sarees

  • Print

Who doesn't have a cotton saree in her wardrobe? It's the most essential and common piece in a sub-continental woman's wardrobe. The ease of wearing the fabric is a boon to the people residing in the hot climatic conditions in the country. Alas! The same kind of eagerness and pride is fading out. Most of the young women in sub-continent don't appreciate cotton sarees as they would have done a few decades back. They just don't realize what an amazing tradition, history, and style they can adorn through such sarees.


Cotton is the most desired fabric for printing: We all are aware of our unified love for printed sarees. But do you know which is the most preferred fabric for printing? It's the cotton due to its property of high color retention. The printed design on cotton sarees barely fades. The fabric may get worn out due to excessive long time use but the print will stay. That's the beauty of cotton sarees.


Cotton is also preferred due to its durability and strength: Another major reason that contributed to the popularity of cotton is the durability of the fabric. Its strong nature made it a preferred choice for people who craved for a long-lasting fabric that doesn't get torn off easily. You can also do any type of embroidery on cotton and it will look perfect without causing any glitches to the creator as well as to the user.

It's ideal for summers also because it absorbs the sweat: Cotton sarees may be comfortable to wear in summer but what made it win millions of hearts is something else. It's the ability to absorb perspiration that people admired in the cotton fabric. The fabric itself makes you feel so cool and calm that you will never want to wear any other fabric if you tried it once. Add to it the combination of a free-flowing design like a saree and you won't feel the need to try any other attire. As a college student, I often wondered and even cringed over how women could wear a saree in hot burning summer. But the fact is it actually makes it easier to bear the heat.

They're not a fire hazard: Oops! Am I trying to compare the cotton sarees to some other fabric? I, definitely, am. A lot of women consider wearing a fabric like cotton tough and not needed. The maintenance required for such a fabric is slightly more than synthetic fabrics. But here's the fact - if you're going to manage your household chores, especially cooking, you must not wear a synthetic fabric. It's flammable and quite easily catches fire whereas cotton is completely safe.

Sarees are national dress for women of Bangladesh, but not of India: We feel sarees are the most commonly worn garment in sub-continent by women and considering the types and styles available, we think it must be the national dress in India but it's not. In fact, sarees are the national dress for women in Bangladesh and even in the neighboring country - Nepal, sarees are extremely common and popular. Indians, nowadays, prefer sarees for special occasions whereas Bangladesh and Nepal see sarees as popular daily wear garments. (excerpt)
