Fancy Indian Sarees

The fancy sarees have occupied a distinct position in the Indian saree category as the majority of sarees fit this category. In addition, many traditional elements have been incorporated into them. For instance, the styles, techniques and designs of the white kosara pudava muslin are now commonly found in the popular Coimbatore sarees.

the fancy sarees are created by mix and match process. Often the designs of the sarees are added in different fabrics like the famous zardousi work is done in chiffon and Georgette fabrics instead of silk sarees. Even the cotton yarn is dyed before weaving and the zari replaced by colored silks but the traditional basic design structure of fancy sarees is still visible in the form of narrow bands of supplementary-wrap patterning and satin-weave borders. Today, most of the field patterning is woven in the weft rather than the wrap, probably because power looms, rather than hand looms, are used. Southern Karnataka also created sarees for specific regional markets, such as silk bandhanis for western India and silk Jamdanis for Bengal. Although they are technically skillful, their colors are often atypical of the regional sarees they mimic and their designs distinctly modern.

Even the wedding sarees are now designed by following contemporary designs and fabrics. The face and reverse side of the wedding saree are sometimes decked with interlocked-weft join of the border and field. This causes a triangular mokku design in the traditional sarees. On the reverse side of the saree, a fresh warp thread is twisted around each field warp, and then the green wrap is cut off after the two threads have been woven together. The designer sarees are now in trend, which are made by amalgamating exclusive designs with traditional and ethical motifs and patterns.

The fancy sarees often fuse patch work with embroidery, traditional motifs with the usage of vibrant colored fabrics. the motifs, patterns and fabrics of different regions are combined to create a stylized version of modern fancy sarees. The brilliant concept of the designers is manifested in their dexterous creations of exclusive sarees. Even the modern brides wear sarees that are designed by the designers, which have a trendy look with the added traditional tint. The designers create exclusive sarees that are extensively filled with zardosi work in chiffon and Georgette fabrics and are often embellished with stones, beads, and other decorating materials.

Fashion sarees woven in Nadu display the modern trend with the traditional touch. Most of these sarees are woven on power looms. Their supplementary-warp and-weft embellishments are often evocative of the older, white-and-gold, narrow-bordered sarees.
