In India, silk has long been synonymous with royalty. Pure silk chiffon is a particular favourite, with its fine weave rendering the delicate fabric translucent. Hand woven in the balanced plain weave technique, the close proximity of the silken fibres, both waft- wise and warp-wise results in the creation of a supple and airy fabric.
Adorned with striking patterns juxtaposed against vividly coloured silks, chiffon saris are universally appealing. Besides their beauty, these saris have several other virtues. Soft, light and comfortable, the fine mesh of their silk has oft been described as cooling, and therefore perfect for summer wear.
Fabled as being wrinkle free, these gorgeous saris are a popular choice for weddings, festivals, pujas, and formal functions.
