Sarees have long been an integralpart of Indian culture and tradition. Woven by hand, in the past a considerable amount of time and money was invested especially in making pure silk sarees that bore pure silk yarns in both warp and weft. Sometimes these silken warp and weft yarns were tie-dyed and then woven, creating ikat patterns or sometimes the yarns of different colors were woven into the base fabric to form patterns. Typically, a decorative border, an elaborate pallu, and small repetitive designs on the body called motifs were woven in the sari fabric itself. For designer silk saris, these patterns were woven in gold or silver threads called the zari work. Many a times after the weaving of these silk sarees, they were further embellished with various types of embroideries, pearls and precious stones. Though with passing time, making of Indian silk sarees is moving to mechanical looms and artificial fibers, it is the handloom silk sarees that are still popular with Indian women who prefer them for special occasions like weddings and other grand social events.
