The holy country, bred by the holy water of Ganges RIver, is the pure land of Western Heaven in the eyes of Buddhist believers, and one of the four birthplaces of the world's ancient civilization.

For the general public, the impression of India is mysterious and colorful, with special curries, strange forms of yoga, cheerful and charming dances, religiously devout religions, charming buildings, and Cobra sway gently in the flute.

However, wandering in the streets and lanes of India, what is most forgettable is the India woman's shadow passing through her eyes, the bright dots, deep eyes, a slightly brown complexion, and the light and graceful tradition of Fuku Sara.




It is a kind of complex that can not be abandoned in the hearts of women in India. The Indian interprets their understanding and pursuit of life, aesthetics and color with their unique creativity.

Some people say, "if Tagore's poetry has the highest idealism, then Sari will have the most beautiful woman's feelings."

For women in India, sari is no less than Chinese women's Qipao, Vietnamese women's own Dai, Japanese women's kimono, elegant and not luxurious, gentle and dignified, whether in bustling urban neighborhoods or in quiet rural alleys, no matter at major occasions of weddings and funerals, or in daily life at work and work, there is almost no glimpse of elegant and beautiful sari.


Although married women in India will gradually become physically rich, but as long as they wrap the sari, they are half concealed and half open, and the subtle beauty of posture and beauty makes life look sharp and frightened, making the famous Chinese painting master Zhang Daqian also sigh: India Sari is the most beautiful clothing in the world.



India Sari

Even when archaeologists could not give a convincing and convincing argument when and when they were born, people always believed that it was at least as old as India.

In the famous India epic Maha Bordo, it was mentioned that there was a sari embroidered with pearls at the time. According to this, more than 5000 years ago, sari clothes had already appeared.

And later, in the archeology of some ancient sculptures and murals, women's images depiction of Sari dressed in different geometric shapes have been found again and again, and their geometric shapes are rich and colorful, vividly reflecting the real life style and aesthetic taste of the ancient India people.

In 327 B.C., Alexander, the king of Macedonia, invaded the northwest of India by the great army of Macedonian king. Although it was short, it once sprouted the inexplicable idea of changing the clothing of India women, and eventually failed to trigger the tradition of India women who did not need needles to sew sari.


Among the folk legends, there is a story about the origin of sari.

It is said that in ancient India, there was a small well-known Weaver. He not only knew how to weave exquisite fabrics and satin, but also had the exquisite skills of making beautiful clothes. There were no more than second people to match him.


During his years of weaving and cutting, he accumulated rich experience. So he was no longer satisfied with ordinary clothes, and wanted to make new breakthroughs, but he was suffering from lack of inspiration and could not be handy.

One night, he had a strange dream, dreamed of a weeping woman, her sad tears, sparkling with silk like fluorescence; her instantaneous change of expression, as if the bright color of reincarnation; her beautiful long hair, winding like a neon, her light and charming figure, and the silk silk touching the general soft.

The waker wakes up like a dusk and suddenly sees the light, so he carefully studies the female's posture, plus his own ingenuity, and finally weaves a new type of clothing material. It needs a needle and thread to wrap up on a woman. It is a delicate and charming dress. He named it "Sari".

The good Sari knitted by skillful craftsmen was immediately sought after by people and spread far and wide, which directly promoted the development of India's weaving and silk industry.


Sari was not very popular in the early days. It only appeared at various religious ceremonies. After a long process of evolution, sari gradually became the usual costume of women in daily life. Nowadays, it has been promoted to India's clothing culture with the most traditional characteristics of India. It is a genuine India national costume.

The traditional clothing of women in India can be roughly divided into two categories: sari and side cover.


Sari is made up of three parts. Above is the short sleeved corset called Jim Poole. The "Betty Gore" petticoat of the lower body is a loose long dress, lined with sari, and the most wrapped outside is sari.

Sari wears a certain skill. It is more cumbersome and time-consuming. Later, the simplified Sari is adapted to the needs. This is the side cover ratio, also known as the simple dress.

Parkabi is also a suit. It is made up of long knee gown "Kami", trouser from below knee, "joudal" and a scarf called "dabar Da", which is about three meters long. It is said to be an ordinary costume of India Punjab women.

Today, with the popularity of western style clothes, the new women in India inevitably have the trend of T-shirts and jeans. But this does not shake the mainstream position of sari. Mrs. Indira Gandhi, a prime minister of India, always appears in front of people in a white Sari image wherever she lives.

Married women are the biggest fans of sari, while unmarried working women are simply dressed and dressed in side cover.


Sari is not so mysterious. The ancient Sari was originally a wide belt decorated with precious stones, and the navel was seen around it. Modern Sari has become the main garment of women in South Asia.

In short, it is a large piece of clothing, usually made of cotton, yarn, silk, cloth, wool, nylon and blended fabric, and so on. The texture is light and thin. The colors are different, or gorgeous or elegant. Besides the single solid colors such as orange, Zhu Hong, sapphire blue, silver and white, there are many colors mixed with each other. There are many decorations on the fabric surface, embroidered with traditional lace patterns, such as lace, gold patterns and various traditional patterns, such as auspicious flowers and birds, geometric figures and so on.


Sari is often worn with a short sleeved jacket, Qiao Li and a loose long Petticoat Skirt.

The way to wear Sari is to wrap part of it around the waist and fold out a few ruffle, then attach the upper part to the waist of the skirt, and the rest part of the chest is left to the left shoulder or head, then hang on the left back or hang on the left arm.

India girls began to wear Sari when they were twelve years old, and the bride wore green Qiao Li and red sari according to their traditional habits.

Sari has not much difference in shape and style, and it wins solely by the texture, color and style of the base material.

Sari is gorgeous, but the India people are very fond of beauty. Therefore, the head, neck, shoulders, ears, wrists, fingers, ankles and even the nose rings are all decorated with gold and silver ornaments with gleaming lights.


There are more than 1000 ways to wear sari. The most common way to wear is to put one end in the waist to form a knot, then put the cloth around the waist three to four circles. This depends on the weight and weight of the individual. It's a bit like wearing a bath towel instead of wearing a bath towel. Finally, the remaining part is taken from the chest to the shoulders and ends around the head.

The best hairstyle is the middle score and the bun is pulled out, which is more beautiful for India women.

In addition, there is also a corset, which is a cotton tight garment suitable for the color of sari. The length is up to the waist, and the sari is to show the waist. The cuff is generally 1/2 of the upper arm.

It is said that India women love to wear Sari made of Chinese silk. Although it is more expensive than India's domestic silk, many famous brand manufacturers in India are happy to produce this product and have obtained high profits from it.



HERMES limited edition of the famous India Sari

As early as the 2008 spring and summer season, Hermes has launched a fashion series with Sari as inspiration.

India women may wear western style clothes at work, but they will wear a five - and a half - sized sari in marriage and other formal occasions.


Bertrand Michaud, President of Hermes India, said, "this represents part of our efforts to communicate with India culture and the elegance of India women."

He said, "we are all committed to hoping to pay tribute to the tradition of India", but he said there is no plan to add this series to the long-term supply of the company for the time being.

There are 28 sari, one of which sells for $6120, while the other one sells for $8158, which makes it possible for India talents who are not rich or expensive.

All Sari is designed in Paris and uses a variety of fabrics.

Its launch is in line with the company's desire to win new markets in different markets.
