Story Behind the Art:
These saris are made by artisans in Banaras. One of the oldest cities in history, Banaras is steeped deeply in myth and has a rich textile heritage. The weaver community uses power-looms to make sari's and only 3 sari's are produced per day per power loom. The entire family is usually involved in the sari making process. The weavers, who often spend their lives bringing alive delicate designs, measure their existence in meters of silk, inch by inch-the sari and all it symbolizes is the fabric of their life.These traditions of using the women in the family-who are always only involved in the first aspect of the sari making-still continues.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.
The Sari was exactly what I was expecting. The shirt that was supposed to come with it was definitely rough (as in not even sewn), but I actually preferred it that way so I can sew my own custom fitting shirt.

I love everything about it, my only complaint is the picture online shows a top on the model so I was expeting to get a top which is not included. it is just fabric. also directions would have been nice. most people do not know owto wear the sari. I would buy 1 in ever color. its beaauuuuutiful!

Please tell us about the quality of the product. excellent
How accurate was the sizing? the length of the fabric is very good
the fabric is pretty, the color divine. it lacks weight and drape and so is not that suitable for a sari. it is stiff and tissue-like, doesn't want to keep a pleat. just the same, i will wear it for it's exquisite color.
This is a one size fits all sari. It's a piece of fabric that has to be wrapped around the body as shown in the picture. Please note that only the sari fabric and the unstitched blouse piece is being sold and the blouse has to be stitched by the customer according to their measurements.overstockcustomercare1 on Dec 19, 2012
