Kasavu – for the uninitiated – is a gold and cream pattu saree from Southern India, typically Kerala. This saree is a take from traditional Mundum Neriyathum – a saree type that was supposed to be draped on only the lower part of the body.
The beautiful gold and cream saree and combination is extremely popular as well as graceful, and is worn by many South Indian brides. It is also a popular wedding saree, and is worn by many females, during functions, wedding ceremonies and festivities like Onam. Recently this saree and color combination has become very famous and much coveted.
Talented actress Tabu took this Kasavu love a step further, when she along with other super popular (yesteryears’) actresses from the South Indian film industry. While the amazing actresses, draped in similar gold and cream silk sarees, looked statuesque, the whole aura looked straight out of a temple.
