Raw Silk Salwar Suits
A sheen that spells simplicity and imperfections that add to beauty, raw silk is a coarse and richly lustrous fabric that has wooed women for thousands of years. Popularly known as ‘Paat’, ‘Resham’ and ‘Pattu’ in different regions of India, the fabric is one of the oldest in the world. Archeological discoveries in India suggest that the use of raw silk dates back to the Indus Valley civilization. In present times, the fabric still continues to charm women and is extensively used in ethnic wear garments like salwar suits. The affluence of raw silk: Skillfully woven from the leftover and broken filaments of mulberry cocoons, the fabric has small nubs all over its surface which distinguishes it from other types of silk. Being extremely strong, aesthetically appealing and high priced, it is widely used for making heavy salwar suits. With the inclination of the Indian society towards contemporary attire, the grandeur of this fabric is complemented with fusion silhouettes like indo-western suits, crispy trouser sets as well as modern lehenga kurta silhouettes. Stone studded laces, gota pattis and intricate traditional embroidery are used to adorn these silhouettes which are mostly preferred for weddings and formal parties. You can sport a black floor-length raw silk Anarkali having colorful floral patchwork complemented with a red rose as hair accessory for a vintage look at a cocktail party. A pink cold-shoulder raw silk lehenga suit would make a pretty pick for your dreamy pre-wedding photoshoot. Saree.com offers a lovely collection of trendy raw silk salwar suits to make your special moments picturesque with the latest in ethnic fashion. Increasing the life span of your suit: Since raw silk is made with natural protein fibers, it is prone to easy tarnishing and fading. Avoid exposing the garment to direct sunlight for long and keep staining products and chemicals away. Where the suit is embellished with zardozi, keep the garment wrapped in cotton or muslin cloth. A little care will ensure that your raw silk suit continues to mesmerize your audience for a longer period of time!
