Fabrics Of India
India is a land of diverse cultures and heritage. Every region of this land has unique and beautiful customs to offer. With varied customs come varied apparels. A tropical country that has coastal areas, deserts, fertile lands, monsoon-rich states, hardworking farmers, and highly talented craftsmen undoubtedly has to be rich with a huge variety of fibers.
The fabrics and their making differ from region to region in this country. The extreme north of the country has freezing weather conditions and so offers the best of wools and warm clothes. The hot and humid weather of the south is best dealt with by its soft cotton and silk fabrics.
India celebrates Unity in Diversity in each and every aspect, including its fabrics. A country known for its big fat weddings, showcases its culture through heavy, gorgeous yet elegant royal sarees and dresses. These weddings are incomplete without Kanjeevaram and Banarasis.
The country’s indigenous fashion is not just restricted to women, even men enjoy it thoroughly. Today, India’s fashion and fabrics, both have gained international demand because of their spectacular beauty.
