If we see in all parts of the world and!look for an unstitched garment which meets our requirements we can only find it in the “Great and Traditional INDIA”. An unstitched garment which beholds a great history and story in itself, Yes my friends, that’s right, I am talking about the traditional wear of all times “The Saree“. It is a garment which has been a success in the past century and is still popular in the modern era and will go on to be so for our future generations too. This garment is an all time favorite of ladies in India for every important ceremonies like marriage, meetings etc.
The tradition of saree flourished in the ancient Indus Valley Civilisation between 2800BC-1800BC and it was first draped by the priest of Indus Valley Civilisation. As the time passed by the use and wear of saree become so popular that in todays world it has made a good space in our hearts and is favourite to each and every single lady in India.
This beautiful attire always fascinated me. It reminds me my childhood days when I used watch my mother drape a saree every morning. That scene is etched in my heart even today, I remember how beautiful my mother used to look after wearing a simple cotton saree!
Usually I don’t wear it in my daily life as I’m not an expert at wearing and carrying it as my mother. Honestly speaking, I’m quite bad at it. But still the desire of wearing a saree and looking like my mother always motivates me to try it out on special occasions. It makes you look splendid and elegant even in crowds.
A few weeks back, I was asked to try a saree by Sakhi Fashion. Sakhi Fashion..this name seemed interesting to me.When I checked the website, I was thrilled to see the wide and vast range of Indian wears. It was a complete online ethnic portal for women. They have such a great range of sarees that it is quite difficult to pick one from among them. I don’t have much experience of online saree shopping. But on seeing the wonderful range of those designer sarees I really enjoyed selecting one for myself. Not only sarees but also a wide range of suits, Anarkali and other accessories as well. You can also find Readymade sarees & dresses here. The best part is the affordable price tag and international shipping.. There are options to stitch and design the suits,blouse and petticoat.
In the mirror of my own experience
When I was browsing the website, I was pleasantly surprised to learn that entrepreneurs behind Sakhi Fashions are a mother-daughter duo! Chandra and Neeta Rajendran have been in the Indian ethnic wear business for quite some time and over the years they seem to have built Sakhi into a one stop shop for all your fashion needs. I also knew that they have physical stores in Bangalore and Hyderabad.
They are really an inspiration for all women. To see the varieties of design and style of sarees, no doubt that they have a bright and shining future in this business. I’m sure that very soon, they will be one of the top name among Indian saree designers.
Coming back to the range of sarees, Sakhi Fashions has a wide range of sarees for both formal occasions as well as for daily wear. I love their Kanchi sarees and it’s so nice that they have a section apart. Kancheepuram silk sarees always remind me the beautiful Indian actress Rekha. Whereas Kanchi have a rich history behind them. Draping a Kanchi saree instantly gives an elegant and royal look to any woman. No doubt, Kanchi sarees have always been on the wishlist of any saree connoisseur and in many families, the Kanchi sarees are like legacy. Those of mothers and grandmothers are preserved and passed on from one generation to the next with love. It’s really amazing.
Now you all will be curious to know about my selection of saree from there! No, It was not Kanchpuram saree, in fact, I selected a Lace crossover designer saree. When I saw that saree, I instantly fell in love with its design, color combination and style. It’s made of lace like material and a color combination of pink and beige. The concept of this glamorous Lace saree is unique The Crossover”. The special feature of this designer saree is that the shoulder portion features elegant beige lace with floral motifs design further enhanced by Beige Tussar Border. The saree body details Pink and Beige Net Kali design With Embroidery & Stone work with a touch of Tussar border add grace and elegance.
Have a look on my Lace crossover designer saree.
After placing the order it took 10-15 days for the product to reach me. Normally the delivery takes 3-4 days but as I had chosen the blouse stitch option, it took longer. Yes, Sakhi Fashions even tailor a blouse for you according to your specifications!
For that they sent me a blouse measurement chart as well as a list of choices for various parts of the blouse such as the style of the neckline, length of sleeves etc.I had given my measurement to them but I had some doubts about the fitting. But when I tried it on, I was pleasantly surprised to see the perfect stitching of the blouse.They had stitched the blouse beautifully.
The product was safely kept in a beautiful package.
Overall I’m completely satisfied and happy with Sakhi Fashions. I’ve fallen in love with quality of the saree and its style. It was really a great experience with this website. The quality of the fabric,color, and design of the product are absolutely the same as shown in the images.Their customer service personnel were very polite and understanding. Shipping within India is a complementary service. SakhiFashions ships worldwide to various locations. It’s so easy to place your order here. The website has a page dedicated to the return policy and that is very helpful if you want to return your product. I’ll highly recommend this amazing online store to my readers.
