Tamil Saris – Tradition and the Influence of Technology

   
 

In the Tamil Nadu State we see south India women that tie the Saris in a different way, based on religious trends. Even if the tie process is different, all the women are going to wear Tamil saris, which are of a length of 9 yards instead of the regular 6 that most saris show. Tamil saris are usually made out of silk and are worn on many special occasions. In order to tie this type of saris you will need to first tie it around the waist and then circle and fold it in order to have all folds positioned on the left leg. The rest of the Tamil Saris will be hanged around your left shoulder. This will bring in a need to circle it again around the waist and use a waistband on the left side. Tamil saris are not really popular in India due to the fact that it is difficult to wear them. Even so, they are always worn in weddings.

In Southern India we see women wearing special silk saris when they have to attend important events. Brahmin community is going to wear this sari differently and there will not be a long skirt attached. The Tamil Saris is longer at nine yards and has to be wound separately on the legs so that free movement is still achieved.

Kanchipuram Tamil Saris

Kanchipuram is a very well known mythological and historical village that is located 60 kilometers from Madras. It is really popular for the traditional Tamil saris that are created here. Here we will find professionals that have been weaving such silk saris for a long time now, with a tradition that lasts for over 150 years. In Kanchipuram we are also going to see many cotton saris being created together with silk-polyester blended ones. All is based on current market demands.

With the evolution of technology we also see the Tamil saris manufacturing process being modified. Nowadays we see special computerized Jacquard borders being included in such saris produced in Kanchipuram. Even if we see that materials and techniques are currently changing, we still have the same traditional aspect being maintained. All the traditions and customs of creating Tamil saris are maintained in Kanchipuram.

Where to Buy Tamil Saris

Not all of us can go to the villages where such saris are manufactured. The good news is that we can now buy them online. Contrary to what you might believe, there are dozens of high quality websites that are currently selling. You will be able to purchase from anywhere around the world and all that you need is a credit card. Also, there are many models that you can choose from, thus making it a lot more complicated to make a decision than it was in the past. A few years ago there were not many such saris that we might have chosen but this changed since technology evolved. There are dozens of great models and it would be a shame not to take advantage of the opportunity presented by online shops.
