Beautiful and Powerful Style Statement - The Saree

Women who love the saree know that the most beautiful sarees are found in South Asia, and for those who have the taste for a chic modern look, their perfect match can be found in Sri Lanka. The modern Sri Lankan sarees are uber minimal, beautifully coloured and crafted in a variety of methods such as handloom or batik. This minimal look is perfect for every woman from the home maker to the corporate professional. The prices are right for designer, handcrafted sarees.

Many women choose to wear a saree in South Asia, as it is a statement of professionalism, style and a value for tradition. A woman who wears a saree can be found in a board room leading a large corporation, at a family wedding or even a driving her kids to school. The designer sarees made in Sri Lanka are created with this modern woman and her diverse roles in mind.


Sarees in Sri Lanka are made with simple yet powerful elements such as colour, composition and texture. Take for instance, colors that have been inspired by the sun. Choose a saree in different shades of yellow with sky blue trim. Consider a lovely black saree perfect for evening wear. Earth tones of browns and golds is a great outfit for working at the office. Need a fun outfit to wear to the game? There is a sports jersey inspired saree for that occasion. The diverse nature of the saree is well celebrated by Sri Lankan designers.

Sarees in Sri Lanka are like no other in the world due to their minimal style. The fabric tend to be 100% cotton or a cotton blend. These amazing pieces of fashion need to be cared for in a delicate manner and therefore need to be given special care. On the rare occasion that you wish to return your saree, it is an easy process whether you live in Sri Lanka or anywhere else in the world.
