For centuries half and half saree has been favorite clothing in southern India, but over few years, this fashionable saree has ruled the country and now has become a staple outfit for celebrations.
A half half saree is an innovation that has been made to the original saree, which is a rectangular fabric at least 5 meters in length. The half half saree is so named because of the contrasting color of one half of the saree with the other half. While the elements of draping this saree remain the same, the color schemes are dual in nature and are meant to contrast each other.
These types of sarees are very popular as Indian party wear and a number of women can be seen wearing them on occasions such as weddings, graduations and anniversary parties.
Bold color combinations such as pink and green, purple and yellow, red and black, cyan and black, royal blue and rani pink are popular choices amongst buyers.
Half half sarees in net, faux georgette, crepe, viscose, art silk, faux chiffon, brasso and even velvet are sought out by Indian buyers.
Jacquard, zari work, patch border work, zardozi, resham embroidery, stone work and sequin work, appliqué are a few of the many embellishments that may go on a half half saree.
