The Indian Sari, believe it or not, is more than years old. It was first mentioned in Rig Veda, the oldest surviving literature of the world, written somewhere around BC.

The Sari, originally intended both for men and women, is probably the longest incessantly worn dress in the history of mankind. John Saris (c. – ) was chief merchant on the first English voyage to Japan, which left London in He stopped at Yemen, missing India (which he had originally intended to visit) and going on to Java, which had the sole permanent English trading station (or 'factory') in Asia.

The saree is one of the world’s oldest and perhaps the only surviving unstitched garment from the past. Over the millennia, it has not only become a sensuous, glamorous all-time-wear for women, but also the ‘canvas’ for weavers and printers to create artistic weaves, prints and jewelled or gold-silver embellishments.

The saree is one of the most traditional and celebrated clothing items from India. It is considered by many to be the quintessential Indian garment for women. Today, the sari remains as popular as ever in India and has even achieved a considerable amount of international acclaim. It boasts of rich history like India.
