A sari is a traditional seamless garment worn by Indian women, translated from Sanskrit as "a piece of cloth. It has grown in popularity thanks to famous Bollywood movies. Many oriental women dress up in saris for traditional events. There are more than 20 variations of this garment.
The color, embroidery and quality of the fabric of the sari have their own meaning. For example, according to tradition, white sarees were worn by widows, red by brides, etc. The embroidery on the sari, the patterns and the high quality of the fabric meant that its owner was a woman from a wealthy family. Modern sarees can certainly be called a true work of art.
