Take the Silk Route

Ask any Indian women what her saree means to her, her reply will be “it means the world”. And no woman in history has ever said no to shopping Silk sarees. The number of sarees one owns is never enough!

Sarees are popular because of their uniqueness, beauty and the reflection of the craftsman’s love for weaving! From having just traditional motifs, silks sarees have evolved to being a canvas, where the artist tries to implement new ideas and innovative techniques.

There will be a huge development in the designs if you compare your grandmother’s saree to your mother’s and your mother’s to yours! The transformation is massive but the interesting fact is that it is highly welcomed by women of all age!
New age women like their wardrobe to have a mix of everything and not just what’s trending. At Pothys, we have everything from ancient motifs like yazhi, manga, chakram to trending designs like ikat, chevron prints, and temple borders to a fusion of both!
