The history of Saree
The word “saree” comes from the Sanskrit word “satika” which means piece of cloth. Aryan civilization started the practice of wearing Saree about 5500 years ago.
The word ‘shati’ has been around for a long time in the ancient Aryan civilization, so some people think that ‘shati’ is the main word of Saree. However, images from the ruins of non-Aryan civilizations such as the Indus Valley Civilisation shows the existence of saree-like clothing worn by women.
Manipuri saree holds Bangladeshi culture for over a hundred years. Manipuri sarees from the eastern region have domestic and foreign demand. If we look at the capital and its environs, we can see that Jamdani-Muslin, today’s Benaresi-Katan is an integral part of our tradition and culture
