Since time immemorial, Silk sarees have been an epitome of Indian tradition and culture. It is the perfect canvas to flaunt the creative energy and talent of artists and artisans of India. This versatile fabric adds a touch of glamour, sophistication and elegance to any outfit.
We all have treasured sarees of our mother and grandmother which are too out-dated to be used. Be it Kanjivaram or Banaras silk or Chanderi silk, these sarees carry memories and showcase talent of weavers from all across India.
To keep intact the charm and beauty of these sarees, Deepkala Silk has tips and tricks to remodel and reuse old silk sarees.
1. Redesign Old Sarees
Adding new borders and designs to silk sarees will give it a trendy, fashionable look. Depending on the design, colour and style of the saree, you can use beads, Kundans, Zardosi etc. We can also revamp the style by adding French lace, Zari motifs and sequins.Pair it with matching accessories and we have got a stylish, graceful silk saree.
2. Anarkali suits
Use the material from the old sarees to re-stitch into a beautiful Anarkali suit or a Floor Length suit. Kanjivaram silk is perfect for Anarkali style outfits. The heavy borders and patterns give the suit an ethnic, distinguished look.
For women who prefer Kurtis and Salwar Kameez, the traditional Banaras Net sarees are an ideal option for remodelling. Add lace and other embellishments to the Kurti to give it a contemporary look. Old Kanjivaram sarees can also be used to make festive, designer Kurtis.
4. Lehengas / Half Sarees
Converting old sarees into Lehengas and half sarees has been practised from the olden times.
The Dupatta for these outfits can also be designed out of the saree.
5. Palazzo Pants
Sarees with broad Zari borders can make very good Palazzo pants. Kameez, Churidar pants can also be designed with silk sarees.
Making skirts out of old silk sarees is very easy. The charm of the design and the quality of the fabric will give the skirt a dignified ethnic look.
In these ways, Silk Sarees can also be used to make hand bags, laptop and mobile covers, jackets and dupattas and more. Unleash creativity to make the most of the silk sarees inside your wardrobe.
