Kerala Women

By Chinga
The Sari is a wonder for people outside India. In India women of all states wear a Sari though its popular usage is in the southern part of India. The Sari is a 5 to 6 meter long cloth without any stitch on it. And it is the only such kind of dress in the world without any tailor work on it. Some people, especially the Tamilians 'close' it with a stitch so that both edges of the cloth is united and it takes shape of a ready-made dress. Women wear a blouse with the Sari. The style and design of blouses vary according to culture, area, age and season. Plenty of designs are experimented on blouse like sleeveless, full sleeve, short sleeve, V' neck, round neck, square neck, wide neck, etc.
The beauty is in the colours and variety... I for one was enchanted...

Saris are such elegant clothes, Isabel, and come in such wonderful colours. The ladies in V.2 seem fascinated by the boat, maybe it's the unusual colour Smile Carol

The festive colors of India always surprise me. They express their joy of life through their art and clothing, even in the less wealthy areas.
The size of that boat is very impressive....I wouldn't want to row that!

Saris are indeed very unique, Isabel and the wonderful colours and patterns make them very special.
I don't think women anywhere else in the world dress in such a way - but I bet many wish they could Smile
Beautiful images, all of them. I was entranced.
I wish you every happiness for 2014.

Beautiful images. Happy new year to you. I am from South India. My state is karnataka, in the neighborhood of Tamilnadu. I have a huge collection of sarees , which I wear to office regularly. They are very elegant and classy. You should attend Indian marriages to see the splendor of sarees. It is a great attire invented by some great people. It is nice that you liked our traditional attire.
