And this is how a saree with four pallus would look like.
From the description:
Our new Zip & Match range lets you change your outfit so quickly that people will think there are two of you. With matching pallus in various designs and hues that can be unzipped and replaced in seconds, you will always be dressed for the occasion.
Zip & Match Sarees are made out of pure handloom silk.from
From Sri kumaran stores.
I am not so sure about this one. I know zipper technology has advanced a lot from the days of metal teeth, and I know one can get very smooth movements with zipper but I am not convinced that it is ready for a saree yet. I just don’t think the fluidity of fabric is there yet.
I have experimented with Velcro to change pallus but it has double the problems; the seam doesn’t come out even and it loses it fluidity.
There is room for improvement and innovation here, but zippers is not an answer.
By the way, I am not opposed to a zippered saree with Goth or Punk look; I expect Puneet Nanda of Satya Paul will show it sooner rather than later, and I can’t wait to see it.
