saree jargon: zari zardosi pitta and diamonte

saree jargon: zari zardosi pitta and diamonte    saree shopping designer saree

This saree is pithily described as:

A Ruby Red rich banarasi zari buti saree drape with nine yard contrasting Green woven encrusted border n zardosi pitta n diamonte worn with two tone Copper Green banarasi brocade choli with highlighting.

OK, do you understand what this means?

Let me try to decipher each word:

Red Ruby – color of the main part of the saree – primary color

Banarasi – Banarasi silk (not always but one starts with that assumption)

zari – metalic thread

buti – small repeated design on the saree

zari buti – small repeated pattern created with metallic thread

9 yards contrasting border – saree is six yards, but the border covers the width of the saree on one side (and a little bit on the other side)- so the total BORDER LENGTH is 9 yards

zardosi – metallic thread embroidery. Zardosi is a form of embroidery done by golden metal wires. For this form, embroidery saree is first tucked in a frame an then number of “kaarigars” design beautiful intricate patterns on the fabric through metal threads. This is an very timetaking and hard work. Zardosi sarees are not only famous in India but it has a vast demand in countries outside India too.

Pitta work – a type of embroidery, rich and detailed

diamonte – shiny or iridescent, as if covered in or made of diamonds; another word for rhinestones

encrusted – border is fully covered with embroidery and design work using multiple techniques

contrasting green – the color of the diamonte or the embroidery is green which contrasts with the base color and shows up better.

two tone copper – green choli : the blouse is two tones, copper and green

banarasi brocade :Brocade is richly decorative shuttle-woven fabrics, often made in colored silks and with or without metallic threads.

choli with highlighting – the blouse fabric has certaib high lighting giving it a translucent texture and color

The single shoulder strap blouse:

Bold ethnic traditional colors, old world zardosi work mix it with a sexy backless blouse!

I am not absolutely thrilled with it; not every saree needs to and nor should it be paired with a backless saree blouse.
