Ask anyone and you will know that a saree is the perfect ethnic wear to pick for the winter season. Be it for an afternoon brunch, an office party, or a high tea, you have a lot to look up to with sarees. If you are trying to add a couple of winter sarees to your ensemble, why don’t you go for a screen print on cotton fabric? That way, you might combine the saree with winter clothing like woollen scarves or sequined jackets.
Sneaking into the past
Screen printing as a practice, dates back to the ancient Chinese Dynasty and the technique later gained popularity in Japan. Since then, the method has undergone a multitude of developments and changes. Today, artisans use stencils with photo images as against products made from cards or paper. It’s time you look beyond the old-day techniques of screen prints in cotton sarees. Do not confuse this attire with hand block printed cotton sarees as the technique of printing is entirely different. That is why Dora By Phoenix has a section of their website dedicated to winter-themed screen-printed sarees for you to differentiate and choose from.
Here are 6 screen printed sarees you can choose to personify the winter season.
