Here is a list of type of silk sarees that are recommended for summers:
Now let’s take a look at how would they turn out when woven into a saree. You may choose your pick from the options given below.
1. Mulberry Silk Bagh Print Saree
Bagh Print is a famous handicraft from Madhya Pradesh. Skilled craftsmen use natural pigments and hand blocks to create the loveliest of designs on a variety of textile products.
This mulberry silk features pretty Bagh Prints and will make for a beautiful summer outfit.
2. Eri Handloom Silk Saree
Eri is one of the two types of silks from Assam (the other one being muga). It takes its name from the Assamese word ‘era‘ which means castor. Why castor? Because the silkworms feed on castor plants.
Eri silk is strong and durable. Now check out this pretty saree made from the Assam Eri Silk. Buy one and you can rest assured that it will last you for a long time to come.
An interesting trivia about Eri Silk. This silk is called the fabric of peace when the silk is made without killing the silkworms. The variant of silk is then aptly named ‘Ahimsa Silk’.
3. Muga Silk Blended Saree
Now check out this saree made from the other Assam Silk – Muga. Unlike Eri, which is a coarse fabric, Muga has a polished texture. It used to be the choice of fabric of the Assamese royalty.
The best part – like Eri, Muga too is a durable fabric. So buy one and it will give you company for many, many years.
4. Mashru Saree
You may be aware of the Hindi word – ‘mishrit‘. It means mixture. The Mashru fabric takes its name from the sanskrit word Misru because it is a handwoven mix of two textiles – silk and cotton.
5. Cotton Silk Saree
6. Chanderi Saree With Blouse
Another beautiful saree from Madhya Pradesh. It takes its name from the town called Chanderi, which is the traditional centre of production of this saree.
7. Green-Maroon Khadi Saree With Jamdani Detailing
Almost every Indian state has a beautiful saree tradition of its own. We have already seen two beautiful examples each from Assam and Madhya Pradesh. Let’s move a little further east to West Bengal now.
In 2016, Bangladesh received the GI status for Jamdani Sarees and Jamdani weaving has seen a revival in the past few years.
8. Magenta Silk Blend Kanjeevaram Saree
I guess the popular Kanjeevaram Sarees from Tamil Nadu need no further introduction. We picked this particular Kanjeevarm saree from the Myntra store, and you can pick it up today for a song.
9. Floral Organza Saree With Blouse
Organza is a sheer fabric, derived from silk. The past couple of years has seen a revival of interest in this fabric across the fashion world.
Pick this very pretty floral organza saree for the summer months. Look beautiful and stay cool.
10. Printed Kota Silk Saree
Let’s round up our collection of summer silk sarees with this colourful saree from Kota, Rajasthan. If it’s good enough to handle the Thar summer, it should be good enough for any other summer, so we thought.
