The everyday all-day fashionable material — Luscious Linen !
No attire can beat the traditional six yards of sheer elegance called the sari. This is an intrinsic part of Indian culture and its appeal will never fade.
In case you haven’t noticed yet, linen saris are making a statement and have emerged as an excellent alternative to silks and cottons. Just look around and you can see linen shirts, stoles, scarves, skirts, blouses, trousers, tablecloths, bedding …the list goes on . Linen saris are making their way into the wardrobe of the stylish Indian woman and are no longer relegated to menswear. Several celebrities like Sonam Kapoor, Nandita Das, Vidya Balan etc.. have been setting the trend already with this gorgeous material. A woman’s choice of saris can give her a distinct identity.
Made from the stalk of a flax plant, this natural fibre comes in all colors and hues. Linen is invading the textile market in a major way because it has many attractive properties .Linen is an extremely easy material to drape and very comfortable to wear all day. It is lightweight and perfect for our climate and can be worn throughout the year. It is highly absorbent and a breathable material that pampers the skin. Since linen is a good conductor of heat, it allows more airflow and keeps you feeling fresh all day. Because of this, Linen is perfect for summer wear and is especially suitable for our hot & humid Indian summers as the body will be free of moisture. Also, linen is a biodegradable material since it is made from natural fibre. This is another reason why we love linen here at byhand because we are all about being eco-friendly.
Maintaining your linen saris is not a hassle. Linen gets softer with each wash and is a dream to wear! It gives you a regal feel and it is considered to be one of the most luxurious natural fabrics .
At byhand, we pride ourselves on using only 100% natural dyes. Linen takes to natural dyes easily and you can see several saris in different shades as well as beautiful pastel colors in our collection. Linen is a strong material.
