Silk saris are one of our most prized possessions in our wardrobe. Especially, the ones passed on to us. The gorgeous vintage silk saris.

While draping silk sarees, it’s important to understand that the length of the sari and the pallu is important. Too long of either and your saree is sweeping the floor. Silk sarees are expensive and prone to damage and the worst thing you can do is to leave it dragging on the floor. Wouldn’t you agree my friends ?

Follow these 2 easy tip next time you drape your silk saree . It will make a world of difference.

1. When draping, make sure the bottom of the saree is just slightly almost at floor level. Not too low and not too high. Remember, silk sarees are heavy and eventually the drape will come down a bit.
2. When measuring the length of the pallu, bring the fabric to the front and make sure it doesn’t go beyond the knees level or slightly below. This way, your open pallu won’t drag on the floor.

These 2 simple tips will give you a clean look and protects your sarees too.
