Designer Sarees

There's a certain indescribable joy in shopping for ethnic clothes. The delectable colors, magnificent designs, a plethora of gorgeous fabrics - they all make it a delightful experience. The diversity of Indian fashion greatly adds on to this experience. Sarees, lehengas, anarkalis - there's so much to browse and choose from. Pure Elegance carefully handpicks a sublime selection that aims to bring you the best of all the above. The options are galore when it comes to colors, styles, silhouettes and more. We strive to cater to, and satiate every ethnic style palette.
Sarees are one of the most popular garments in Indian fashion and it's not hard to see why. With an air of effortless elegance, they exude a fluid charm and flatter all body types. Typically measuring between five to nine yards, they are draped around by the wearer and don't commonly come in a ready made drape. The body of the style is tied at around at the waist and the end bit of the sari, known as the pallu, is usually brought across the chest and over the shoulder. Since the pallu is often the most visible and free part of the saree, it is commonly decorated with dazzling patterns and designs. A traditional Indian saree is worn with a blouse on top and a petticoat underneath the sari. Many regions in India have their own draping styles, however, the most popular one is the 'Nivi style' from the state of Andhra Pradesh.
Sarees are incredibly versatile and can be worn from the office, to the dinner after, to of course, elaborate festive occasions and weddings. Walk into the Monday morning meeting in a grey khaddi saree if you're looking to impress with ethnic simplicity. A lime green chiffon sari is a lovely choice for a casual luncheon. When the family dinner parties beckon, a floral linen saree is sure to have you looking sublime.  For weddings zari woven sarees or embellished sarees in hues of red, orange or pink are perfect picks. 
The styles of saris can be broadly divided into three - handloom woven sarees, embroidered and embellished sarees and printed sarees. Woven sarees are classic choices that are usually made in silk and cotton fabrics. Evergreen and widely loved, they can never go out of style. Embroidered and embellished sarees are great for times you want to take it up a notch. Plain thread embroidery is great for simpler occasions while sarees with kundan work, mirror work, and embroidery in golden or silver thread works best for grand occasions like weddings. If bold is your preference but you do want to keep it light, a printed saree is just what you should be reaching out to.
When it comes to saris, there are certain styles that are wardrobe essentials. A vibrant Banarasi sari, a resplendent kanjivaram silk saree, a charming georgette saree - they are all eternally alluring. When you look to buy sarees online in the USA, you'll find a wide variety of all these at our Indian wear store - Pure Elegance.

It is her heritage in motion and she passes it down to her daughters and daughters in law with utmost love and affection as a reminder of her love and blessings for their future.

One of the most prized and loved types of Indian sarees is the Tussar saree – a variety of silk saree which has a pride of place in every discerning saree lover’s wardrobe, without fail. It is a variety of Silk sarees and has some unique and interesting aspects which we are exploring here, as you take your pick of your favourite Tussar Silk saree to be added to your long-term collection.

Once known by its Sanskrit name – Kosa Silk, the Tussar silk saree and Tussar fabric have long become synonymous with genteel sophistication and refined taste. It is a unique and lovely addition to any Indian woman’s wardrobe and for sure its resplendent shine, its soft, undulating grace and supreme cool comfort is unmatched by any other variety of saree.


What are the benefits of Tussar Silk saree and what makes them so sought after?

The secret charm of the Tussar Silk saree lies in the material that it is made of. Tussar Silk is a different kind of silk than traditional mulberry silk and it is highly prized and appreciated for some of its properties that set it apart from the usual varieties of silk available in India and elsewhere. To learn more in detail let us see how Tussar silk is produced and what makes it so different.


What is Tussar Silk?

Produced mainly in the Indian states of Jharkand, West Bengal and Bihar, Tussar Silk is produced from the larvae of different kinds of silkworms of the moth genus that are found in the wild forests. Usually the other silkworms that are traditionally the source of silks are known to feed on Mulberry trees. Mulberry trees are hard to maintain hence the mulberry silkworm is equally costly to rear. The silk produced by the Mulberry silk worm is also known as Katan silk and is often finer and smoother in appearance with a natural off-white color.

However, the Tussar silkworm is different in genus and is known to feed on other trees such as sal, saja and arjun, instead of Mulberry.

The Tussar silk moth belongs to the genus of Antherea Mylitta and is a unique natural wonder in itself. It is said to resemble a mirror due to its unique circular markings on the wings.

These moths have single shell silkworm cocoons which are oval and to extract the silk the cocoons are boiled. Boiling the cocoon softens the silk fibres making them easy to extract and collect.

Since it was realised by environmentalists and wild life conservationists that boiling of the silk larvae to extract silk from their cocoon is a cruel way of silk production, now a days many units extract the silk from the cocoon only after the larvae have matured into moths and left the cocoon as a natural process.

These remaining cocoons are then boiled without the larvae and the silk hence produced is certified as cruelty free. A common name for cruelty free silk these days is ‘Ahimsa Silk’ and buyers who are interested in buying cruelty free silk can ask for ‘Ahimsa Silk’ products. In the recent years, many environmentalists have championed the cause of Ahimsa Silk.

Most of these Tussar Silk cocoons are collected from the forest, hence imparting the moniker – ‘wild silk’ to Tussar silk.


What is the difference between a Tussar silk and pure silk?

As a result, Tussar silk is more textured than the common ‘mulberry’ or katan silk. It is also characterised by shorter and thicker fibres which makes it more durable. In fact, the natural dull gold sheen of the Tussar Silk fibre is preferred for its natural beauty which imparts the finished fabric a lovely two-tone sheen and a refined finish no matter whether the saree is printed, woven or adorned with zaree.

Another property of Tussar is its high porosity. This property makes the fabric lightweight, airy, cool and comfortable for summer use. This is why Tussar is not just a popular textile for producing sarees, it is also high in demand for making other garments such as Kurtas, Anarkalis, and even western style dresses and tops.

No wonder then that there is always a high demand for Tussar Silk fabrics and Tussar silk sarees online.


Where can I source original Tussar Silk Sarees?

India is the second largest producer of Tussar Silk and much of this production is done in Bhagalpur which is the traditional nerve centre of traditional methods of Tussar Silk production. Interestingly Bhagalpur is also known as the Silk-City of India and is famous for its variety of silk also known as Bhagalpuri silk, the world over.

Here it is largely practiced by tribals who have been practicing traditional methods of Tussar Silk production and weaving.

The tribals in these areas have been practicing Tussar sericulture for many generations. They employ traditional and authentic methods of silk production and weaving which have been passed down to them along the generations. With dedication and hard work these tribal silk producers most of whom are women, make silk fabrics and sarees by the hand.

Instead of employing powered looms they use the handloom and this results in painstakingly produced Tussar yarns and fabrics. Some of these fabrics can take up to 10 days to produce from start to finish, but the time consumed ensures that the end product is matchless in quality and superior finish.

The high quality of the Tussar silk fabric and Tussar silk sarees produced here are also exported owing to a great demand for these products overseas. The great thing about this is that now instead of waiting to make a trip all the way to Bhagalpur or hoping for someone visiting Bhagalpur to buy you a precious Bhagalpuri Tussar saree, all you need to do is to pick your favourite Tussar silk saree online and order it to be delivered right to your doorstep no matter where you are in the world.


What are places where we get silk sarees at low prices?

Today with the matchless benefits of global demand in markets and the digitization of the market and retail place, buying a Tussar silk saree at low prices is no more a challenge.

As Tussar silk is the only silk which is produced by silkworms that do not need to feed on mulberry, the cost of producing the Tussar Silk comes down considerably.
