The origins of the saree date back to the Indus Valley Civilisation, one of the oldest cultures in the world. But time has failed to diminish the popularity of this beautiful Indian garment. The six-yard drape is firmly anchored in the country’s culture and continues to stand as a proud national symbol. If you’re in Delhi and want to buy a saree, these are the best shops to visit.

Raw Mango

Raw Mango can be credited with popularising the humble, and often ignored, handwoven saree by lending it a contemporary touch. The brand employs around 500 artisans, and it takes at least 10 days to create a simple saree by hand. Raw Mango sarees have also been presented at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London and the Museum of Modern Art, New York.

Pratham: The Saree Courtyard

Pratham is a one-of-a-kind brand that has found a way to promote the traditional Pichhwai art form through sarees. Pichhwai art uses paintings to narrate the life story of Lord Krishna and is mostly found in the town of Nathdwara in Rajasthan. What Pratham does is print these beautiful paintings onto handwoven linen sarees, and the brand has, unsurprisingly, found many takers.
