Indian Clothing Culture


Traditional Indian clothing dates back more than millennia. Different fabrics were chosen for different types of traditional dresses, mainly to suit the weather of the region. Art inspired traditional attire and gave birth to beautiful Sarees and ethnic suits and fabulous jewelry that reflected the rich cultural heritage of the people.

Another famous dress from this era is the Garara, also known as Sharara and when modified, Lehenga, which is a full-bodied skirt that is taking bridal fashion by storm.

The regional style and taste can be seen in Royal dresses of Rajasthan. The luxurious and rich costumes were designed beautifully by the special people during ancient times. Rich materials were used to design royal cloths from Gujarat and Varanasi, and woven and embroidered Kashmiri shawls were preferred by Royal men and women.

The Rajput women opted for fine Sarees and Lehengas when dressing, thus displaying unmatched luxury and affluence. Royal Rajasthani jewelry, from the days of the early Rajwada, still stands the test of times. Rajputana jewelry is most famous for its Kundan and Meenakari work. However, the Nathini is the most important piece of jewelry and a part of every bridal attire.
