The Kasavu Cotton Saree: A Reason To Celebrate
Dating back to the early Buddhist era, the Kasavu saree is a traditional malayali garment worn on special occasions. It’s one of the most iconic outfits of the state of Kerala. Especially during Onam, you’ll see numerous women clad in these elegant, simple white and gold sarees.
A Kasavu saree set has three parts - the kara, which is the coloured border, the lower portion, called the mundu, and the upper part, known as the neriyathu. Traditionally, it was only known as mundum neriyathum but the addition of the golden zari or kasavu lent the name by which we know it today. The standard length of the modern Kasavu saree is 5.5 metres.
Back in the day, the mundu was tucked into the blouse. Nowadays, the Kasavu is worn with the pallu going over the shoulder. Once a simple white and gold garment, the Kasavu saree has taken a few cues from modern-day fashion design and incorporated it seamlessly into its traditional roots. The plain striped golden borders have now been replaced with patterns, and also have a few colours thrown into give this sophisticated saree a touch of glamour. Some sarees also have hints of cream and gold embroidery which subtly add to their appeal. Temples and peacocks have also found their way onto the designs on the pallu.
Kasavu: A Class Of Its Own
When you drape yourself in a Kasavu saree, it’s almost impossible for you to look anything short of gorgeous. The light, hand-woven cotton allows you to wear it for extended periods of time, making it perfect for those long pujas and weddings. With no flashy colours or designs, this saree oozes class and grace.
Taking Care Of Your Kasavu Saree
A saree is no ordinary piece of clothing, and your Kasavu saree is even more special. Here’s how you can keep your saree looking beautiful.
- The first thing you should do after buying your saree is to soak it in a bucket of hot water with some salt added to it, to remove residual starch and any excess colour
- Always wash your saree separately, to reduces the chances of colour from a different garment leaking onto the delicate cotton
- Never use strong detergents on your saree
- Always use an iron on medium heat and don’t apply too much force
- If your saree gets stained, give it to the dry cleaners; don’t use a brush as it may deteriorate the fabric
