The Art of the Saree

Sumitra Selvaraj, writer, TV producer, and founder of “Sarees And Stories”

The Art of the Saree

It’s Deepavali season, and sarees are everywhere. The saree, however, is much more than just something to wear. As a garment with a history of about 5,000 years, it also carries with it many of the Indian subcontinent’s artistic traditions. So we take the opportunity to talk about the saree as a living, wearable work of art, with Sumitra Selvaraj, founder of Sarees And Stories (@sareesandatories on Instagram), an online space for saree appreciation and discussion.
