The practice of weaving Cotton sarees in India is centuries old.

Cotton sarees are a must have especially in the hot and humid climate of India as the cotton saree is a very comfortable piece of clothing in summers. Cotton sarees are also multipurpose as they can be worn as daily wear, office wear or party wear.
The cultivation and weaving of cotton first started around 5000 BC in the Indian subcontinent. The earliest known saree depiction was in the form of statue of an Indus valley female priest wearing the saree. It is believed that it is the Mesopotamian civilisation from where cotton and the art of weaving it into fabric came to India. Women started wearing cotton sarees in different draping styles after that.
Saree is perhaps the only unstitched garment that is used from the ancient times and surviving till today. The history and origin of sari dates back to the beginning of human civilization. It has been stated that women in the Indus valley civilization used to wear a long piece of cloth draped like a trouser. Cotton sarees were used in the early times and these were woven with hands using cotton yarn.
