About Kasavu Sarees Online

Kasavu saree is the traditional attire of women in Kerala and it is hand-woven by experienced workers. It is cream in color and has a golden border. Kasavu saree is also known as Mundum Neriyathum. It consists of two pieces of garments. Mundu, is worn to cover your body from the waist to the toes. It is fastened at your waist. The Neriyaythu is the upper garment and covers the upper part of the body. It is very simple to carry and gives an elegance as well as traditional look. Malayalee women wear kasavu sarees on special occasions like new year, religious events and so on.

The history of kasavu saree takes us back to the Buddhist era. Slowly it spread to the southern parts of India and became prominent in Kerala. It is also found in Graeco Roman culture, where it was known as ‘Palmyrene’. Till 1970s, it was not worn as a typical saree. It is made of pure cotton and the material is very soft. So it is perfect to wear in the hot and humid climate of Kerala, and is easy to wash and maintain.

Nowadays the golden border is replaced with different kinds of zaris of varying colors. Regular kasavu blouses have now given way to designer blouses, which have become a hit with the younger generation. The upper clothing of the mundu, was tucked inside the traditional kasavu blouses in the past. But now they are worn as a saree with the pallu going over the left shoulder. This provides a sophisticated look to the wearer. The borders are designed with different colored threads and they contain ethnic and religious motifs designed with multi colored threads.
