  • The Pallu: Balance the leftover part of the saree with the endpiece. Wrap the Pallu just above your left shoulder to accentuate the long trail of fabric. The Pallu contains different ways of draping; you could select any of them based on your choice.   
  • Simple Pallu: By following this pleating, center the piece neatly and pin it tightly onto your left shoulder. It provides a designer with a ready-to-use tool to create a sophisticated as well as classic appearance.   
  • Butterfly Pallu: The last trim will be creating smaller pleats at the Pallu and putting them on like a butterfly wing on the shoulder. Pin them securely. This way, it gives the same look as the red bindi and is often used for parties and such.   


Maintaining Style: Taking Care of Your Kanjivaram Silk Sarees   

  • Dry Cleaning recommended: Dry cleaners have the expertise and equipment to handle delicate fabrics without causing harm.   
  • Water Wash: If you do hand-wash, use a mild detergent, cold water, and gentle techniques. Never wring or twist the saree; instead, roll it in a clean towel to remove excess moisture.   
  • Presence of Fragrances: Avoid spraying perfumes or deodorants directly on your silk saree. The chemicals can stain the fabric. If desired, spritz a light fragrance on your blouse.
