Silk is one of the oldest fabrics in India, it was only used in royal garments these days everyone are able to afford it, because of its cost-effectiveness and contemporary look. Printed silk refers to a length of silk yarn or a silk fabric, which consists of patterns and designs in the form of prints on them. Printed silk initially showcased a number of unusual motifs such as geometric prints, splash of color and lately introduced in fine art in India. The motifs and prints of printed silk is being influenced from Bollywood, pop-culture and creative modern art. You can see prints on silks that have diversified over the years and modern sarees and other ethnic Indian garments that are created specifically to cater to younger. What I noticed in printed silk is it is flawless, more versatile, lightweight, contemporary and a statement attire. Warli print(tribal art) is being incorporated in printed silk. Recent trends on printed silk being used in varies products such as suit pieces, dupattas, stoles, crop tops etc This is my mom's twenty-one year old saree, you can see in the portrait emerald green saree, you can see the flash of colors which are inspired by pop art, used colors and themes.
