The word sari/saree is derivative of the Prakrit word Sadi, with the original term being the Sanskrit word Sati meaning “a piece of cloth“.

The images highlight Devi Yamuna in a saree like a garment that drapes her waist, covers her torso while the aanchal is wound around her arms while the second image highlights another woman in a saree like a garment with perfect drapes, thus framing a woman. Apart from this, the third image also highlights Ajanta frescoes showing women in perfect drapes covering her torso and lower back. In ancient India, the men wore a turban on their heads, with a piece of cloth around their waists and shawl around their shoulders, while the women also draped a cloth around their upper torso with blouse. The garments were catered keeping in mind the climate, trends and the taste of the time.

Thus, in this way, Saree started ruling in the era of Indian Fashion.
