About Parsi Gara
Dress365days brings the regalia of the ancient Parsi tradition in the form of Parsi embroidered Dupatta suits and Sarees(Garas) The Parsi Gara embroidery dates back to the 650 AD wherein Persian women took to wearing Indian clothing especially sarees. The parsi gara embroidery is result of inter-cultural amalgamation where the fabric was from China and the embroidery was heavily influenced by India's Hindu and Iran's Zoroastrian cultures. Earlier mostly worn by the Parsi community the parsi embroidered clothing has gained popularity among all. Parsi gara clothes are inspired by the flora and fauna around us. Geometric designs are rarely used. These are fully hand embroidered by highly skilled artisans to make a surreal masterpiece.
Gara Embroidery takes 2450 manhours to complete one fully hand crafted saree. Lot of hard work and expertise goes into the making of each fabric,. Hence they are expensive. These do have a resale value. Hence considered as “Heirloom Pieces” and work of art. Dress365days strives consistently to keep getting timeless artworks that stand the test of time.
