Styles of Saree Draping
Maharashtrian/Kache – This drape (front and back) is very similar to that of the male Maharashtrian dhoti. The center of the sari (held lengthwise) is placed at the center back, the ends are brought forward and tied securely, then the two ends are wrapped around the legs. When worn as a sari, an extra-long cloth is used and the ends are then passed up over the shoulders and the upper body. They are primarily worn by Brahmin women of Maharashtra, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu.
In the state of Maharashtra the traditional sari is nine yard long. This sari does not require a petticoat or slip, and is more like a pant with the sari accentuating the derriere. Different parts of the country also prefer certain texture of sari . This preference is mainly due to the weather and availability of the fabric in that region.
