Indian Clothing

People in India wore mostly cotton clothing. India was the first
place where cotton was grown, even as early as 2500 BC in the
Hardpans period.
By the Aryan period, women wore one very long piece of cloth called
a sari, that they wrapped around themselves in different ways.
The word “sari” comes from a Sanskrit word that just means cloth.
Saris are first mentioned in the Vedas, about 600 BC. Wealthy
women wore saris made of silk, but most women wore cotton ones.
There were many different ways of draping saris – to dress up
women wore them like skirts with a top part thrown over their
shoulder or worn over their heads as a veil. Working women often
pulled their sari up between their legs to make a sort of pants.
Women who were fighting with the army tucked in the top part of
the sari in the back, to free up their arms for fighting. Most saris
were five or six yards long, although some saris were nine yards.
INDIA
Younger women generally wore brightly colored saris, but widows
and other women in mourning wore only white ones.
