FABRIC: Cotton fabric is a natural fabric and is used to make light weight sarees. This material is a favorite because it keeps the wearer cool and is easily washed. Cotton fabric is very popular in a tropical country like India, because of the soft twist imparted by the hand, maintains the hairiness of the yarn to an extent, which gives maximum comfort. Cotton is used to create beautiful saris and is an integral part of the sari weaving tradition of India.
