Linen sarees

Handwoven linen zari sarees are a magnificent fusion of elegance, tradition, and contemporary style. These sarees embody the artistry of skilled weavers who meticulously craft them using intricate handloom techniques. The result is a luxurious and versatile garment that holds the charm of both linen's natural appeal and the shimmering allure of zari embellishments.


Handwoven linen zari sarees are a blend of two exceptional fabrics. Linen, known for its breathability and textured beauty, forms the base of the saree. This natural fiber ensures comfort even in warmer climates. Zari, on the other hand, is a form of metallic thread, usually made of silver or gold, skillfully woven into the fabric. The contrast between the earthy elegance of linen and the opulent glint of zari creates a stunning visual and tactile experience.

Artisanal Craftsmanship:

These sarees are a testament to the craftsmanship of traditional weavers who dedicate hours to creating intricate patterns using traditional handloom techniques. The zari work is intricately woven into the linen fabric, creating motifs that range from floral and geometric designs to elaborate borders. Each saree is a masterpiece, reflecting the weaver's skill and artistic expression.

Luxurious Drape:

The combination of linen and zari results in a saree that drapes beautifully, allowing for graceful movements. We at Chidiyaa makes sure that the lightweight nature of linen ensures that the saree is comfortable to wear while maintaining an ethereal and regal appearance.

Color Palette:

Our handwoven linen zari sarees come in an array of colors that range from understated neutrals to vibrant jewel tones. The choice of colors often complements the zari work, enhancing the overall appeal of the saree.


Styling handwoven linen zari sarees is a delightful exercise in combining the elegance of traditional Indian attire with the comfort and grace of linen fabric. 

1. Saree Selection:

Our handwoven linen zari sarees comes in variety of colours from yellow to pink rto red and black and many more.  Choose a color that complements your skin tone and the event you're attending. 

2. Blouse:

Opt for a contrasting blouse in a complementary color, keeping in mind the zari detailing on the saree. You can go for a short-sleeved, quarter-sleeved, or even a sleeveless  linen blouse with delicate embroidery or zari work to match the saree's elegance. You could also match it with mashru silk blouse.

3. Jewelry:

Linen zari sarees exude a blend of rustic charm and sophistication, so the jewelry should strike a balance. Traditional gold or antique jewelry with subtle embellishments will work well. A statement necklace, jhumkas (traditional Indian earrings), bangles, and a finger ring can enhance the overall look.

4. Hairstyle:

For a timeless appeal, consider tying your hair in a neat bun or an elegant low ponytail. You can adorn the hairstyle with flowers or hairpins to add a touch of femininity.

5. Draping Style:

Linen zari sarees drape beautifully due to the fabric's lightweight and breathable nature. You can opt for a classic front pallu drape or experiment with modern draping styles, depending on your comfort and the occasion.

Maintaining and caring for handwoven linen zari sarees is essential to ensure their longevity and preserve their intricate beauty. Here's a comprehensive description of maintenance and wash care tips for these exquisite sarees:

1. Storage:

Store your handwoven linen zari sarees in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight to prevent fading and discoloration. Using saree bags made of breathable fabric or cotton covers will help protect them from dust and moisture.

2. Avoid Heavy Accessories:

While wearing your linen zari saree, be mindful of heavy jewelry or accessories that could snag the delicate zari work. This will prevent any damage to the saree's embellishments.

6. Ironing:

Iron the saree on a low to medium setting, preferably using a cotton cloth over the zari work to avoid direct contact with the iron. This prevents the zari from melting or getting damaged due to excessive heat.

When folding the saree, avoid sharp creases along the zari work. Gently fold it to prevent the zari threads from breaking.

8. Keep Away from Moisture:

Linen can be susceptible to mildew in humid conditions. Avoid storing the saree in damp or humid areas.
