The saree was first worn during the glorious Indus Valley Civilization. A 2800BC statue of a female priest depicts her in a saree. The name “saree” originated from the Sanskrit word ‘sattika’ and finds considerable mention in the Buddhist and Jain Scriptures. Interestingly, it was believed that inserting a needle into a piece of cloth made it impure and the saree was the ideal solution.
