Uses of Nauvari Saree
Traditionally the Nauvari saree is worn without a petticoat and the style of draping this saree is common among all the castes but the way of draping differs according to the region and topography as well. The Nauvari saree is draped in a way that the centre of the saree is neatly placed at the back of the waist and the ends of the saree are tied securely in the front, and then the two ends are wrapped around the legs. The decorative ends are then draped over the shoulder and the upper body or torso. Then there are the women of the Koli tribe, who have stylised the saree in their own unique way. They have cut the Nauvari saree into two pieces, with one piece worn around the waist while the other piece is used to cover the upper part of the body.
In these contemporary times, the traditional Nauvari saree still retains its charm and is now regularly worn mostly by the elderly Maharashtrian women and the younger generation, who are trying to keep the age-old Maratha tradition alive.
