Soft silks are the all-time favorite for today’s generation of youngsters who want to wear silk sarees which are easy to drape and carry. They are soft and lightweight yet grand in appearance and the best alternative to the traditional Kanchipuram silk sarees.
As the name goes, soft-silks are thus named because of the softness of the texture and are quite versatile due to the variety of colours and designs they come in. Contrary to the myth, the silk used in the weaving of a soft silk saree is the same as the one used in Kanchipuram silk.
The difference lies in starching the saree- most traditional Kanchipuram silks are heavily starched so that the saree gets draped in a particular way however soft silk sarees are not starched therefore the saree does not get weighed down. They are lightweight, easy to drape and maintain and also comfortable for an all-day wear.
