Sarees come in different forms, whether it’s the fabric or the type of silk used, or even the style of draping. We have curated a list of different types of sarees for you! Let’s check ’em out!

1. Chikankari from Lucknow

One of the most popular among all types of sarees is the chikankari saree. Chikan is a type of embroidery style from Lucknow and it’s very famous. A white thread is embroidered on pastel shade muslin or cotton clothing. Over the years, chikan embroidery is found on dark-shade clothes, too. From kurtis to dupattas to sarees, this embroidery type on any outfit turns out to be classy and elegant. These sarees range from ₹5,000 to ₹40,000.

Chikankari sarees have embroidery work all over the saree. Traditionally, white embroidery work was done on a white muslin cloth. But as time passed, these sarees are available in different colors and various fabrics. The embroidery work is done on organza and Georgette sarees, which gives a variety of options to choose from. Also, machine knit embroidery has become popular over hand knit as they are affordable and require lesser man hours.  The traditional hand-knit embroidered clothing is durable and authentic. You can wear these sarees any time of the day – whether it’s an outdoor mehendi party or a night reception dinner, they look elegant! Pair them with simple pearl jewelry and you’re all set.


Take inspiration from Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone who sported an off-white Chikankari saree paired with a matching head veil for one of her wedding ceremonies. The bronze finish makeup look makes the outfit stand out. Designer duo Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla create some amazing Chikankari sarees and ensembles that are worth checking out!

2) Phulkari from Punjab


Punjab is a lively and colorful region and the attire of this place, too, is vibrant and filled with life. A Punjabi mom would never let her daughter sport a dull shade of clothing. What?! Ask our very own Punjabi girl – Shilpa 😉 Haha!

Phulkari means floral artwork. Also, did you know that the tradition of embroidering phulkari dupattas has a deep meaning? In Punjab, it’s believed that the birth of a girl child is auspicious and the mothers and grandmothers of the family start embroidering phulkari dupattas upon the birth of the girl child as she’s the creator of future generations. This is so heartwarming, right?! It’s also believed that the style is folk embroidery that has been carried on for generations.

The embroidery on the saree is done using floss silk thread on cotton fabric. As the name says, the embroidery is usually floral work. But it also includes other motifs and geometrical patterns. Traditionally, phulkari is made of thick fabrics and is used as a shawl or a dupatta. Sarees are too heavy and usually worn during marriage and festivals in Punjab. These sarees range from ₹5,000 to ₹20,000.

Choose a Phulkari saree for a day or an outdoor wedding party. You can sport them for a mehendi function, too! Pair these sarees with a plain blouse and let all the attention fall on the saree. Keep the jewelry minimum. Opt for a choker and simple studs. Instead of pleating the pallu, drape a single pleat to show off its beautiful patterns.

3. Leheriya from Rajasthan


Leheriya saree is similar to the Bandhani style sarees from Gujarat. It is worn as a daily wear in Rajasthan. It involves a different type of tie and dye process. The pattern is usually stripes and wavey compared to the traditional abstract tie and dye. Due to the wavey pattern, these sarees are named leheriya meaning wave in Rajasthani. Usually, the dyeing is done on thin cotton or silk cloth, in lengths appropriate for sarees and turbans. Twinning the saree with your man’s turban will be a trendsetter for sure! These sarees range from ₹3,000 to ₹40,000. The price increases if the saree border has handwork like gota patti or a heavy pallu.

These sarees are colorful and vibrant and can be worn even during hot summer days. Wear them to work (if you love bright and vibrant colors), for a small get-together, or for an evening outing! Try pairing them with contrast-colored blouses to stand out!

4. Konrad from Tamil Nadu

6. Pochampally from Telangana


Next on our list of types of sarees are pochampally sarees. These traditional South Indian sarees are a blend of cotton and silk. They have motifs and geometric patterned ikat designs all over the saree. The specialty of the ikat weaving technique is the design patterns dyed on the yarns before weaving on the fabric. Pochampally is a place in Telangana where the ikat weaving technique is followed predominantly, hence the name. These sarees range from ₹7,000 to ₹15,000.

Another range of sarees is known as Puttapaka sarees, which are quite similar to Pochampally sarees but use the double ikat method. The difference is very subtle but the former type focuses on symmetry of the design. You can wear them to small functions, temples, or for a special occasion at work. Unlike the other types of silk sarees, pochampally emerges as a winner as these sarees can be worn for weddings, too. They are light weighted and have a smooth texture, which makes the draping easy, unlike a heavy Kanchipuram saree.

7. Banarasi from Varanasi


Banarasi sarees are one of the finest types of sarees in India. They are popular for their gold and silver zari and are quite heavy. Traditionally, these sarees were woven only for the royal family using original gold and silver threads. But over time, there’s a variety to choose from in simple designs that are affordable, too. Usually, the designs are floral motifs woven all over the saree, which are inspired by the Mughals.

Just like other types of sarees, the Banarasi saree has been taken over by machine weaving. So, the price of an authentic Banarasi saree ranges from ₹8,000 to ₹3,00,000.

These sarees give a royal and classy look, especially for the new brides. If you’re a new bride or about to get married, take cues from Deepika Padukone and Anushka Sharma and sport the perfect newly-wed look. While wearing a heavy rich handloom saree, keep your hair simple – a bun with a center partition will be perfect. Also, do not pleat the pallu and go for an open pallu.
