You all have an idea of the Kanchipuram silk or the Kanjeevaram sarees which hail from the Southern part of the sub-continent of India. This silk variation is one of the most popular silk sarees of India which is worn by the women on auspicious occasions of wedding, puja or similar other ritualistic occasions. Kanjeevaram silk sarees are popular for housing the most intricate designs of the weaving culture of India with precious golden as well as the silver thread all over the body of the saree. A weaver takes around three to four weeks to weave one piece of Kanjeevaram saree. There is a reason why Kanjeevaram sarees are expensive, and that is due to the usage of pure raw silk in the weaving as well as the using of pure gold and silver threads. Kanjeevaram sarees are extremely heavy to be walked in. The wearer must have the proficiency to manage the saree otherwise she can inevitably create a ruckus.
Here Comes the Opara Silk
Opara silk sarees are considered to be the cousin of Kanjeevaram silks. This newly launched variation of silk saree resembles the entire look of Kanjeevaram, but the weight of Opara silk sarees are half than that of the Kanjeevaram silks. The wearer can equally look good by wearing this saree, and she does not have to worry about managing it. Just like Kanjeevaram, the Opara silk sarees can be teamed up with traditional gold jewelry along.
Opara silks are available at extremely affordable prices because they are light. You must know that Opara silk sarees are combined silk sarees, that is, the silk sarees are made up of pure silk mixed with synthetic threads. The most expensive combination of Opara silk saree comes in the ratio of eighty percent silk and twenty percent synthetic. The less expensive the opera silk is, the more will be the ratio of synthetic thread in the entire body of the saree. Opara silk sarees are available both in the saree stores as well as in the online stores.
