Who is hiding behind the saree?
Sareez.com is one of the largest Indian ethnic wear stores on the internet and they recently asked me to review one of their ‘sareez’.
“Founded in 1995, Sareez has emerged to be a globally loved and preferred provider of a variety of Indian ethnic attires including Sarees, Salwar Kameez, Lehengas, Sherwani, Kaftans and more. We are based out of Kolkata, West Bengal, India. We at Sareez boast of our team of designers and craftsmen, who works together to make our dream of defining Indian ethnicity come alive.”
- Fast delivery inside India, I received the saree in 48 hours!
- International shipping, it can be really difficult and expensive to get hold of a saree outside Asia! Sareez.com is partnered with shipping companies FedEx, UPS, DHL, and TNT to courier your saree to you!
- There is a service where, for extra cost, they will stitch the blouse for you using your exact measurements.
- I am a tall girl, so sometimes sarees are too short and too narrow for me, unfortunately, this saree was one of them. I was unable to find the actual dimensions of the saree on the website.
- The saree was pretty frayed at each end.
- In the photograph on the website, the saree looks soft and shiny but it actually feels very rough and looks matte. I guess Bhagalpuri silk is not, well, silky. The material quality didn’t seem to match the picture, I guess lighting can work wonders.
The website itself is easy to use and there is a breathtaking about of choice, from the beautiful to the bizarre (ever fancied a Mickey Mouse saree?), so there is something for everyone. As I got my saree for free, for this product review, I was given the choice of only six sareez (oh darn, I have started spelling it with a ‘Z’ now).
I had to choose a saree I wouldn’t have normally chosen, loud shapes and colours are not really my style, it was either this or a snakes and ladders saree (yup, you can buy a saree which can also be used as a board game!). I felt a little disappointed with the frayed ends, but this can be sorted by a tailor.
