Sarees are a traditional garment worn by women in South Asia and have a rich cultural history. They are often made of natural fabrics like cotton, silk, and linen, and have many benefits over synthetic materials like polyester and nylon. Let us explore some of the main reasons why one should consider wearing sarees made of natural fabrics, as compared to synthetic fabrics.
Comfort: Natural fabrics like cotton, silk, and linen are much more comfortable to wear than synthetic materials. They are soft to the touch and gentle on the skin, making them ideal for everyday wear. Synthetic fabrics, on the other hand, can be scratchy and harsh, causing irritation and discomfort. Mogasu prides itself in creating handcrafted garments from natural fabrics.
Breathability: Natural fabrics are much more breathable than synthetic ones, which means they allow air to circulate and help keep the body cool and comfortable. Natural fabrics are generally more absorbent than synthetic ones, which means they can help keep the skin dry and prevent sweating. This can be especially important in hot and humid climates, where moisture can build up on the skin and cause discomfort. Especially in the climatic conditions of India, it becomes important to wear breathable fabrics - when you wear sarees longer in office, on special occasions and parties. Our customers have worn Mogasu sarees on different occasions and have praised the softness and breathability of the mul cotton, chanderi silk and linen sarees.
Hypoallergenic: Some people may have allergies or sensitivities to synthetic fabrics, which can cause skin irritation or other issues. Natural fabrics, on the other hand, are generally hypoallergenic and are less likely to cause these kinds of problems. This makes them a great choice for those with sensitive skin or allergies. Certain fabric finishes, such as those that are treated with chemicals to make them wrinkle-resistant or flame-resistant, may cause irritation. How a fabric is washed and dried can also affect its tendency to irritate the skin. Using harsh detergents or drying clothes on a high heat setting can strip the fabric of its natural oils, making it more prone to causing irritation. At Mogasu, we use reactive dyes and natural fabrics which do not cause any problem to the skin. Our soft mul sarees, premium chanderi silk sarees and linen sarees with zari are all non-hypoallergenic.
Durability: Natural fabrics are generally more durable than synthetic ones, especially when it comes to high-stress areas like the elbows and knees. They are also less prone to pilling, fading, and shrinking, which means they will last longer and look better for longer. Did you know that we do a wash test of the sarees regularly to check their durability? Mogasu’s mul cotton sarees do not fade even after 40 washes. This however does not mean that you should wash all your sarees. Pay attention to the special wash care instructions shipped along with your Mogasu sarees to ensure longevity.
Environmental impact: Natural fabrics are generally more sustainable and have a lower environmental impact than synthetic ones. They are made from renewable resources like cotton and silk, which are grown and harvested using natural processes. Synthetic fabrics, on the other hand, are made from non-renewable fossil fuels and can release harmful chemicals during production and disposal. We at Mogasu try to reduce our footprint by using natural fabrics in our sarees.
In conclusion, there are multiple good reasons to consider wearing sarees made of natural fabrics. They are comfortable, breathable, hypoallergenic, durable, and have a lower environmental impact than synthetic materials. Whether you're looking for a traditional garment like a saree to wear on special occasions or just want something comfortable and stylish to wear every day, natural fabrics are a great choice.
