A saree, however beautiful and expensive it may be, is incomplete without a good, stylish and well-fitting matching blouse. In other words, a blouse is to a saree – as love is to live. Both have no meaning without each other! Let’s not get too philosophical, though, and concentrate on talking about blouses – also known as saree blouses or cholis.

Unfortunately, many women forget about blouse – its look, design, cut, colour etc. – while finalizing on grand sarees. Later on, when they want a trendy blouse done, they realize that the blouse piece with the saree is either not stylish enough, or is lesser in measurement than required for the blouse design chosen by them. This leaves them in the lurch; many even buy extra blouse pieces or ready-made blouses.
