The word ‘sari’ evolved from saatikaa, mentioned in earliest Hindu literature as women’s attire. The sari or sattika evolved from a three piece esemble comprising the ‘Antriya’, the lower garment, the ‘uttariya’, a veil worn over the shoulder or the head and the stanapatta, a chest band.This ensemble was mentioned in Sanskrit literature and Buddhist Pali literature during the 6th century BCE.This complete three-piece dress was known as Poshak, generic term for costume. Ancient Antriya closely resembled dhoti wrap in the “fishtail” version, which was passed through legs, covered the legs loosely and then flowed into a long, decorative pleats at the front of the legs. It further evolved into Bhairnivasani skirt, today known as ghagri and lehenga.Uttariya was a shawl-like veil worn over the shoulder or head; it evolved into what is known today as dupatta and ghoonghat. Likewise, Stanapatta evolved into choli by 1st century CE.
