My object is called Sarees which are clothes that look kinda like a dress, but not exactly. It’s a long piece of cloth which can have different designs on it, for example it can have floral designs or it can have fake jewelry, or just plain colors. There are multiple ways to wear a Sari, the most common way to wear it is that it’s supposed to wrap around your waists and at the end of the sari, people drape it over one shoulder. There are also many ways to drape the end for example people bring it over to the other shoulder as well, which makes it look like a blanket, or people cover their head with it. Underneath you wear a blouse which will look best if you match it with your Sari. The blouse can have long or short sleeves depends on which you like best.  People wear sarees sometimes when they go to a party or they wear sarees whenever a big holiday or celebration is happening like when it’s eid. But some people wear Sarees at home just because they want to which is fine, for example throughout my country (Bangladesh) women wear Sarees as their usual outfit. It’s the most popular clothing for women to wear there. Sarees can be sold in stores or sometimes in fairs. They could be either made out of silk or cotton and other types of material. The first Saree was made out of cotton and progressed it’s way up to a fancier level (silk).
Sarees are special because it’s a very unique type of clothing and many in my culture wear it. I hope Sarees are worn until the longest of time.
