There can never be any doubt about the saree's absolute dominance as the Queen of all traditional Indian women's garments! A silk saree's richness is remarkable for a variety of reasons. Whether it's the gleam of smooth texture in some, the rough hand woven matte in others, the boiling beauty of brilliant resham, or the calm glitter of genuine zari, there's something for everyone. All of this, plus the fact that it was weaved by a skilled pair of talented hands, makes a silk saree worth its weight in gold.
Women have always discovered ways to bring their silks, whether Gadwals, Jamawars, Gharcholas, or Maheshwaris, to life with their own distinct beauty by expertly mixing the correct jewellery with a suitably tailored top. Aside from that, there's the outstanding kuchu. If you've ever noticed, sarees from the southern areas of India, in particular, have a really delicate finish all the way down the pallu. It's a lovely tasselled finish that brings the drapery to a traditional conclusion. This is known as the ‘kuchu,' and it is the ideal conclusion to the magical nine yards.
Here are some very stunning kuchu patterns that make a huge influence on the saree's overall appearance:
The simple addition of the same colours as the saree makes the kuchu appear to be an entirely distinct component of the saree itself. The extremely popular net style, and in a very simple design, is created by the excellent matching of the pink and green, as well as the longish tassel with double knots crossing each other at the top. Great for heavy Chanderi silks and Maheshwaris that have a lot of colour combinations and might need a strong finish to balance out their subtle elegant aspect.
This golden and turquoise blue thread kuchu with golden beads to define the work on the saree is my second choice. Would look stunning with silk satins or Jamawars, as the golden silk tassel's hue would complement the colour scheme well. The pattern's distinctiveness comes from the sequence of four blues followed by three golden, which makes the blue pop against the golden tassel.
The use of gold in the saree with a single thread in the pink tassle and the use of gorgoreus beads in between is a thumb rule in any kuchu design, and in this case, great care has been taken to highlight delicately the use of gold in the saree with a single thread in the pink tassle and the use of gorgoreus beads in between. This design is pure ingenuity, with so much thought put into it. It's worth repeating!
While crystals give any saree a sweet, delicate appearance, it's the use of metal beads that takes it to the next level. Tussars in metallic hues or any plain silk saree with basic metallic coloured embroidery look great with this. It would take the colour scheme to a new level. Smart, sassy, and perfect for individuals who enjoy wearing silver jewellery.
The age old crochet is turning a new leaf in the kuchu design industry, and in this case, a lovely sap green and deep forest green. This is a thread crochet with golden beads that has been creatively mixed. Crochet work gives a look extremely feminine beauty, moving it away from the overly dressy aspect of a thick saree and giving it a more contemporary vibe. Simple soft silks, plain tussars, and even Chanderi silks would look fantastic. Even with my thicker Uppada silk, I wouldn't be afraid to try it because it would offer it an appearance of informality. If you had a silk saree with thread work, this would be perfect.
This one, like the one before it, has the tassel hanging from two silver beads that are linked together. Sarees with silver thread work and lighter hues of pinks, mauves, blues, and greys are best.
Apart from the jaal or lattice work made with the lighter coloured thread, the tassles themselves are in two coordinated hues, as shown in the photos below. This is an ancient kuchu design that may be made in a more complicated jaal, such as the one below, which has two layers of tiers. The use of two colours for the jaal is an interesting variation. Because it is completely dependent on resham, I would recommend it for any saree with heavy thread work. If you think the saree's colours would go nicely with pearl beads, go ahead and do so.
This is my suggestion for anyone who likes a gentle pearly shine that would look great with sarees in pistachio greens, beiges, whites, and other less spectacular colours. The stunning bead catches the eye right away, and the shine it gives the saree's border is beautiful. It'd look just as good on a satin silk saree as it would on a plain silk saree. If pearls are your thing, this is a kuchu pattern that is rich and interesting in form and design.
The tassels on this one-of-a-kind saree kuchu design are shaped like autumn leaves. The tassels are fashioned from little rainbow beads, which add to the saree's attractiveness. It is a must-try for everyone who enjoys nature.
This saree is excellent for large celebrations with fine and exquisite crochet work in saree tassel patterns with dangling beads. Combine this with your ordinary silk saree and you'll be a show-stopper in no time!
This wedding tassel collection includes glitter beads, traditional kuchu, and crochet designs in three different tassel shapes. The tassels are made with premium silk thread to create an heirloom item.
A lovely beaded kuchu work adds flare to the beauty of this saree. The bead's geometric form will easily lend a whimsical twist to your traditional sari!
The mere concept of a tassel suspended from two silver beads that have been linked together is enough to inspire creativity. Sarees with silver thread work in subdued tones of grey, light pink, mauve, and other colours might benefit from these unique saree tassels.
