Why do I sell Saree?
For women living in Southern Asian countries, it is much easier to find sarees of their taste. But women in Japan often find it difficult to buy a good quality saree with the right price. Some of us are not be able to wear saree on daily basis like we wear western clothes. But whenever we wear saree, it reminds us of the beautiful memories of being excited about weddings and hand picking every saree we would like to wear, the excitement of school farewells and choosing just one right saree for that special day that will be in our memories for the rest of our lives. It makes us remember the beautiful colors of our cultures and the time we spent with our loved ones.
