Description: Loosely woven cotton sari of red and green striped along the length. A border of tightly woven red cotton with gold stripes runs along each side. At one end are two predominantly green stripes woven with gold thread. "6 Yards" is stamped in black ink at one end of the sari. "16 84 2502.6" is stamped at the opposite end.

A sari is the traditional female garment in India, Bangladesh, Nepal, and Sri Lanka. A sari is a very long strip of unstitched cloth, ranging from four to nine metres in length, which can be draped in various styles. The most common style is for the sari to be wrapped around the waist, with one end then draped over the shoulder baring the midriff. The sari is usually worn over a petticoat with a blouse known as a choli or ravika forming the upper garment. _ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sari_
