Do you mean Sari? Indian dress worn by ladies.
Re: Buying Sarees In Lagos by Seun(m): 1:40pm On Aug 02, 2006
A sari (also spelled saree) is the traditional garment worn by many women in the Indian subcontinent. The garment is known by different names in various Indian languages; in Hindi, Gujarati and Marathi, it is known as sāṛī; in Kannada as seere; in Telugu as 'cheera and in Tamil as podavai.

@chyla

You can look around Ilupeju and VI where there are couple of Indian ladies who sell Indian clothes. There is one in Adeola Adeola street, there is one near Mr.Biggs ( I'm not very sure about their address', though). To my knowledge, these ladies can get you one from India, on request.

For your info, sarees cannot be worn on it's own wink You have to wear a matching blouse with it, which normally comes attached to the saree itself. I don't think we have tailors in Lagos who can stitch saree blouses. Also, matching underskirts are worn underneath a saree to make it look fuller. As far as I know, a 6meter long heavily embroidered cloth draped around your body on a tight fitting blouse and an underskirt can make the attire too stuffy and uncomfortable, for those who are not used to it.

Sarees can cost anywhere from Rupees. 50 to Rupees.100,000.

Why are they using rupees in Nigeria?
Re: Buying Sarees In Lagos by Damest09(f): 1:09am On Aug 04, 2006
Saree sucks, i got loads of Indians selling in the city i live. We should be proud of our culture. I haven't seen any African or even Nigerian wearing Saree. People rather prefer ordering Native from Nigeria.
Re: Buying Sarees In Lagos by alheri(f): 9:03am On Aug 04, 2006
Well I cant tell you where to get them sarees for sure but I could give you an alternative. Why not try the "Laffaya" worn by Kanuri women on Borno? Its about the same thing and it comes in 6 yards. Prizes vary depending on the quality. Its almost the same thing as a saree, really. I dont even know the difference sometimes. So if youre interested in that, let me know.

My two kobo's worth. There's nothing wrong with appreciating other peeps' culture. But then again, how many Indians would even dream of wearing iro and buba, aso oke or george? And what would they even think of seeing you in their native attire? I quite agree with the other peeps on this thread who think it is best to stick to one's native attire which I think is the bomb.
Re: Buying Sarees In Lagos by Mongue(m): 10:48am On Aug 04, 2006
All the people harassing this woman for wanting to wear a saree need to [stop]!

For goodness sake it's fine to love your culture and clothing and language but even better to appreciate others as well! Are you really saying that Nigerians should only wear iro and buba or agbada, in that case you should burn all of your jeans and shirts etc etc etc

Broaden your horizons a bit [people]
Re: Buying Sarees In Lagos by Madira: 11:04am On Aug 04, 2006
To each their own. Everyone is entitled to their views. Mine on this issue remains the same. It is all very well to appreciate other's cultures, however, rite now the need to appreciate and uphold ours is paramount, end of story.
Re: Buying Sarees In Lagos by sumbo(f): 4:10pm On Aug 04, 2006

Re: Buying Sarees In Lagos by soulpatrol(f): 6:03pm On Aug 08, 2006
my fellow nigerians, i thought we were open minded people? why cuss someone that wants to wear clothes of another nationality? since when did we become like that? we should be able to wear whatever we please. arent we wearing clothes from other cultures? like someone else commented, we should also burn/throw out our jeans and tube tops cos it sure as hell aint our culture! sheesh!!
Re: Buying Sarees In Lagos by zebudaya(m): 7:48pm On Aug 08, 2006
jeans are universal everybody wears them regardless of race and nationality sarees? @&#^@?
Re: Buying Sarees In Lagos by hollame1(f): 11:03pm On Aug 10, 2006
zeby (hope u don't mind me calling u dt tongue) sari is universal we just all wear it differently,
as for me i like my sari, my man wear naija's native, i feel proud when he wears it, , and he loves showing me off when i wear sari too. at the end of the day, everythng na cloth.

Our commercial capital may be dirty,crowded and unsafe but c'mon its our commercial capital,so we must respect it and realize that it is the NEW YORK of NIgeria.
Re: Buying Sarees In Lagos by kattoon: 1:03pm On Sep 04, 2006
i have sarees, how much r u prepared to pay. 6 metres which is equivalent to 61/2 yards would be from the range of £30, onwards i.e. 7,500 naira or thereabout depending on the designs u want. Heavy or standard

I was the maid of honor at my Guyanese indian friend's wedding and yes I wore a saree. She returned the favor by wearing trado at my wedding. Just because you appreciate another culture doesn't mean you love your own any less.
