Borders to an Attire is like two peas in a pod; they not only frame the whole look with a new welcoming perspective but also graces the get-up in a collected way with a calming effect on the wearer as well as the on-looker. According to the literary definition taking the sense of borders being a part of the fashion trims, “A Border is a decorative strip around the edge of something (noun)”, ‘e.g.: she stitched a border on to one of the plain white saris’(with a Fancy border) (Definition Source: https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/border). We can deduce here that, a Border frames out a piece in such a way that it is separated from the others beautifully and in a very positive aesthetic sense (all taken in the fact that, these trims are used in the right and artistic way).
- There is a common misconception that these edging companions are just limited to being decorated on Sarees, other dresses and as in a way only fixed to a wearable item. But it has to be made clear that not only borders decorate our clothes but also almost every of the lifestyle items surrounding us- like home furnishings, accessories etc.
- Another interesting element is that when it comes to the items of these rim sets, there are a few subsections as well (given lesser significance and ignoring the resemblances), which are individuals in their own way but a part very much in harmony with the whole concept of the borders. Taking the Lace borders as well as the Ribbon borders into attention, they too are a great alternative of hem decoration and a beautiful substitute to the protagonist of this write-up. However these ones differ in their concepts; they have a common aim in the end–to beautify the items they are laid upon, to jazz up the feel and to tastefully create a whole fancy and well-accepted look.
Borders are a one-stop solution to creating wonders in a short-cut way. Rather than taking the time and effort to do the ornamentation individually and in a stretch, items like the Saree/Sari border designs, Beads embellished borders, Artsy borders etc. when stitched on to the pieces of your liking does marvelous wonders and in many times in far better way. Such is the use and appeal of these Ornamented borders, that they sell like hot cakes and are in very much of a demand worldwide.
