How to wear an Indian Saree using Sari Saheli (the pleat maker).

Updated on October 3, 2015

Sari Saheli- Another great invention!

I came across this device as I researched for one of my previous hubs: How to put on a Sari. As all you Indian women know, putting on a sari can be very difficult-- especially if you are not in practice.

It is a time consuming task and often requires several attempts to perfect the look.

The Sari Saheli could not be any simplier to use. The Saheli has several plastic sheets into which each pleat is created and held in place. It will not tear up your sari or create knicks in the threads. Simply place a clip or pin after sari pleats are complete and then tuck in.

Need to pleat your pallu next? Simply attach the Sari Saheli to the end of the pallu, pleat and then throw it over your shoulder.

Maybe now I won't have to go running to my Mom or a nearby Auntie to fix the pleats on my Sari!

Creating Pleats

Save Time and Frustration

Using Sari Saheli will cut down on the time spent getting ready for the next wedding or special occasion. With one attempt using the Saheli, your pleats and pallu will be even and perfect.

Have you ever created the perfect pleats and then it slips out of your hands? In this situation, you would have to start all over. Not with the Sari Saheli! The pleats stay in place and you can attend to other things without tying up your hands.

Watch the video above to get helpful tips.

Purchase Saheli and Clips Together


Beautiful Clips Replace Safety Pins

Sari Saheli can be purchased with these beautiful rhinestone magnetic clips that do not tear or pinch your sari. No more holes or worrying about ripping your sari with safety pins.

With thicker sari materials, often it is impossible to get a safety pin through the material. Worry no more! Try these durable and sturdy clips:

      They are incredibly challenging to put on, especially if you wear them infrequently. I only wear them on special occasions and have always needed assistance in the past. It's almost embarrassing to get help with dressing as an adult!

      Thanks for visiting TTombs08!
