Saree is a six yards of sheer elegance. While most women know how to drape sarees in oh-so-perfect way, a section of them often struggle with it. And that’s why those women either get it draped from their moms, sisters, or any other relatives and in other cases, they go to parlour-waali aunties. While we choose such options, celebrities get those sarees draped from their stylists. But do you know there is a profession of being a saree draper? Yep, we aren’t kidding.
We have found a professional saree draper who allegedly charges over ₹1 lakh for her services. A podcast video of a woman talking about the artist has caught our attention on Instagram.
The clip posted by an official Instagram handle of The Specific Ask (@thespecificask), shows a career counsellor Kanchan Nanda Ralhan talking about her encounter with the saree draper in discussion.
During her interview with podcast host Rishabh Aggarwal, Ralhan recalled that once she bumped into the saree draper in discussion and complimented the artist for her fabric-draping technique. “She said, I am professional tying up sarees (sic),” the guest replied.
Ralhan then remembered telling the saree draper that over 32-33 friends of her son will be attending a wedding and asking about the charges. “She said very straight forward that it is about ₹36 lakh (sic),” the guest added.
As per the video, the charges of the professional saree draper are ₹ 1.10 lakh for a 10-minute session.
