The saree worn by India’s 15th President Draupadi Murmu during her swearing-in ceremony, has become the current talk of the town. Murmu was seen wearing a Santali saree, gifted by her sister-in-law Sukri Tudu, used by Santal women in eastern India. Sukri along with her husband Tarinsen Tudu had arrived in the national capital to witness the swearing-in ceremony at the Central Hall of Parliament. Let’s find out the specialities of the Santali saree, a traditional attire of tribal women in Mayurbhanj, Odisha.

The Santali saree is generally worn during religious celebrations, especially during the tribal festival of Baha (flower festival). It is also worn during gatherings and other joyful occasions. It is an attire worn by both men and women alike.
