Wash the silk Dhoti’s gently with a mild soap. Do not brush or lash the silk dhoti as it might lead to tearing the zari. Avoid brushing, twisting or wringing the silk to keep the Zari intact. Wash the border and body separately for korvai dhotis. Dry it in a shaded area, and iron the dhoti while using medium heat before it.
From subtle colors like sky blue, lime green to dark colours like maroon or navy blue is a match for white silk dhotis. One can also experiment with prints to add a quirk factor to your outfit.
