A saffron-colored blouse will also complement the saree, which is a clear representation of courage and strength.

At the upcoming Paris Olympics starting from July 26, 2024, the familiar blue blazers will be replaced by the traditional Indian attire, saree – the official ceremonial uniform. The uniform will feature an Ikat print that is adorned by tricolour impression for symbolizing the pride of the nation. Females will also have to pair their saree with a matching blouse pockets. 

Reportedly leaving the mark of the Indian Olympic Association, the official ceremonial uniform for female athletes will be the perfect blend of modernity and Indian tradition. 

The hand-crafted fabric of the saree to be worn at the Paris Olympics allows the fabric to resist dyeing and, in turn, create intricate patterns. The labor-intensive craftsmanship comes into play on the fabric by adding a delicate and feathery touch to it.
