A kasavu saree's shape and crispness can be maintained by starching it. The following advice will help you starch and maintain a kasavu saree:
Use natural starch: When starching fabric, avoid using chemical starches, which can cause long-term damage to the fabric. Instead, use natural starches like cornflour or rice flour.
Create a thin, runny solution out of the starch by combining it with water.
Apply the starch solution: Gently dab the fabric with the starch solution using a soft cloth or brush, being careful not to oversaturate it. Be careful not to rub or wring the fabric as you work your way up from the hem.
The saree should be hung to dry in a shaded area away from the sun. The saree should not be ironed while it is still wet as this could harm the fabric.
Carefully iron: After the saree has dried completely, iron it on a low heat setting, being mindful not to press too hard. To protect the delicate kasavu border, iron the fabric from the back.
Store the saree properly by keeping it away from moisture and direct sunlight in a cool, dry location. Sarees shouldn't be stacked on top of one another as this can result in pressure marks and harm the fabric.
You can help maintain the shape and crispness of your kasavu saree and keep it looking its best by adhering to these starching and maintenance tips.
