KANCHIPURAM SAREES HERITAGE WOVEN IN SILK
The weaving of Kanchipuram silk sarees started around 400 years ago in the small temple town of Kanchipuram in Tamil Nadu. Back then, Kanchipuram sarees were woven by the descendants of Sage Markanda, who was considered to be the master weaver for the Gods.
Kanchipuram Pattu sarees are impeccably crafted with beautiful traditional patterns and are known for their richness and grandeur. Kanchipuram silk exudes a royal vibe and enthralls every generation. The luxurious weaves, soft fabric, classic sheen, and embellished zari work put the saree on a pedestal.
Kanchipuram silk sarees, also known as kanjivaram silk sarees, are woven from pure mulberry silk. The pure mulberry silk comes from South India while the gold and silver zari comes from Gujarat. The silk is called ‘pattu’ in Tamil and so the sarees are also called Kanchipuram pattu sarees.
KANCHIPURAM SILK SAREE - INDULGE IN THE BEAUTY OF THE WEAVE
The Kanchipuram sarees are woven using three shuttles. One weaver weaves at the right side of the shuttle while at the same time the other weaver weaves the saree from the left shuttle. The borders of Kanchipuram silk are mostly woven in contrasting shades. The Kanchipuram Pattu sarees are woven with beautiful motifs such as peacock, paisley, Annapakshi, Chakram, Yali, and floral motifs. Each motif has its significance and adds value to the silk.
Vastly different from the Banarasi silk saree, Kanchipuram sarees are woven in a very unique manner. The color and design of the body are woven separately from the border of the saree. Thus, the saree parts are woven differently and later joined together. In the same vein, if the saree pallu is woven in different shades then the portion for each shade is woven separately and delicately joined to the saree.
Kanchipuram sarees are seen as exquisite because of their distinguished borders, richly woven zari pallus, and beautiful motifs woven in silk. Kanchipuram or kanjivaram sarees are also loved for their traditional designs.
