The ancient process of weaving a silk saree has evolved over time but our heritage remains steeped in each warp and weft of a traditional Kanchipuram saree. Weavers pay homage to a craft with mastering complex weaving techniques that have been passed down from generation to generation for centuries and have stood the test of time.
The history of the Kanjivaram is as old as our myths. Infact Kanjeevaram Weavers are said to be the descendants of Markanda, a mythical figure from an ancient era known for weaving clothes for the Gods themselves. Originating from the small town of Kanchipuram, Tamil Nadu we see markers of this heritage in each saree’s temple border, flora and fauna inspired motifs and royal colours set against gold.
While concept drapes may be transient, the timeless weave of a traditional silk kanjivarams are building blocks of every wedding trousseau and they make for the perfectBridal Silk Sarees. These rich opulent sarees also make for the perfect drape for any celebration. The soft mulberry silk marries pure gold or silver zari from Gujarat to create a classic, gorgeous Kanjeevaram, the Queen of silks. The resham or silk is dipped in rice water to increase the durability and thickness of the fabric and then interlocked with silver wire which gives it it’s signature lustrous glow.
