Kanchipuram cotton

Kanchipuram silk sarees are traditionally in the village called Kanchipuram in Tamil Nadu, India. For years now, Kanchipuram silk sarees have dominated the world of South Indian sarees. Synonymous with the sarees of South India, these are the mark of culture for every south Indian wedding, ceremony or occasion. The shine and durability of the fabric have made these Sarees popular attire among women across the globe. The rich quality combined with an amazing finish make them last longer. Their shine and durability is what makes them one of the most attractive traditional sarees of India. The story of the Kanchipuram saree has a deep meaning attached to it. The silk saree bears the images of all the scriptures embossed on the walls of the temples of the Kanchipuram village. The motifs used today have evolved over a period of time, however, the Kanchipuram silk saree has still not lost its importance. The raw material used in this saree is the famous Mulberry silk from Karnataka. It is an extremely finely woven saree and its charm lies in the fact that it uses a double warp and weft technique. To add a little more shine to the saree, zari is also used. Kanchipuram silk sarees used to a 9 yard saree traditionally, however, now it has become a 6 yard saree incorporated with zari still keeping the shine intact
