Kanchipuram silk sarees obtained its name from the town where it started from. Kanchipruam (Kanchi) a locale arranged on the Northern Eastern Coast of Tamil Nadu, which was the recorded capital of the Pallavas amid seventh to ninth hundreds of years. It later turned into the bastion of the Cholas, Vijayanagar rulers, the Muslims and the British.

Legend and history

As indicated by legends in Hindu folklore, Kanchi silk weavers are the relatives of Sage Markandeya, the ace weaver of Gods who should have woven tissue from lotus fibre. Additionally, while cotton is viewed as the most loved texture of Lord Shiva, silk was favoured by Lord Vishnu. History has it that Kanchipuram rose to prominence amid Krishnadevaraya‘s rule (400 years back), when two weaving networks – the Devangas and the Saliyars transmigrated to Kanchipuram from the neighbouring state Andhra Pradesh. Essentially on the grounds that inside this apparently tiny town there were in excess of 129 finely made sanctuaries, and silk was constantly viewed as the stately wear at religious customs and weddings. The Devanga and Saliyar weavers were presumed for their silk weaving abilities; even today the fundamental calling of the general population living in and around Kanchipuram is weaving silk sarees.


Weaving technique

Kanchipuram sarees are hand woven from unadulterated mulberry silk. The business here is just comprised of handloom weavers and shippers and does not fabricate silk or some other crude material that goes into the silk saree. The principle crude materials are mulberry silk string, metallic string (Zari) and colour. This improves the excellence and the estimation of the silk saree. The mulberry silk string originates from the neighbouring territory of Karnataka, the metallic string originates from Gujarat, and the colours excessively are not fabricated in Kanchipuram. Yet, every one of these materials are brought here, and the gifted craftsman weave them on handlooms, making a special hand-made show-stopper in every saree. On the off chance that the pallu must be woven in an alternate shade, it is first independently woven and afterward gently joined to the saree utilizing age-old Korvai strategy (a method to interlock the fringe and pallu with the body). The joint is woven so unequivocally that regardless of whether the saree tears, the fringe would not withdraw.
