Kanjivarams, Kanjeevarams, Sari, Sarees

Kanjivaram Silk, one of the most popular names in the Indian sari market has a unique space in Indian textile traditions for many years together. Kanjivaram silks are made in Kanchipuram located in Tamil Nadu, India. Kanjivarams are worn as bridal and occasion wear by women across different parts of India, primarily in the south.

Kanjivaram saris are traditionally woven with pure mulberry silk and gold zari in bright contrasting colour combinations. To weave a Kanjivaram sari three shuttles are used: While the weaver works on the right side, his aide works on the left side shuttle.

If the pallu has to be woven in a different shade, it is first separately woven and then delicately joined to the Sari using the infamous “Korvai” joining technique.

The part where the pallu and body meet is denoted by a running zig-zag line.

In a genuine Kanjivaram Silk Saris, body and border are woven separately and then interlocked together. The joint is woven so strongly that even if the sari tears, the border would not detach making this a unique sari.
These Saris are distinguished by their wide variety of borders:

Temple borders, checks, stripes and floral (buttas) are traditional designs found on a Kanjivaram sari. The patterns and designs in the sari were inspired by imagery and scriptures in South Indian temples. The depiction of nature features flora and fauna motifs. Often, saris with rich woven pallu boast of paintings of Raja Ravi Varma and scenes from the epics like Ramayana and Mahabharata of Indian Mythology.

Our collection of Kanjivaram saris represent bright and fresh colours in genuine craftsmanship that retain the authentic flavour of the Kanjivaram sari. Available as saris, running fabric and stitched garments – Kanjivarams are one of the finest of our collections.
