Pure Silk saree weavers in Kanchipuram have contributed to the development and fame of Indian silksaree. Across the length and breadth of the country, generations of weavers continue to create magic giving their creations a distinct touch - through the use of colours and designs.
The glamour of the Kanchipuram pure silk saree lies in its colour contrasts. Pyramidical temple borders, checks, stripes and floral "buttas" are traditional designs you will find in a Kanchipuram saree. In a genuine Kanchipuram saree, the border, body and pallav are woven separately and then interlocked together. The joint is woven so strongly that even if the saree tears, the pallav (or border) will not detach.

Our pure silk saree has been popular in Kanchipuram- for its sheer variety of designs, weaving and quality. This is largely due to the fact that Kanchipuram has the unique distinction of producing different varieties of silk saree.
There are four main varieties of pure silk saree produced by a distinct variety of silkworm feeding on a specific host plant. Pure Silk saree is a protien fibre, produced by the silkworm for spinning around its cocoon. This fibre (filament) is unwound to obtain silk. Yarn is produced by twisting the fibre, which is then dyed, warped and finally woven to produce fabric.
