Kanchipuram Silk is a type of silk saree made in the Kanchipuram region in Tamil Nadu, India. These sarees are worn as bridal & special occasion sarees by most women in Tamil Nadu, Karnataka & Andhra Pradesh. It has been recognized as a Geographical indication by the Government of India in 2005-06. The sarees are woven from pure mulberry silk thread. The pure mulberry silk used in the making of Kanchipuram saris comes from South India and the zari comes from Gujarat. To weave a Kanchipuram sari three shuttles are used. While the weaver works on the right side, his aide works on the left side shuttle. The border colour and design are usually quite different from the body. If the pallu (the hanging end of the sari) has to be woven in a different shade, it is first separately woven and then delicately joined to the Sari. The part where the body meets the pallu is often denoted by a zigzag line. In a genuine Kanchipuram Silk Sari, body and border are woven separately and then interlocked together. The joint is woven so strongly that even if the sarees tears, the border will not detach. That differentiates the kanchivaram silk sarees from the others. Saris are distinguished by their wide contrast borders. Temple borders, checks, stripes and floral (buttons) are traditional designs found on a Kanchipuram sarees. The patterns and designs in the Kanchipuram sarees were inspired with images and scriptures in South Indian temples or natural features like leaves, birds and animals Kanchipuram saris woven with overwhelming silk and gold material are thought to be uncommon and are worn on events and merriments.
