Blue-Ribbon Kanjivaram Sari from Bangalore with Zari-Woven Pallu and Checks
$625.00
The handwoven silks of Kanjivaram come second only to the beauteous temples located in this quaint Tamil Nadu village. While the descendants of sage Markandeya, weaver of the devas, are said to be churning out exquisite silks in Kanjivaram to this day, the name now belongs to a particular weave applied to the finest mulberry silk. The Kanjivaram number that you see on this page has been handpicked from Bangalore. It has the three quintessential hallmarks of this variety of Indian sarees - unadulterated mulberry silk, the finest-quality dye, and zari embroidery.

The field is made up of miniscule chequers the colour of lapis lazuli, on a foundation of white. This makes for an especially understated Kanjivaram. In fact, the border and endpiece are what make this saree stand out. Thick border layered with solid gold zariwork (metallic thread embroidery); and a solid-coloured endpiece woven in with luxuriant gold booties and peacock motifs. The sheer proportion of zari on this saree makes it a great one to wear to the weddings of relatives and acquaintances.
