Kanakavalli Kanjivaram Silk Sari 110-01-106351
Kanakavalli's June pick for The Beautiful Drape is a gorgeous sari from our Figured Silks collective of jacquard embellished kanjivarams.
This scarlet kanjivaram has an intricately embellished body, with veldhari stripes forming a jacquard pattern in tonal orange silken thread. The jacquard work ends in a temple pattern just above the borders in an interesting use of the technique. The borders themselves are simple, balancing out the rich detail and complexity of the jacquard designs on the body. They feature peacocks and chakarams in gold zari on a band in green shot with black, alongside a band of gold tissue.
The pallu is classic, embellished with peacock, chakaram, paisley and stylised leaf motifs as well as twill patterns all in rich gold zari.
The juxtaposition of the ornate detail of the sari's body against the elegant simplicity of its borders and pallu is visually striking, as is the occasional pop of contrast colour amid the more subtle tonal hues.
The zari in this sari contains 40% of silver and 4% of gold.
Approximate Length - 5.5 meters + 0.7 to 0.75 meters (attached blouse)
