Kanakavalli's Festive Edit continues with more kanjivaram curations for a season of celebration. This week we bring you The Kamalam Butti, a collection of gorgeous kanjivaram silk saris featuring the beautiful lotus or kamalam motif. A symbol of divine perfection, the kanjivaram interprets the lotus, beloved across Indian craft, as a delicate and stylised eight-petal floral motif. On the vibrant and exquisitely embellished kanjivarams of this curation, the kamalam butti dots the body of the sari, is ensconced within checks, or highlights classic layouts, woven in rich zari to lend delicacy to the bold drama of the queen of silks.
The lotus is an integral part of ritual and celebration in India, making the stunning kanjivaram saris of this collective the perfect addition to a festive wardrobe.
