The Intrinsic Union
The legendary korvai weaving technique is explored in this range of Kanakavalli kanjivarams.
Intricate in execution, the woven attachment of korvai borders is one of the hallmarks of a kanjivaram classic. Beautifully hand woven through the laborious process of jointed border attachments to the body of the kanjivaram sari, this weaving detail becomes a design feature in itself, taking on a multitude of forms from a straight line interlock to the more traditional sharp edged triangle and more elaborate temple inspired gopuram forms.
The use of the korvai technique further enhances the kanjivaram's bold use of colour, creating solid and textured borders that emphasise high contrast to the warp and weft that run through the body.
