This season Kanakavalli brings you a curation featuring one of the most classic motif pairings in the kanjivaram tradition-The Mayil Chakaram Butti. The mayil or peacock is a symbol of regal splendour and a motif of great beauty and grace, beloved across arts, architecture and sculpture in India. On the kanjivaram drape, the delicacy of the mayil is balanced by the geometric intricacy and circularity of the chakaram motif with its rich spiritual and cultural significance.
This collective features exquisite kanjivaram saris in a palette of distinctive jewel tones, adorned with mayil and chakaram motifs in fine zari. The buttis occur within checks or dot the body of the sumptuous silks, at once paying homage to the textile heritage and lending a delightful shimmer to the drape.
