Kanakavalli Kanjivaram Silk Sari 040-01-104591
Part of Kanakavalli's September Beautiful Drape curation, this stunning heirloom kanjivaram is woven on a four-pedal loom in the ettu kol set up, in which a pattern is overlaid upon the base fabric of the sari.
This black sari features weft-based checks in gold zari and stem green, executed using two complex weaving techniques. The horizontal stripes are woven in ettu kol, forming a delicate twill pattern laid over the base colour of the kanjivaram, and this is not visible on the reverse side of the sari. The vertical stripes are woven in a different technique, forming what is known as a benarasi design.
The pallu's zari seeprekku pattern and the designs in stem green and gold are woven in the ettu kol set up. The borders feature two sets of stem green lines known as seeru, enclosing delicate mutthu seeru in gold zari, wrapped around a vanki or chevron pattern in rich zari. The top of the border is lined by tiny gold bhugodi triangles, inspired by temple architecture.
This sari uses a fine zari with a 50% silver, and 0.3-0.4% gold composition.
