Kanakavalli Kanjivaram Silk Sari 040-01-112506
Kanakavalli's July pick for The Beautiful Drape is a gorgeous silk sari from the Vault collective of heirloom kanjivarams that are exclusive to the brand.
Our featured kanjivaram for the month showcases some of the most classic and beloved motifs and patterns of the craft. This fuchsia sari shot with dark mulberry purple features delicate kamalam or lotus buttis in gold zari dotted on the body. The borders have classic moplah lines woven in scarlet and framed by a row of bhugodi triangles in gold zari. Rows of gold mutthu seeru and vanki designs, inspired by the armlets of South India, enclose jadai nagam patterns that resemble a traditional hair ornament, woven here in green silken yarn, amid hints of mustard yellow. The central band of the border is embellished with mayil kann motifs, also woven in green. The pallu features the same designs as the borders, with a row of elephants in green and a twill band in gold zari.
The zari in this sari contains 35% of silver and 0.4% of gold.
