Kanakavalli Kanjivaram Silk Sari 100-01-105350
Part of Kanakavalli's selection for October's The Beautiful Drape series, this gorgeous kanjivaram celebrates the interplay of silk, zari and threadwork, while highlighting the intricacy and extraordinary detail of the queen of silks.
The body of the sari is woven with zari and silk in delicate yellow, forming a shimmering tissue base. The elaborate embellishments upon the body, as well as on the borders and pallu, are woven in fine silken yarn in pearl grey, lending a soft lustre to the drape. The warp of the body and pallu has two threads, one of silver zari and one of thread, while the entire weft is formed of pearl grey silken yarn. The body features a delicate jaali design, beautifully adapted to the dramatic layout of the kanjivaram. Traditional annams are woven in exquisite detail on the borders amid muthu seeru enclosing rows of rudraksha motifs, all in silvery grey thread. The pallu also features annam motifs, a band of vanki or chevron patterns, and stylised leaf and floral designs.
The sari features fine zari, containing a content of 38% silver, to create a luxurious visual effect.
