Kanakavalli Kanjivaram Silk Sari 22-040-HS001-11456
This July, Kanakavalli's pick for The Beautiful Drape is from the design-led Vault collective of classic format weaves that are exclusive to the brand.
This striking heirloom kanjivaram in deep navy blue shot with dark violet is woven entirely by hand on an adai loom. The body of the kanjivaram is woven with zari checks known as ettu kol kattam, highlighted with delicate muthu in parrot green and leaf green silk. The borders feature bhugodi triangles, moplah lines in parrot green silk, muthu seeru, benaras patterns and jadai nagam, a motif resembling the form of a serpent, inspired by a traditional bridal hair ornament. The borders are also embellished with a band in parrot green silk, as well as hints of scarlet, sap green and moss green, echoing the silk muthu kattam on the body.
The pallu is embellished with ettu kol reku, gold bands with temple motifs, highlighted with leaf green stripes.
The beauty of the weave lies in its simple but exquisite geometry, and its delicate interplay of colour.
The zari in this sari contains 40% of silver and 0.3% of gold.
Approximate Length - 5.4 meters + 0.65 to 0.7 meters (attached blouse)
