Kanakavalli Kanjivaram Silk Sari 23-595-HS001-08060

Sale priceRs. 33,340.00

Kanakavalli's March pick for The Beautiful Drape is a simple but stunning kanjivaram that features classic elements and techniques with an unusual play on colour.

The body of the sari in green shot with burgundy is dotted with gold iruthalai pakshi or two-headed bird motifs, also called gandaberunda, a symbol of victory.
The borders in green shot with red are adorned with oosi kattam or 'needle checks' in gold zari, formed from delicate crisscrossing vaira oosi (diamond needle) stripes. The borders are referred to as rettai seeru pettu, lined by two rows of zari on either side.
The pallu is attached in the benth technique - a weave interlock created to even out the section of yarn where two dyes spillover into each other. It features bulb moggu (inspired by light bulb shapes), alongside a benaras twill weave band, thuthiripoo motifs, yaanai (elephants), diamond motifs, yalis and a band of diamond kann (dotted diamond shapes that resemble eyes).

The zari in this sari contains 0.3% gold and 25% silver.

Approximate Length - 5.4 meters + 0.65 to 0.7 meters (attached blouse)
Height - 1.12 - 1.17 meters.

Approximate weight - 570 grams.
