Kancheepuram Sarees

Unravelling The Noble Legacy

Kancheepuram sarees are synonymous with exuding majestic craftsmanship and imparting the rich heritage of India. These sarees, which have been weaved for generations and are regarded as the best in the nation, are native to the town of Kanchipuram in Tamil Nadu.

Silk weaving flourished under royal patronage during the ancient Chola era 4 centuries ago, which is where the history of Kancheepuram sarees begins. Kancheepuram saree motifs are inspired by nature, mythical themes, and temple architecture, which reflect South India’s rich cultural legacy.

Skilled artisans hand-weave each Kancheepuram saree, which might take weeks or even months to finish. The weaving process uses age-old methods that have been handed down through decades of practice, such as pit looms and pure gold or silver zari threads for adornment. These sarees are precious possessions that are frequently handed down as heirlooms from one generation to the next.

Exploring The Intricate Weaves

Kancheepuram sarees have a timeless elegance where every thread promises to weave a tale of tradition and exquisite craftsmanship. The intricate patterns and weaving techniques used to create these sarees are a testament to the talented artisans who bring them to life. 

Kancheepuram sarees enthral with their vivid colours and exquisite designs, which range from the stunning temple motifs to the intricate paisley patterns. As only the finest zari threads and pure mulberry silk are used, each saree is an artistic work and exudes luxury. Every design on a Kancheepuram saree offers a tale rich in history and tradition, whether it’s the elegant peacock designs standing for beauty and grace or the classic mango motifs signifying fertility and prosperity.

Kancheepuram Varieties

Seematti offers a wide variety of Kancheepuram sarees that come in various types, each distinguished by its weaving technique, motifs, and embellishments. Every one of our sarees is customised and one-of-a-kind. 

  1. Traditional: Classic designs including geometric patterns, peacocks, elephants, and flowers may be found on these sarees. Their elaborate pallus, which are frequently woven with gold or silver zari, and prominent borders are what define them.
  1. Temple Borders: As the name implies, temple towers (gopurams), chariots, and idols are among the architecturally inspired designs adorning the borders of these sarees. They are frequently worn for religious rituals and weddings and are highly regarded for their traditional appeal.
  1. Check Designs: The body, or pallu, of these sarees is woven with squares or check patterns. With contrasting borders and pallus to complement the varying sizes of the checks, the traditional designs get a modern twist.
  1. Dual Tone: Two distinct coloured yarns are used in the weaving of dual-tone sarees, which produces an amazing visual impact. The pallu and borders of the saree may be a different shade from the body, creating a visually arresting contrast.
  1. Jacquard: Complex patterns and decorations are woven into the saree using the jacquard weaving process. Frequently incorporated into the fabric, these sarees showcase intricate patterns and motifs that enhance the overall appearance by providing depth and texture.
  1. Lightweight: Lightweight versions of Kancheepuram sarees are becoming more and more fashionable, despite the traditional garments’ complex designs and hefty silk construction. These sarees are more appropriate for everyday use and informal wear because they are made of softer silk and have delicate designs.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Kancheepuram saree?

The traditional silk sarees from the town of Kanchipuram in Tamil Nadu, India are called Kancheepuram sarees, sometimes called Kanchipuram or Kanjivaram sarees. Rich fabric, vivid colors, and detailed designs—which sometimes include flower motifs, checks, stripes, and temple borders—are what make them so well-known.

How to identify the original Kancheepuram silk saree?

As Kanchipuram/Kanjivaram silk sarees have a smooth, glossy texture, moving your hands over them should feel soft and cause a change in palm temperature. It is not real if there is no change in temperature and you sense a rough texture or area. Since pure Kancheepuram sarees are handwoven, the pattern may appear slightly uneven upon careful inspection. On the other hand, flawlessly woven fake Kancheepuram sarees are usually created on a power loom. Indeed, unlike fake ones, handwoven Kancheepuram sarees will also have a smooth interior.

What is the difference between Kanchipuram and Kanjivaram Sarees?

There is no difference between Kanjivaram and Kancheepuram Saree; they are simply the same thing. Because of its geographic origins, it is also known as Kanchipuram.

How many yards is a Kanchipuram saree?

The majority of Kanchipuram silk sarees are composed of six yards of beautifully woven silk. Still, there is also a classic Nine Yards Silk Saree known as Madisar that is worn at weddings and other significant events.

How can I identify an authentic Kancheepuram saree?

Authentic Kancheepuram sarees are usually made of higher-quality silk and zari, which makes them heavier. Look for rich colors, complex weaving patterns, and the signature silk mark label, which attests to the silk’s purity.

How do you ensure the quality of your Kancheepuram sarees?

Our sarees are sourced directly from Kanchipuram’s expert weavers, who use the best silk and authentic zari. Before being put up for sale, every saree undergoes a strict quality inspection to make sure it lives up to our high standards.
