An example of a silk saree is the Kanjivaram silk saree, commonly referred to as the Kanchipuram saree and made in the Tamil Nadu state of India’s Kanchipuram town. These sarees are renowned for their luxurious appearance, lustrous sheen, and gorgeous patterns. They are highly treasured by saree enthusiasts and regarded as one of the finest sarees in India.
Pure mulberry silk thread is used in the weaving of Kanjivaram silk sarees, which have elaborate motifs and patterns that are frequently inspired by nature, mythology, and temples. Typically, the saree’s borders and pallu (the decorative end piece that falls over the shoulder) are woven separately and then linked with the saree’s body using a unique weaving method known as Korvai.
