The korvai technique of weaving Kanchipuram Handloom silk sarees | Korvai Kanchi silk sarees with prices
Kanchipuram Korvai silk sarees are a beautiful part of our festive and special moments! Kanchi sarees are believed to be woven by the descendants of Markanda, the master weaver for gods. The sheer beauty of pure silk sarees are irresistible.
Native to Kanchipuram, pure silk sarees are handcrafted on traditional looms, using pure mulberry silk from Bangalore and zari from Surat.
The iconic part of their beauty lies in their attractive colour combinations and contrasts.
Korvai technique - The contrast border rich silk sarees
There are 3 elegant parts that come together in perfect tandem to create a magnificent six yard saree.
Body - the centerpiece of the saree that gleams with eye catching buttas/jaal/brocade.
Border - the eye-catching part that has a beautiful play of colours and zari motifs/brocade
Pallu - the opulent highlight that enchants with exquisite zari brocade and motifs
You might know all this! But, have you ever wondered how these three parts merge into a saree that showcases a beautiful medley of colours?
This is where the intricate technique of korvai comes in. Thanks to this heritage rich technique, Kanchi silk sarees captivate with delightful and vivacious colour combinations!
The body and border are woven separately, and interlocked artfully with the korvai technique. Labour intensive and intricate, this process requires 2 weavers to work simultaneously on 3 shuttle looms. The pallu is then attached using the pitni technique!
The korvai technique commands reverence as the interlocking is done with perfect precision to seamlessly merge the body and border. There are no loose threads or missed joints.
From interlocked straight lines, sharp edged triangles and temple pattern, the korvai design gleams with multifaceted styles!
