                                            Indian culture has long placed a rich value on sarees. Whenever we hear saree, the first thing that comes to our mind is its rich colour and texture. India has always been blessed with skilled artisans who present our diverse heritage and stories through their art. One such exquisite piece of art is the Kanjivaram saree, which gets its name from the “City of Thousand Temples”, Kanchipuram, situated in Tamil Nadu.

                                            Kanchipuram sarees are known for their silk fabric and intricate zari work, and are rightly called the “Queen of Sarees”. Its rich, vibrant colours and bold patterns make it a must-have in your wardrobe.

                                            History of Kanjivaram Saree

                                            The Hindu mythological figure Sage Markanda referred to as God's Master Weaver, is associated with the origin of the Kanjivaram saree. It is believed that he used to weave fine pieces from the fibres of Lotus. The Kanchis are considered to be the descendants of Sage Markanda and the history of the Kanchipuram saree dates back 400 years. Two big weaving communities Devangas and Saligars moved from Andhra Pradesh to Kanchipuram and started weaving. These communities weaved the designs they used to see in the temples in Kanchipuram and other mythological scriptures on the Kanjivaram sarees.

                                            Initially, the saree used to be nine yards long, but throughout all these years, there were many modifications and changes, and now their length is six yards.

                                            Weaving And Design of Kanjivaram Saree

                                            Kanjivaram sarees are made from pure Mulberry silk. These are dyed in various colours, dipped in water and sun-dried to make them thick and stiff before being weaved into a saree. The Zari border gets its sheen due to the intertwined nature of the silver wire and pure gold thread. The classic beauty of the Kanjivaram saree is achieved via the meticulous and perfect stitching of the pallu, border, and body, which are all knitted separately.

                                            These sarees are distinguished by broad borders, that are in contrast with the colour of the body of the saree. The designs are inspired by local culture and scriptures, which include temples, animals, birds, the sun and the moon.

                                            How to Style Kanjivaram Saree

                                            • You can pair your Kanjivaram saree with a long-sleeved blouse for a sophisticated look. You may also use a piece of jewellery to enhance this look.
                                            • For a distinctive style, wear your saree with a jacket blouse. Beige and cream shades for the jacket blouse go well with your saree.
                                            • To create a unique look, pair your saree with a salwar Kurti-style blouse. Wear this ensemble with delicate jewellery like nose rings and earrings for the ideal effect.

                                            Taking Care of Kanjivaram Saree

                                            • Every 3-4 months, open your Kanjivaram saree for airing and spread it on a cool surface before refolding it. This will prevent colour from fading.
                                            • A stiff, starched texture may be seen in certain sarees. By taking off the saree and wafting it, this starch can be broken off.
                                            • Dry-washing after every 2-3 uses is considered ideal.
                                            • To restore the folds, let the saree air out as much as possible, then dry clean and iron it with a roller.
