Kancheepuram is famous for hand-made sarees

Kancheepuram is famous for hand-woven sarees

What is special about Kancheepuram silk?

Kancheepuram (Kanjivaram) silk is most superior among the silk saris, and it is the pride of a South Indian bride to present herself in the bright Kancheepuram si
lk fabrics at the time of her wedding. These world famous saris are a treasured part of every South Indian bride’s trousseau.

Not only for the wedding, Kancheepuram silk sari is considered as a dignified attire among South Indian women, whether young or old, to wear for the various festivals and functions.

The unique feature of Kanjivaram silk saris is its special weaving technique – one that uses three single threads of silk yarn along with zari. This accounts for its durability and lustre.

The Kancheepuram silk sarees are woven from pure mulberry silk which makes the texture enviable, luster and durable. In a Kancheepuram silk sari, the border, body and the pallu are woven separately and then interlocked together. The ethnic beauty and value of a Kancheepuram silk sari is enriched by the gold in the motifs. These motifs are incorporated by dipping the silk threads into liquid gold and silver. These saris are hand woven using the highest quality silk and pure gold thread.

Today designer silk sarees with embroidery or even embellished with cystals are also available.

Color combinations

Kancheepuram saris are always considered the ceremonial wear at religious rituals and weddings.

The glamour of the Kancheevaram silk saree lies in its colour contrasts. Pyramidical temple borders, checks, stripes and floral “buttas”. Some of the combination are orange and pink, peach and green,blue and maroon, blue and copper pink, coffee brown and violet, parrot green and red, dark green and red,maroon and violet, purple and pink, black traditional pure silk Kanchipuram saree with orange contrast border, grey and blue etc.These sarees breathtakingly gorgeous in its intricate zari woven design.There are several designs in this elegant fabric such as temple, elephant, kings, queens, flowers, peacocks etc. Since these are hand woven saris spending many days in the making, they are costlier too. For many people in Kanchipuram, weaving this type of sari is their profession from generations.Shoppers from all parts of India come to Kancheepuram to buy these silk sarees directly from the weavers and spend hours and days together in making their selection of various designs.

You can find Kancheepuram silk saris in various bright colors with contrast border and gold zari dots and patterns.

Where is Kancheepuram?

Kancheepuram, a small town in Tamil Nadu of southern India, is well known all over the world for its production of the famous silk saris, called as Kancheepuram silk. Kanchipuram district is situated on the north-eastern coast of Tamilnadu, adjacent to the Bay of Bengal and Chennai city, bounded in the west by Vellore and Thiruvannamalai district, in the north by Thiruvallur district and Chennai district, in the south by Villupuram district, in the east by Bay of Bengal. Kanchipuram was the historical capital of the Pallavas during the 7th and 9th centuries.

Textile Treasures: Shawls and Sarees

The textile collection of the Salar Jung Museum has both vastness and variety. One comes across Kashmir shawls, Patola sarees, Banarasi sarees, jamdanis of Lucknow, Kanthas of Bengal, Phulkari of Punjab, Chamba rumals. This exhibit highlights some Kashmiri shawls and  Banarasi odhnis and sarees from the collection.


Salar Jung Museum has a rich collection of Kashmir shawls from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. A ruler of Kashmir, Zain-ul-abidin from the 15th century patronised shawl-weaving. He was a lover of the arts and introduced Turkistan weavers for shawl making. The word shawl is derived from Persian “shal” originally representing a class of woven fabric. Emperor Akbar was also fascinated with the Kashmir shawl. It finds mention in the Rajatarangini and the Ain-i-akbari. In this 18th century miniature painting, Sultan Abdullah Qutub Shah of Golconda is seen seated and wearing a blue shawl.
Kashmir Shawls: Inspired by Nature
In India, the shawl is worn as a shoulder-mantle and was originally a male garment, the finest having been worn by nobility. There is evidence that Sultan Abdullah Qutb Shah of Golconda (seen in the previous slide) used to wear Kashmir shawls. The shawls have rich decorative design which were either embroidered or woven on them. The turanj, a decorated mango shaped design is a favourite on the shawls.
The shawls are usually made from wool but can also be a fabric of mixed yarn. The variety of design is definitely inspired from nature, not surprising from the land of picturesque valleys and mountains.

Kanchipuram Silk Saree

Origin & History Kanchipuram Silk Saree

A famous king of the Chola dynasty ruled Kancheepuram between the years 985 and 1014, who took an initiative of silk trade. It was during the reign of Krishna-Deva Raya, when the famous weaving communities of Andhra Pradesh, the Devangas and Saligars, migrated to Kanchipuram. Thus, occurred the historical migration of the entire silk industry in the 15th century, to this city.
The two weaving communities were exclusively acknowledged for their skills at weaving silk. The weaving industry was temporarily halted during the French invasion in the 17th century. It rejuvenated and revamped its style in the 18th century. Today, it ranks among the most popular silks in the world. Very few stand out in the competition against Kanjeevarum silks. The British translated the Kanchipuram silks to Conjeevaram silks, also known as Kanjeevarum silks.

Evolution & People Behind the Art

This fabric is an inherent part of several traditional and religious ceremonies. Kanchipuram silks have created the main occupation for several in the city of Kanchipuram. The silk bears the images of all the scriptures embossed on the walls of the temples of the Kanjeevarum village.
Over decades, Kanchipuram silk has been evolving in terms of design and pattern but hasn’t lost its charm. Initially sold across the world by only merchants, today the real weavers have woken up to their own cooperative societies to sell their woven Kanjeevarum silk.

The Making & Style

The silk that is obtained from the sericulture of the mulberry worm is finely converted to produce the Kanjeevaram silk. These hand woven sarees hold their charm in the double warp and double wept, and are known for the 1.2 inches of the warp frame that can hold up to about 60 holes through which would be woven the 240 warp threads.
Around 250-300 threads would be woven into the wept. This eventually allows the saree to remain sturdy.  Generally, the zari used in a Kanchipuram silk saree would be in gold and silver with silver running in first, coated with gold later.
The sarees woven hence from this silk are mostly hand woven to design the best collection. The famous weavers of the city of Kanjeevarum have developed the art of converting this fabric into beautifully designed sarees. The designs are inspired by the scriptures and art of the temples in Kanchipuram.


Kanchipuram silk initially started with the 9-yard sarees that were woven to blend well with the culture of designing and patterning temple stories. Over a period of time, these sarees were converted to 6 yards with gold zari weaving. To make it available for every budget, these days there are Kanchipuram silk sarees woven in artificial gold zari, without loosing upon the shining glory of this textile.


The saree has evolved in terms of textures and shapes have taken over the scriptures and art of the silk sarees. Each texture and desi have a name allotted to it with which it is best known. Thandavalam is one such patterned saree where parallel lines describe the saree.

Wearing the Attire

Being the lustrous silk, Kanchipuram has got the charm of Wedding, Cermony or any other festival. Since, silk is a thick weave, it is more suitable for cold climatic conditions.
Accessorizing with the traditional gold jewelry is the trend followed.


Dry cleaning is the preferred method. One should keep them outside plastic bags in a nicely folded state. One can use some pre-washing techniques as well.

Important Facts & Information

  • This silk was considered to be Lord Shiva’s and Lord Vishnu’s favorite fabric as per the legends
  • Accidental Husband is one of the few Hollywood movies that saw this attire on the big screen

காஞ்சிபுரம் பட்டு:

காஞ்சிபுரத்தை பற்றி ஒரு பழமொழி உண்டு. 'காஞ்சீபுரம் சென்றால் காலாட்டிக்கொண்டே சாப்பிடலாம்' என்பதாகும். இதன் அர்த்தம் --- காஞ்சீபுரம் சென்றால் கைத்தறி நெசவு நெய்து, பணம் சம்பாதித்து சாப்பிடலாம் என்பதாகும்.
கைத்தறியில் நெசவு நெய்யும் போது, கையையும் காலையும் பயன் படுத்த வேண்டும். அதாவது கையையும் காலையும் ஆட்டிக்கொண்டே என்பதன் அர்த்தமாகும். காஞ்சிபுரம் நெசவுத்தொழிலுக்கும் மிகவும் புகழ் பெற்றது.
பட்டுச் சேலை நெய்யும் முறை:
காஞ்சிபுரத்தில் பட்டு சேலைகள், கோர்த்து வாங்கும் முறை, கோர்த்து வாங்காமல் சாதாரண வாட் முறை என இரண்டு முறைகளில் நெய்யப்படுகிறது.
பட்டுச் சேலைகளில் பயன்படுத்தப்படும் ஜரிகையின் தரம் முக்கியம். 245 கிராம் ஜரிகை ஒரு மார்க் என அழைக்கப்படுகிறது. இதில் 191 கிராம் வெள்ளி (78சதவீதம்), 51.55 கிராம் பட்டு (21சதவீதம்), 2.45 கிராம் தங்கம் (1 சதவீதம்) இருக்கும். தற்போது இந்நிலை இல்லை.
காஞ்சிபுரம் பட்டுக் கூட்டுறவு சங்கங்களில் தங்கம் 0.59 சதவீதம், வெள்ளி 57 சதவீதம், பட்டு 24 சதவீதம், காப்பர் 18.41 சதவீதம் பயன்படுத்தப்படுகிறது. பெரும்பாலான காஞ்சிபுரம் பட்டுச் சேலைகளில் இரு புறமும் ஜரிகை பார்டர் இருக்கும்.
ஜரிகை பார்டர் 2 முதல் 8 அங்குலம் அகலம் கொண்டதாக இருக்கும். சேலை மற்றும் முந்தியை தனியே நெய்து சேர்ப்பர்.இதை பிட்னி என்று பெயர்.
முகூர்த்த பட்டுப்புடவை தயாரிக்க 350 கிராமிலிருந்து 450 கிராம் வரை ஜரிகை, 500 கிராம் பட்டு நூல் தேவை. மூலப்பொருட்கள் விலை உயர்வால் முகூர்த்த பட்டுப்புடவை விலை குறைந்தபட்சம் 35 ஆயிரம் ரூபாய் என விற்கப்படுகிறது.
பட்டு வரலாறு:
தமிழர்கள் பண்டைக் காலம் முதற்கொண்டு பட்டு, கம்பளி ஆடைகளை அணிந்தும் சரிகைகள் இணைந்த ஆடைகளைப் புனைந்தும் வந்துள்ளனர்.
ஆடை நெசவுக்கலை 5000 ஆண்டுகள் பழைமை வாய்ந்தது என்பதைச் சிந்து சமவெளி நாகரிகச் சின்னங்களில் காணப்படும்ஆடைகள் உணர்த்துகின்றன.
வனப்பும் மென்மையும் மிகுந்த ஆடைகள் தமிழகத்தில் நெய்யப்பட்டு பயன்பாட்டில் இருந்ததுடன், அவை வெளிநாடுகளுக்கும் ஏற்றுமதிசெய்யப்பட்டன.
ஆதிச்ச நல்லூரில் புதைக்கப்பட்டவர்கள் தாமிரபரணி ஆற்றங்கரையில் நெல், பருத்திஆகியவற்றை விவசாயம் செய்தது மட்டுமல்ல நெசவுத் தொழிலும் செய்து வந்தனர் என்று அறியமுடிகிறது.
கி .பி . 985-ல் தமிழகத்தில் இராஜராஜ சோழன்காலத்தில் பட்டு நெசவு செழிப்புற்று வளர்ந்தது . தஞ்சைப் பெரியகோவிலின் கோபுரத்தின் உட்புறத்தில் தீட்டப்பட்டுள்ள ஓவியத்தில்மன்னர் இராஜராஜன் தன் மனைவியருடன் பட்டாடையில், நடராஜரை வழிபடுவதான காட்சி இன்றளவும் காணப்படுவதாகக் கூறப்படுகிறது.
உறையூரில் முன்காலத்தில் நெசவுத் தொழிலுக்குச் சாயமிடும் தொட்டி காணப்பட்டதாகவும். உறையூரில் நெசவு செய்யப்பட சேலைகள் ஒரு தேங்காய் மூடியில் அடைக்கக் கூடிய அளவுக்கு மெல்லியதாக இருந்ததாகவும் கூறப்படுகிறது. காஞ்சிபுரம் பட்டு வரலாறு
காஞ்சிபுரம் பட்டு பராமரிப்பு:
பட்டு சேலையை பராமரிப்பது ஒரு தனி ஸ்டைல். முறையாக பராமரித்து வந்தால் பல ஆண்டுகள் நன்றாக இருக்கும்.
1. விஷேசங்களுக்கு சென்று வந்தவுடன் பட்டு புடவையை களைந்து உடனே மடித்து வைக்க கூடாது.நிழலில் காற்றாட 2 அல்லது 3 மணி நேரம் உலரவிட்டு பின்பு அதனை கைகளால் அழுத்தி தேய்த்து மடித்து எடுத்து வைக்கவேண்டும்.

6.பட்டுப்புடவைகளை அட்டை பெட்டிகளிலோ, பிளாஸ்டிக் கவர்களிலோ வைப்பதை காட்டிலும் துணிப்பைகளில் வைத்தல் அதன் தன்மையை பாதுகாக்கும்.
