Kanchi Silk goes Trendy

The previous blog on Kanchi silks gives all the needed information on this centuries old Kanchi silk. But even that can be made trendy and modern looking. Unlike the sarees posted on the previous blog this blog has sarees that are totally off-beat and very unusual. They make sarees that resemble Pavadi Davani. One of the sarees in the picture is of that kind. Also, sarees with no borders are made with motifs on the body of the saree and a very grand contrast pallu with a blouse matching to the pallu.

Do check out these two latest blogs for traditional and trendy Kanchi Silk sarees.

You may accessorize the trendy saree with a treandy looking 1gm jewelry.

Silk actually originated in China. But in India silk is synonymous with Kancheevaram. The most popular silk of all is the Kancheevaram silk or Kanchi silk. The place Kancheevaram is known for its weavers of silk material, pavadis and sarees. It takes more than a month to weave one single saree. Silk yarn is taken out of the silk-worms and then 2 or more colours are used to weave one saree with silver thread coated with gold. These are all reasons why a Kanchi saree is sold at high price. But silk is supposed to keep you cool in summer and warm in winter. Also, it lasts for decades if maintained carefully. It is quite low maintenance also.

Such a great outfit comes these days in beautiful combinations and with pretty blouses attached. They all have borders on both sides of the saree with small motifs on the body threaded with gold and has a grand pallu that flows down from a lady's shoulder with grand gold embossed designs.

Pictures of some pretty colors in kanchi silk sarees are posted here.

Don't forget to accessorize it with a beautiful 1gm gold jewelry.
