With latest embellished Designer Sarees thronging every store or online shopping store, it seems as though the traditional Silk Sarees have somewhere faded into oblivion. Nevertheless, there still remain quite a few connoisseurs of the traditional art of woven Silk Sarees who help to keep this art alive even today.
Of all the varieties of Indian Silk Sarees available, the most popular Silk Saree is the Kancheepuram Saree also known as the Kanjeevaram Saree . The natural fiber of silk is obtained from the cocoons made by silkworms which are eventually woven into stunningly gorgeous Kanchipuram Sarees . The nature and structure of the natural silk fiber account for the luster and sheen that a Kanchipuram Silk Saree emits. Kanchipuram Silk Saree gets its name from the small town named Kanchipuram in South India where these Silk Sarees are manufactured. Kancheepuram Sarees are popular worldwide for the thick and lustrous quality of the silk and, of course, for the stunning zari woven pattern that adorns each and every Kanchipuram Silk Saree. The body of a Kanchipuram Silk Saree is in one shade while the border and the lower pallu of the Kanchipuram Silk Saree is in a contrast but complementary shade featuring glamorous golden zari woven ornate design. This makes every Kanchipuram Silk Saree highly attractive. The pallu end usually features tassels. Every Kanchi Silk Saree comes with a matching blouse which is in a shade similar to the border and pallu of the Silk Saree rather than the main body of the Kanchipuram Silk Saree. The collection of Kancheepuram Silk Sarees at Cbazaar includes Silk Sarees in both, rich and deep shades as well as light and pastel shades to cater to every liking.
