While every effort is made to present the sarees in their natural colours, subtle variations between images and actual colours may be the result of lighting conditions and digital photography, and the colour/screen settings of your digital devices.
Slight irregularities are inherent to the process of creating traditional handwoven fabric. Instead of taking away from the beauty of the saree, they enhance its uniqueness and charm. The irregularities attest to the fact that the saree is a genuine, handcrafted product.
Heritage and Origin
Select villages and weaving clusters in Andhra Pradesh are famous for a unique technique known as Kupadam which involves the use of a distinct interlocking design for weaving yarn. As a result, this art form has come to be known as Kuppadam. The Chirala community is primarily involved in weaving Kuppadam sarees. The uniqueness of the saree lies in the fact that its body and border are woven separately and then joined during the weaving process. Sarees created using the Kupadam technique typically incorporate silk, tissue or cotton yarn in the body and zari in the border. Kuppadam tissue sarees are woven from a blend of multiple fibers; they are known for their light weight and sheer, glossy look. The frequent use of motifs such as temples, sacred symbols and animals and in the border make the sarees ideal for wearing during religious ceremonies, pujas and festive occasions.
