India’s rich cultural heritage is the reason why the country has a history of handlooms. Every corner of India speaks for its own weaving and draping style for sarees. We have about 60 kinds of weaving patterns originating from the rural India alone. There is a range of quintessential Indian handloom beyond the usual gota-patti, half-saris, embellished gowns and subtle sheers that we come across.

Saualkuchi, Assam

It is woven from fine mulberry silk string which originates in South India and the zari that originates in Gujarat. The border shading and pattern are typically unique from the rest of the saree. Kanchipuram silk is recognized by its wide contrasting borders which could have checks, stripes or flower.

Kota, Rajasthan
