Kanjivaram silk sarees are popularly referred to as the ‘Queen of Sarees’ because of their lustre, durability, and glimmer from the exquisite zari work. Worn across all ages for all kinds of functions and ceremonies, they form a much desired part of an Indian Bride’s trousseau and are often passed down generations. Usually, the quality of the sari is graded based on how heavy the saree is. The heavier the saree, the better the quality. This saree is best described as a lustrous silk saree with zari work. Zari is metallic thread usually made from gold or silver and interwoven with the silk to create various motifs. Traditionally, motifs for Kanjivaram Saree are heavily drawn from the style and architecture of the Pallava Dynasty- their temples, palaces and paintings. However, nowadays, even scenes from great Indian Epics of Ramayana and Mahabharata can be seen. With passage of time, one can also see use of tribal and contemporary motifs. Some common and favourite traditional motifs are – jasmine bud within a square or a round frame, locally known as mallimaggu, or Thandavalam where parallel lines run across the body of the Saree.
