Kanchipuram silk sarees are one of the most prominent and sought-after sarees in India. Most apt for just about every occasion and celebration, this ethnic wonder is South India’s competitor to the immensely famous Banarasi silk sarees from North India. Kanchipuram silk sarees are distinguished by its rich use of colors and fine gold zari work that produces beautiful patterns and motifs.
Kanchipuram sarees are named after the city of their origin. This city of Kanchipuram in southern India is also called Silk City because many people who live there earn their livelihood by weaving silk sarees. Shining border, graceful textures and appealing colors with finely woven motifs and patterns in the form of South Indian temples, peacock, flowers, and tales from the Hindu epics like the Mahabharata, the Ramayana, and the Bhagwat Gita enhance the beauty of these sarees.
