Saree Shops in Chennai: If we ask you to name one gorgeous garment that never goes out of fashion, you might probably come up with the answer: “Saree”. And when you are in Chennai, you cannot miss out on something as exquisite as Kanjivaram aka Kanchipuram sarees. Here we list down the best saree shops in Chennai
The Kanjivaram saree borrows its name from the small town of Kanchipuram in Tamil Nadu. Legend has it that the Kanchi silk weavers trace their line of descent to Sage Markanda. He is considered as the master weaver for the Gods themselves.
Kanjivaram sarees feature rich designs, deep colours and intricate details. This is the reason why they are simply perfect for any festive occasion.
Considered as a heritage weave, Kanchipuram saree is an embodiment of fine quality and craftsmanship. The original ones are woven from the purest mulberry silk (from South India) along with gold and silver Zari threads (from Gujarat). You may also notice the difference between the colour and designs (inspired by ancient temples) of the body from that of the pallu. Craftsmen actually weave these parts separately and join them together at a later stage.
No wonder these sarees are quite expensive but are certainly worth the investment. Nalli is one of the legendary Silk showrooms in Chennai with some really exquisite-looking Kanjivaram sarees. Another popular store called RmKV Silks also boasts a great collection of sarees. They offer everything from Kanjivaram silk to raw silk to Mysore silk and much more.
