What are Pochampally sarees

Pochampally sarees are crafted  in  a small town called Pochampally near Hyderabad in Andhra Pradesh. There are about 5000 handloom weavers in Pochampally who create sarees in traditional ikat work. When you visit Pochampally near Hyderabad, you can visit how the fabrics  are dyed into the various colours  and then woven.

Pochampally silk sarees are particularly very colourful and striking. The warp and weft yarns are dyed in various colours according to the design and then crafted in a loom . The loom is operated by a single person.

It would take at least 10 day to weave a beautiful Pochampally saree.

With the intervention of the State Government, several Cooperative Societies have taken it upon themselves to market the Pochamplayy sarees. Hence, there are more efforts to create new varieties of fabrics and sarees.

Pochampally dupatta and salwar suits are also available.

These saris are woven by hand in cotton and silk fabric. Pochampally ikats can be differentiated from  Orissa ikaat  by their feel. The cloth is smoother than the thicker  Orissa cloth and not quite as heavy.
