Situated in Madhya Pradesh, the heart of India, Chanderi is the heartland of handloom weaving in India. A small town located close to river Betwa in Guna district, the unique silk fabric produced here is the result of traditional methods of hand-weaving that have been developed over the centuries, and passed down through generations. Chanderi Pattu Silk is known for its sheer texture, light weight and transparency. Typically worked and fringed heavily with handmade gold dots or motifs of golden thread, these pattusilk sarees have been patronised by royalty in the past. The first Indian product closest to being granted the GI status, a staggering 60% of the population of 30,000 has been involved in manufacturing and trading of this fabric for centuries.
Production of handloom in Chanderi is prevalent since early medieval times. Located strategically on the borders of Malwa and Budelkhand, the documented history of Chanderi dates back to 11th century when the town dominated the trade routes of Central India and was proximate to the ports of Gujarat in west India, Malwa and Mewar in central India as well as Deccan. As a result of this, Chanderi was always ruled by prominent rulers who to satiate their refined royal tastes, encouraged the tradition of weaving specialized Chanderi silk that continues to glorify it even today in the form of Chanderi silk sareee. Known for their sheer texture, light weight and transparency, these silk sarees are ornamented heavily with handmade gold dots or motifs of golden thread. Chanderi pattu sarees use pure mulberry silk in the warp that is brought in from Bangalore while the pure zari that adorn especially the borders of these sarees are procured from Surat. Woven by the Kohlis and the Julaha community of weavers for centuries, this land of looms will continue to clack in the times to come too.
