South India is a treasure trove of handloom sarees with age old weaving clusters spread out in the remotest corners here. Keepers of age old tradition of handlooms, the four south Indian states are like Char Dham, the four pilgrimage sites of India, for handlooms. Following the centuries old legacy and passing on the skill from generation to generation, the makers of south Indian handloom sarees have not just managed to keep the handloom industry afloat but also made it a popular wear worldwide by reinventing and refurbishing their weave from time to time. Some of the sarees from South India that have made a mark for themselves are Kanchipuram silks, Arni silks and Salem silks from Tamil Nadu, Bangalore silks, Mysore silks and Mysore chiffons from Karnataka and Kasavu silk and cotton sarees from Kerala. Andhra Pradesh is the producer of maximum varieties of south india silk sarees and south india cotton sarees some of them being Dharmavaram silks, Gadwal silks, cottons, Pochampally silks and cottons, Mangalgiri cottons, Uppada soft silks and Narayanpet silks.
South Indian sarees have always been a privileged choice of women all over. While the silk sarees are a preferred choice for all special occasions like weddings, festivals and social gatherings, the south cottons are liked for their comfort and are preferred office wears. Known for their fine quality silk and cotton fabric, vibrant colors, their contrast borders and pallus, rich zari and thread work and elaborate motifs and designs, these south India handloom sarees are like cousins as they, in many ways show some similarities and yet each weave shouts out uniqueness. For example, while Pochampally is renowned for its unique ikat dye, the Gadwal sarees are famous for their separately attached kuttu silk ornate borders and pallu. Kanchipuram silk sarees are known for showcasing Dravidian heritage in their motifs in real zari and simple Mysore chiffons stand out in their thin lace borders and bold single colors. All put together, these sarees from south India make for a colorful tapestry that adorns the rich and beautiful cultural heritage of India.
