A good mix of grandeur of silk and comfort of cotton, Gadwal Sico Sarees hail from a small town of Gadwal which is situated between the rivers Tungabhadra and Krishna over an area of about 800 sq.miles. Often lightweight and effortless in draping on, Gadwal silk cotton sarees are renowned for admirable zari patterns and well-crafted Kuttu borders and pallus. Kuttu which means stich in the local language is an incredible art of joining in the pure silk border and pallu of the sari through weaving, after the sari has been woven. Most of the weavers in Gadwal speak Marathi and belong to the Hindu community. Infact according to the Hindu mythology, they are identified as the descendants of Jeeveshwar Maharaj – weaver of Hindu Devi-Devtas. A remarkable trait of getting folded down to the size of a matchbox and the other distinct qualities make Gadwal and Gadwal sarees legendary to India.
One of the variants of the Gadwal sarees in a fine blend of cotton and silk threads are Gadwal silk cotton sarees. This variant of Gadwal saree is becoming more and more popular with women today and is a preferred wear at workplace as well as functions, parties and weddings because it caters to their preference for sheen of silk while giving them something more lighter and affordably priced than silk. This variety of Gadwal sarees are more popularly known as Gadwal sico sarees are popular since 1930’s. Most notable for their contrasting border and pallu that is adorned in zari, Gadwal sico sarees showcase traditional patterns such as nature inspired paisley and peacock motifs as well as motifs inspired by religious architecture are also used to embellish these classic sarees. Depending on heaviness of work and wearability, the border of the saree may be thick or thin and can be classified as traditional and modern. To embellish the saree further, tassels are made at the end of the pallu with the warp filaments of the fabric itself thus not just beautifying but giving them a rich and traditional look.
