A major textile center of Tamil Nadu, Salem with more than 125 spinning mills and weaving units is a booming industry. Though the handloom history of the city dates back before independence, it was not something to boast about until the 1960s when there was less than a handful spinning mills. However after 1960, private handloom weaving along with large-scale cooperative handloom weaving and marketing units saw a boom and along with them some small-scale hand-dyeing units were also set and slowly the textile industry of this place grew by 1980s. Today, while handloom weaving is a dying art in many parts of the country, it is a booming industry in Salem. The entire Salem district has about 20,000 families with more than 50,000 laborers who depend on weaving Salem sarees for a living. The other villages that manufacture silk saris in Salem district are Maaramangalam, Olapatti, Thindamangalam, Semmalapatti ,Vanavasi, Nagavalli, Mechaeri and Elampillai. While Salem district is known for weaving sarees in silk, cotton and polyester, handloom silk sarees from Salem are widely popular. Known for their good quality silk, salem pattu sarees feature distinguished butta designs on their pallu and border. These pure silk sarees from Salem are especially popular for their durability of yarn colors, thanks to the rich history of dyeing industry. Made of 100% genuine silk, the soft and durable salem silk sarees come in a variety of vibrant colors. While they are as elegant and graceful as the Kanchipurams or the Arni silks from the neighboring towns, they are more affordable, one of the reasons why it is a flourishing industry here even today.

Shatika: Unveil the Beauty of Indian Heritage through Indian Handloom Sarees
Since the dawn of civilization, handlooms have been associated with excellence in India’s artistry in textiles and fabrics, and sari which is considered to be the most ancient piece of clothing has been inspiring generations of artists and craftsmen to weave their dreams and visions into creating exquisite handloom sarees. However with passage of time, just like the clacking sounds of the looms, the dreams and visions of these weaves too are fading away.In an attempt to bring handloom sarees back in vogue, Shatika has begun a revolution; a six yard sari revolution is a humble attempt at bringing back the lost love for handloom sarees. Dedicated to creating a unique interpretation of the age old craft, we travel to all colourful corners of the country visiting weavers,guiding them on the latest trends so they weave out the age old tradition with a modern touch and bring them online so you can savor the delights of hand picking them from the comfort of your homes.
