Uppada silk sarees that have caught the attention of fashion enthusiasts in the last one decade or so have a fascinating history that backdates to as old as the 18th century. Following the age old weaving technique of Jamdani practiced in Bengal for centuries became to be known as Uppada during the early 19th century when due to the industrial revolution in England that brought in machine-made Jamdani, the actual Jamdani, woven on the looms, suffered a big setback and slowly started to extinct as a result of which some designers in order to revive the traditional Jamdani trained the weavers on the Jamdani weaving technique in the village of Uppada, Andhra Pradesh and made it popular with the name Uppada sarees. This weaving technique is popularly known as Neelambari in North India. Entirely woven on pitloom where a weaver uses both hands and legs to weave a saree, weaving of Uppada sarees require a lot of patience, time and effort. These sarees with their distinct decorative patterns hold an especially high status in the society.
