Indian Silks And Weaving
Indian silk has been popular the world over - for its sheer variety of designs, weaving and quality. This is largely due to the fact that India has the unique distinction of producing different varieties of silk.
There are four main varieties of silk produced by a distinct variety of silkworm feeding on a specific host plant. Silk is a protien fibre, produced by the silkworm for spinning around its cocoon. This fibre (filament) is unwound to obtain silk. Yarn is produced by twisting the fibre, which is then dyed, warped and finally woven to produce fabric.
About silk sarees in India Silk weavers in India have contributed to the development and fame of Indian silk. Across the length and breadth of the country, generations of weavers continue to create magic giving their creations a distinct touch - through the use of colours and designs. Here are some traditional "types" of Indian silk available at Kalyan.
Kancheepuram The glamour of the Kancheepuram silk saree lies in its colour contrasts. Pyramidical temple borders, checks, stripes and floral "buttas" are traditional designs you will find in a Kancheepuram saree. In a genuine Kancheepuram saree, the border, body and pallav are woven separately and then interlocked together. The joint is woven so strongly that even if the saree tears, the pallav (or border) will not detach.
Ikkat and Patola Thancholi Ikkat (also known as patola in Orissa) is also created using the tie & dye method. The difference is that the method is applied to the yarn prior to weaving - and hence a far more complex procedure. There are two - one where the method is applied to the warp only, and the other where it is done on both the warp and weft. In the latter, the fabric can be used on either side. Andhra Pradesh, Gujrat and Orissa are the main centers for this kind of work.
This is a method of weaving unique to Benaras - silk fabric is woven to create a raised effect (brocade). These sarees do not have a border, however the pallav is distinctly different. Traditionally, the designs are created using floral motifs.
