Mention the word Saree and you will have all the female attention in the world directed towards you...because no other kind of apparel brings out the quintessential feminity as effectively and sensually as a saree does. And among the genres of saree available and known on the Indian Soil, Kodali karrupur form and art of sarees are the most royal and are a sure mark of taste and opulence. No wonder then that they were designed for the queens of the Maratha rulers of Tanjore. And the whole process and technique of designing them is no less lavish. These South Indian saris basically made from cotton and silk and are a harmonious blend of the two with shimmering effect of golden zari amidst prints of natural dyes.
Moreover, all the steps in designing and creating a traditional saree such as a kodali karruvar saree and blouse are carried out manually with absolutely no intervention of technology. The fabric for this traditional sari is first woven with zari intercepts. For richer appeal, brocaded cloth was used as in other South Indian sarees. After the fabric is ready, after weaving, designing process begins. The main highlight is the richly patterned pallu. Artistic border is there on both the sides of the saree fabric. The design on the pallu is an enchanting combination of block printing, painting and zari-cotton weaving. In places where block printing is to be done, cotton fabric is woven. And in rest of the area, gold zari is woven to give a shining appeal.
Special emphasis is given to the use of natural vegetable dyes instead of chemical ones and the entire fabric for the saree as well as blouse is woven on the handloom. No power looms at all.
Motifs used in these traditional sarees are mostly geometrical patterns and other objects of nature such as leaf, tilakam, bel etc.
Sometimes a single delicate motif is spun into the body of this South Indian saree at calculated distance from one another. Doing them with zari thread only adds to the richness of the sari and there is no way it can escape the attention of anyone.
The border and excerpts from pallu pattern also find place on the sleeves of the blouse to give an overall mingling effect. But sadly, this art of saree weaving has been forgotten over the years due to the emergence of power looms and chemical dyes. These modern techniques have led to availability of cheap and easily manufactured saris in the market, due to which demand for these traditional sarees have declined.
It has only been recently that the state government and the Commissioner of handlooms took measures to revive this lost and forgotten art. In modern times, getting this royal south Indian saree along with blouse would cost you somewhere around 4500-40,000 but trust me it is worth the money. The Bridal saree,shimmer of zariBusiness Management Articles, radiance of bright natural colours and the perfect harmony of natural figures are worth every cent you spend.
