History of The Kanjivaram Silk Saree
History of The Kanjivaram Silk Saree

Indian culture takes immense pride in handwoven fabrics that carry historical stories in every weave. A handwoven saree speaks volumes about Indian handloom heritage and tradition when worn and is a symbol of the Indian identity.


Kanjivaram - The History and Origin

The quintessential Kanjivaram is an affair of love for the women of India. The timeless Kanjivaram silk saree got its name from the temple city of Kanchipuram in Tamil Nadu, India. Kanjivaram silk sarees have their origins in Hindu mythology. The Kanchi Silk Weaver is believed to be a descendant of Sage Markanda, the Gods' Master Weaver. The glorious Kanjivaram weave has a history of 400 years and it is said that the two large weaving communities Devangas and Saligars from Andhra Pradesh relocated to Kanchipuram to weave Kanjivaram sarees. It is their weaving skills with which they weaved enchanting designs of temples and mythological scriptures they saw in the city of Kanchipuram. Soon after Kanjivaram sarees became famous they were worn by the royals on important occasions and by brides at their weddings.


The Weave

The vintage weaves of Kanjivaram silk sarees are made from heavy and pure mulberry silk that is dyed in vibrant colours and dipped in rice water and sun-dried to make it thick and stiff before weaving them into a saree. The silk thread is intertwined with fine silver wire and pure gold thread that gives the Zari border its distinctive sheen and strength. The significance of the Kanjivaram silk saree lies in its unique weave, called the korvai weave. 


Typically, three shuttles are used to weave a Kanchipuram sari. A weaving frame with 240 holes in the warp and 60 holes in the weft is used to weave this 6-yards wonder which makes it extremely strong. Another interesting fact about weaving a Kanjivaram silk saree which makes it different from other silk sarees is that the border and the body is weaved separately and then interlocked. The joint weave is so strong that even if the saree tears the border will not detach. The mundhi (part of the saree that falls over the shoulder) if has to be in a different shade, is woven separately and is attached using a zigzag stitch. A kanjivaram saree can be up to 2 kg heavy.


Design and Varieties

Kanjivaram sarees are distinguished by the broad borders that are in contrasting colours to the body of the saree. The designs on a kanjivaram saree are usually inspired by scriptures from the temples of Kanchipuram and South India which include temples, stripes, checks, florals, animals, the sun, and the moon. They also have motifs and patterns that depict mythological stories that are minutely detailed adding charm to their beauty. 


There are different varieties of Kanjivaram sarees. Initially, they were woven in a length of 9 yards, which now is reduced to 6 yards for practical reasons. The Zari work made of gold and silver is replaced with metal and copper to make it cost-effective and affordable for everyone. The different types of Kanjivaram include Thread Brocade Kanjivaram, Pattupettu Kanjivaram, Korvai Kanjivaram, Without Border Kanjivaram, Checked Kanjivaram, Traditional Kanjivaram, Zari Brocade Kanjivaram, and the Classic Kanjivaram


Kanjivaram sarees come in a range of beautiful shades and hues that are a treat to the eyes.


Geographical Indication

The government of Tamil Nadu applied and got Kanchipuram recognized as a Geographical Indication from the Government of India in the year 2006.


Kanjivaram - A Legacy

How many times have you been mesmerized by seeing a woman beautifully gracing a Kanjivaram? The Kanjivaram silk sarees, till today, are an essential part of a woman’s wardrobe and are an integral part of divine occasions. In India gold is considered a symbol of purity, wealth, and power, and the amalgamation of silk with gold in the weaving of a Kanjivaram saree makes it an undisputable legacy. It is not just for the love of silk sarees but the tales of the hands of weavers who put in labor and craftmanship and carry the history and tradition so beautifully for centuries that makes Kanjivaram a possession to behold.

How To Care For A Silk Saree
How To Care For A Silk Saree

Silk sarees are a luxury because hours of labour and creativity go into making one. Every woman will have at least one silk saree of her mother or an important woman in her life or even one that she loves. Buying a silk saree is an investment and it requires quite an effort to retain its grandeur and charm. With proper care, a silk saree can be preserved for years. 


Tips for preserving a silk saree:

How to wash silk sarees at home?

1. Wash them gently in plain cold water

Plain water is the best option for washing silk sarees at home, at least for the first few washes. Soak the silk saree in cold water for at least 15 minutes, don’t use soap or harsh detergents, and use mild detergents that are free from chemicals as silk is a very delicate and sensitive fibre.  


2. Wash them separately

It is always advised to wash silk sarees separately to prevent them from being colour stained. Washing them separately helps maintain the fabric with its original shine. For the first few washes, wash the pallu and border separately. 


3. Do not use the brush

Most people use a brush if the silk saree is stained and end up pulling out the delicate threads. Remove stains immediately by running under cold water and wiping them with a gentle cloth and if you discover it late, try using a mild solution with a pH-neutral formula that does not bleach and fade the shine and colour of the silk saree. 


4. Do not twist or squeeze the saree

Never twist the silk saree as it might leave permanent wrinkles. To remove excess water gently squeeze the silk saree and let the water drip when drying. Don’t keep silk sarees wet for a long time which will reduce the strength of the silk fibres and reduces longevity.


5. Do not dry it under direct sunlight

Always dry silk sarees in a cool and shaded place, never dry them under direct sunlight as they might fade or discolour. Silk sarees dry quickly but before folding them pat dry with a fluffy towel to ensure that there is no moisture retained.


6. Dry clean 

Silk sarees should not be washed often, try not to wash them as much as possible. Dry cleaning is the best way to wash your silk saree but don’t do it often which will reduce the lustre of the silk. Dry cleaning also removes hard stains and doesn’t alter the consistency of the silk threads.


How to store silk sarees?

1. Hang or fold them

Hanging them is the suggested way to store silk sarees but do not use metal hangers as they might react with silk and leave rust stains. If you do not have space to hang them, you can fold them gently and store them separately from other fabrics. 


2. Wrap silk sarees in a muslin cloth 

If you really want your silk sarees to last for a long time, wrap them in muslin cloth or paper to avoid friction, especially if it has embroidery. 


3. Change the folding once in a while

Leaving silk sarees in the same fold will make them wear out along the folds. It is good to keep them out to air dry and change the folds once in a while to maintain the strength of the silk. If your silk saree has embroidery work, make sure that it is folded on the inside to preserve it.


4. Use naphthalene balls

Store them in a dry cupboard and use naphthalene balls to prevent moths and fungus. Do not keep the naphthalene balls in contact with the silk saree because they can discolour the zari. Another alternative naphthalene ball is dry neem leaves because they have natural anti-fungal properties.


How to iron silk sarees?

Ironing a silk saree should be done with caution and is advised to iron them in the right setting for silk at low heat. It is best to iron silk sarees right after you have washed them when it is slightly damp. Turn the silk saree inside out and smooth out the fabric on the ironing board so you do not damage its sheen. Press and hold the iron for a few seconds and lift it up, you can run through the silk but move it in a single direction. Steam ironing is also a good option as there are minimal chances of damaging the fabric.


How to remove stains from a silk saree?

Staining your silk saree is nothing less than a nightmare but how you remove it can make all the difference. Even if you get frustrated with staining your silk saree, handle them gently. Before cleaning it run it under lukewarm water and do a patch test, dab the stained area with a small amount of petrol for a few minutes and wash it off. Use a mild liquid soap solution or baby shampoo if the stain is due to sweat or grease. If it is a food stain use a coat of white toothpaste and wash it off once the paste completely dries. A dilute solution of vinegar and water can work wonders on stains.


Maintaining a silk saree can seem like a lot of work but it is definitely worth it. We hope these tips and hacks helped you. Read our other blogs to know everything about silk sarees. Visit our website which is India’s leading designer saree store and gift yourself elegance and happiness.

The Different Types of Silks
The Different Types of Silks

Silk is a natural fabric that speaks luxury and comfort, loved by people of different cultures and traditions for centuries long. Silk production dates back to the 4th millennium BCE in China and first appeared in the Indus Valley around 2450-2000 BC. Though it is used for various industrial and commercial purposes, majorly silk is used in the textile industry. Today, Asia is the largest producer, as well as consumer of silk in the world and silk sarees, amount to 75% of silk consumption. Silk sarees are the most beloved clothing of women treasured for years. 


Apart from silk being a single fabric, there is a wide range of types of silks, each of them known for its qualities. This blog will explain the types of silks based on silkworms and fabrics. 


Based on silkworms

Mulberry Silk

Mulberry silk is the most common type of silk worldwide, comprising 90% of global silk production. It comes from Bombyx mori larvae which feed on mulberry leaves. Mulberry silk is smooth and very strong and has a natural gloss. It can hold moisture very well. Mulberry silk’s history can be traced back to the Indus Valley Civilisation which was used by the royal family and is still the highest quality of silk available today. In India, mulberry silk is majorly produced by Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir, West Bengal, and Karnataka.

Muga Silk

It is known for its longevity and is passed from one generation to the other. To make a six-yard Muga silk saree more than 1 kg of silk is needed. Muga silk sarees are known for their golden sheen which makes them superior to other silk sarees.


Eri Silk

Eri silk is obtained from Philosamiaricini silkworms found in Northeast India and some parts of China and Japan. Besides Bombyx mori, this is the only silkworm that is fully domesticated.

Eri silk is one of the most sustainable silk fabrics.


Tussar Silk

She then takes the end of the pallu in her left hand and pulls it up over her right shoulder so that it hangs down in front of her chest.

The fabric of a bridal saree is very important because it needs to be easy to manage. The material of the saree should be light, comfortable and easy to handle. The best fabrics for a bride are chiffon, georgette and silk because they are lightweight and can easily drape over the body. These days, there are many fabric options available for the bride’s big day. From silk to cotton to chiffon, there is something for everyone’s budget and needs.

Then you go to various shops to find the saree you want and often end up buying a different one after spending hours.

Online shopping is a boon as it saves you time and energy. Unlike offline shopping, you can easily compare price ranges and find discounts to get the best deal without roaming all day. Online shopping gives you the comfort of buying from your home and getting it delivered as well. Online stores function 24/7 so you can shop at a time convenient to you.

Now, you might wonder if shopping from an online store is safe and is not a scam. For the most part yes it is safe but you can verify it by checking if their URL is secure, searching in google, checking their physical address (not in all cases), calling their customer support, and reading reviews of customers and their privacy, payment, shipping and refund policy.


How to Choose the Best Site

Make sure the website’s URL is secure

A website URL is considered to be secure if it starts with "https" and has a padlock symbol in the browser bar. The padlock symbol indicates that the site is encrypted and all data sent between your computer and the website is protected.

Eg: Check the Tulsi Silks website 

It is important to check the security of a website before you buy anything from it. The first thing you should do when shopping online is to check the URL of the website you are visiting. If it starts with "https://" then you know that your data will be encrypted and therefore safe.


Check if the store has a physical address

Online shopping is the new trend in fashion. With the rise of e-commerce, people are now able to purchase their favourite clothing and accessories without leaving their homes. One of the most popular items for online shopping is sarees.

But how does one know if the store has a physical address?

This article will show you how to find out if a store has a physical address so that you can buy your desired saree from them with confidence.

1) Searching for an address on Google: To find out if an online store has a physical address, search for that store name on Google and then click on “Maps” or “Street View” to see where it is located. If no map or street view pops up, then it means that they do not have a physical address. 

Eg: Check our store address here.

2) Checking for Delivery Information: If you are looking for an easy way to check whether or not the store offers delivery

Shopping for sarees has never been easier. With the help of online saree shopping portals, you can now buy designer sarees online from your home and get them delivered to your doorstep.

Call their customer support

One of the most important aspects of online shopping is customer support. You should be able to call the customer service number and get their queries resolved. If you are new to online shopping, you would want to know if you can return the product if it doesn't suit you or is not as per expectations. You would also want to know about what kind of products can be bought from the store, how much it costs, how long it takes for delivery, etc. The customer service team should be able to answer all these questions and help you make your purchase decision with ease.

As a customer, you would want to contact the company if you have any questions or concerns about your order. It's always a good idea to call customer service before you purchase anything online. This will give you peace of mind and help you avoid any potential disappointment when your purchase arrives.

Tulsi Silks customer support is available anytime to solve your queries.


Reading reviews of customers

When it comes to buying sarees online, one might want to read reviews of customers before making the purchase. There are various reasons for this. One reason could be that you want to know if the saree they are buying will be comfortable or not and if it will fit you well. Another reason could be that you want to know how other customers felt about the quality of the product in terms of its feel, shine, and look.

With so many different types of sarees available for purchase online, one might find it difficult to decide which one to buy since there are so many options available with different features and prices as well. This is where customer reviews come in handy because they provide an honest opinion on what people think about a brand’s products and services.

You can read reviews about the brand to get an idea of what other people think about them. You can also find out if there are any common complaints about their products or if they have any defects that might not be obvious to the naked eye. Reading reviews of customers before buying a saree is a great way to make sure that you are getting your money’s worth.


Social Media Links

Legit online websites always have a social media account at least on any one of the platforms and attach the link at the bottom of the website. Checking the brand’s social media page helps you know about the brand better by looking at the number of followers, interactions in comments or if they have pinned any best reviews by customers or celebrities in the story.

Sending a direct message on social media gives you a quicker response and you can see how they treat customers. To put it in simpler words a brand’s social media is a reflection of its identity and values. Hence, verifying social media links is a good option to check a website’s credibility.

Eg: Tulsi Silks has social links attached to social platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter.


Check their policies and documentation

If you're looking for a designer saree online, then you should check the store's privacy policy, refund policy, shipping policy and terms and conditions. People are quite particular about their privacy. So if an online store has a strict privacy policy that doesn't share your information with third parties or the government, then it is safe to shop there.

Some stores offer cash on delivery while others do not. And some offer free shipping while others charge for it. You should always check the store's terms and conditions before you purchase to know what to expect in case anything goes wrong with your order.

Eg: See Tulsi SIlks privacy policy, shipping policy, and terms and conditions.
