Uppada cotton saris are a namesake of the town where they were first woven, Uppada in the East Godavari district of Andhra Pradesh. Made of pure cotton, they are valued for their lightness and the softness of texture. These saris very nearly went extinct in the 19th century in the wake of the industrial revolution. Because the techniques used in weaving Uppada saris are completely non mechanical, it often takes two weavers working on a single loom two whole months to create a single Uppada cotton sari. Weavers of these saris belong almost exclusively to the Padmasali tribe.

Often a part of an Indian bridal trousseau is a Banarasi sari. Banaras, famous for holy ghats, began weaving silk brocades in the seventeenth century long after the Mughals set foot in India. Craftsmen borrowed ideas from the Mughal period- floral and foliage motifs- to create a unique style of their own. Each saree is a result of hard and patient work and takes from 15 days to 6 months to make. The silk is generally decorated with engravings that tend to add depth to the sari, making it relatively heavy. Each sari is visually a stunning piece of artwork because of its detailed figures and compact weaving. See more at: http://www.indiasarihouse.com/collect…/banarasi-silk-from-up

The Gadwal silk saris, reminiscent of the Hyderabad empire are an epitome of grace. These saris are crafted with delicate skill, and legend has it that they can fit into a mere matchbox with multiple folds. A distinguishing feature of Gadwal silk saris is their contrasting colours of the pallu/ border and the body.
