The History of Chanderi Sarees:
The legacy of Chanderi sarees dates back to the Vedic period when the art of weaving gained prominence in the town. Historically, Chanderi was an important trading centre, attracting weavers and artisans from different parts of the country. The patronage of various rulers and dynasties further contributed to the refinement of Chanderi's weaving techniques.
Craftsmanship and Weaving Techniques:
With Charkha Tales, Chanderi sarees are crafted from a blend of silk and cotton, creating a fabric that is known for its sheer texture and lightweight feel. The weaving process involves traditional techniques, such as the supplementary weft technique, which adds an extra weft to create intricate patterns. Zari work, often made with gold or silver threads, is another hallmark of Chanderi sarees, adding a touch of opulence and grandeur.
