Kanjivaram silks are a traditional type of saree originating from the town of Kanjivaram, Tamil Nadu. They are well known for their luxurious texture, intricate designs and are usually worn for special occasions such as weddings and festivals.
While Kanjivaram silk sarees are typically woven with glorified big borders, there is a recent trend of weaving them without any borders. The borders in this case are replaced with intricately woven zari motifs and a grand design on the paloo, which is the prominent part of the saree that drapes over the shoulder. These sarees are lighter on average and are woven in exciting color combinations to impart an elaborate and striking look.
Borderless Kanjivarams are perfectly suited for those who want a contemporary look over a traditional one. They can be woven in a single color or with a contrasting paloo, with large body motifs or intricate smaller ones and can be perfectly matched with a striking blouse pattern. They can also be a great choice for brides who want to mix up contemporary and traditional elements for their wedding saree.
