It is a natural insulator and possesses the unique ability to draw moisture away from your skin. It is a sophisticated masterpiece of technique and skill that has evolved over centuries. Blessed by the unique confluence of history, geography and culture of Kanchipuram, the city of a thousand temples, the master weavers of this land elevated the handwoven silk sari to high art.

To wrap yourself in the luxury of a Kanjivaram is to know that somebody’s complete attention was on that weaving for many days. To experience the magic of a Kanjivaram is to know that you are wearing a sari that is at once smart, stylish, sensual and classic.
