Material- Un-degummed mulberry Silk at wrap and cotton at weft, red silk yarns and golden metalic threads for zari. Un-degummed silk is silk in its natural form.
Craft- Handloom Saree woven at Chanderi
Dry Wash only.
Being handwoven, saree may display slight irregularities in weaves that proves it authenticity.
Silk filament has outer protective layer which is removed by process called degumming to give it soft feel and lusture. In Un-degummed silk this coat is not removed hence its not very shiny or lusturous.
Use of undegummed silk with cotton and light transparent weave is characteristic of original chanderi.
