Ayiram Butta – Weaves of Tamil Nadu

    [seyv thuh weev]

    This traditional weave called “ayiram butta” (thousand motifs) has fine checks alternating with mayil (peacock) and rudraksh motifs, which call for intricate weaving skills.

    The cotton sari also known as “kandaangi” is unique in the dramatic and spontaneous use of color and pattern, with bold checks, stripes and contrasting hues. Vibrancy and weight are its distinguishing factors.

    Originating from Tamil Nadu, these saris were traditionally woven in silk, cotton is a recent innovation.

    When human hands and heart work in tandem, that is grace in the making. Handwoven cloth has beauty and grace that is significant.
