Heirloom Series - Kanchi Silk Maroon Long Kurta
Hand woven Kanchivaram silk sarees originate in a town called Kancheepuram in Tamil Nadu. Home to the weavers whose craft has become world famous, Kancheepuram is also known for its ancient temples.
In South India these silk sarees are considered auspicious and are worn at celebrations. A friend of ours gave us some of her Kanchivaram sarees that she is not wearing anymore. The material was so gorgeous and the weave so brilliant that we decided to come up with a whole line of clothing made with these sarees!
This short black and white kurti is lined with soft cotton material and can be worn over black pants for a formal evening event. This kurti is size medium (US Size 6-8).
