Heirloom Table Runner - Kanchi Silk
This table runner is a labor of love! It took a lot of creativity, a lot of time and a lot of effort to create what we think is a masterpiece.
A pure hand woven Kanchi silk saree from ~50 years back, this saree was worn by a young bride on her wedding day. The beauty of the saree remains even though it is now torn in many places and not wearable as a saree anymore. The "pallu" displays a weave and beauty that you cannot find today. We knew we had to preserve the historic beauty somehow. We started by strengthening the fabric by adding a layer to the back. Then we salvaged pieces of the border that were strong and then we put everything together!
