Heirloom Series - Maroon Kanchi Silk Kurti
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.
The gold weave at the sleeves stands out against the dark maroon while the little gold buttas all over add a quiet, classy sparkle to the kurti making it an elegant choice for a formal event.
This kurta is size medium (US Size 6-8).
