Kanchipuram silk sarees are woven from pure mulberry silk. While the silk belongs to South India, the pure gold and silver zari comes from Gujarat. The silk thread that is used to weave the saree is dipped in rice water and sun-dried before it is used in order to increase both, its thickness and stiffness. The silk thread is then interlocked with a thin silver wire and woven through after which a golden thread is used to complete the procedure. Kanchipuram silk sarees were initially a nine-yard weave but over the years the more practical six-yard weave was included too. The original golden and silver zari is also now replaced by a cost effective metal or copper zari that manages to hold on to the sheen of the texture while reducing the cost. However, if you want an original you need to ensure that the zari work is not artificial.- Kanchipuram Sri Varalakshmi Silk Sarees
