The sari that gives the royal look and rich feel, the Kanjivaram sari, got its name from a small temple town Kanchipuram where it originated. Kanjivaram saris are noted for their special weaving technique where three single silk threads are used along with the single zari thread. Weaved out of heavy Kanjeevaram silk variety, these saris are known for their luxuriously woven end-pieces using thick zari threads. The Kanjivaram silk saris are woven from pure mulberry silk. They are of enviable texture, lustre and durability and finish.
