Pochampally is the most typical weaving village in Nalgonda District, Andhra Pradesh, India. This place is popularly known as Silk City of India. Pochampally is the place where threads and colours find their way into the hands of skilful weavers and meander into the market as beautiful sarees and dress material. Basking under the glory on par with the weaves of other places (Such as Kanchi, Dharmavaram, Gadwal, Venkatagiri etc.), Pochampally weave is popularly known as 'Ikkat' or 'Tie-and-Dye weave'. The uniqueness lies in the transfer of design and colouring onto warp and weft threads first and then weaves them together. The fabric is cotton, silk and sico - a mix of silk and cotton. The colours themselves are from natural sources and their blends. Pochampally has traditional looms, whose design is more than a century-old. Today this Silk City is home to more than 10000 weaving families in 100 villages. (Source: Wikipedia)
