Size Guide

This beautiful chuvappu ~meaning red in malayalam~ checkered saree with a green border has been woven using a special double weft technique. The special technique is to contain the checks within the body itself and leave the border plain. A complex skill requiring much deftness of hand, this has been woven by a young woman in Kannur, Kerala. Of special note is the pallu which has motifs that are hand-threaded on the loom itself.
