The crafting story
Silk cotton sarees, as the name denotes, are an artistic blend of silk and cotton. With a harmonious confluence of lush silk threads and light cotton threads, our master artisans artistically bring a silk cotton saree to life, yard by yard.
Woven on traditional looms, silk cotton sarees are crafted by placing silk threads on warp and cotton threads on weft, or vice versa. The threads are Intricately intertwined to give a subtle glow and a light porous texture.
Most regional heartlands of India have their own unique version of silk cotton sarees. While weavers in Tamilnadu specialise in handloom silk cotton sarees, the wonderfully elegant maheswari silk cotton sarees from Madhya Pradesh and pochampally silk cotton sarees from Telangana are also a big hit among the saree connoisseurs of Tamilnadu.
Cotton silk sarees are another variation of SICO sarees, Here the body is crafted in pure cotton and the border is woven in pure silk.
Silk cottons emulate the lustrous beauty of pure silk sarees with their vivid colour combinations, artistic motifs, and neat zari work. As they are delightfully light and exude sophistication, they are starting to rule the roost as a preferred workwear choice. They are also ideal for parties and formal events.
