These exquisite, stylish hand-woven sarees from Madhya Pradesh are trendy among upper-class and lower-class ladies (because they are authentic and reasonable for all).

Well, they are enticing because of their lightweight, glossy texture and rich, sophisticated feel. There are a lot of varieties available in chanderi fabric, including scarves, kurtis, lehengas, and suits. Still, Chanderi silk saree has made a reputation for themselves worldwide (because Indian tradition can never go out of style).


What Chanderi actually is?

Colors, shine, and designs are what give a traditional Chanderi its timeless charm. 

Want to know the history behind this beautiful fabric?

I'm sure most must be aware that Chanderi fabric got its name from the hamlet of Chanderi in Madhya Pradesh. The beautiful city is the place where the weavers' colony of this beautiful original and authentic fabric is located. The artisans with more than years of experience make every chanderi fabric ready completely by hand-weaving finely textured cotton rich, lustrous silk threads, which give the fabric its signature sheen. 

Originally or traditionally, this fabric is frequently adorned with zardozi work. But lately, even more, opulent embellishments such as beads, stones, and other materials are available in the market.

Let's Take a Look Back in the History of Chanderi Saree

Chanderi, a hamlet in Madhya Pradesh, has long been noted for weaving world-class Chanderi for centuries. The artisans create the top Chanderi with handspun cotton warps and wefts. With the arrival of mill-made yarn in the 1890s, the fabric began to develop. 

But do you know who actually founded Chanderi?

Lord Krishna's cousin Shishupal during the Vedic period, founded Chanderi. So, practically he is the first initiator of Chanderi fabric.

 The royal family of Scindia patronized Chanderi sarees in 1910, and they have remained the royal family's preferred saree ever since. To make Chanderi a worldwide sensation, weavers in Madhya Pradesh found Japanese silk in the 1930s and began using it instead of cotton warps. Chanderi Silk was born as a result of this.

Availabilities of Chanderi in the Market

There are three main types of Chanderi sarees in India: silk and cotton silk. I'm pretty sure you all must be aware of the types.

Cotton and silk were traditionally woven together in a complex and elaborate weaving method to create a light, attractive fabric that blended the best of both raw materials. But in the modern age, women prefer wearing a Chanderi saree made of silk. 

The Chanderi fabric has been carried down for centuries and has maintained its ageless beauty. Sarees made of pure Chanderi silk are noted for their lustrous shine and elegant design. And this is what makes me crazy for Chanderi silk sarees.

Amazing FACT: Chanderi silk saree is also known as WOVEN AIR due to their gauzy, sheer appearance and transparency,

Do you know the designs on chanderi have changed a lot over the years? Nowadays, there are a lot of hand-block printed designs available in the market. In fact, you can get your own design hand-block printed at your own convenience.  

Earlier, it was limited to florals, peacocks, animals, and coins, but it was still a lot of fun.
