The chanderi silk fabric traces its genesis from centuries ago as a handwoven fabric that was prominently patronized by the royalty of old times. Its name is derived from the ancient town of Chanderi in Madhya Pradesh where the weave was originally honed by the local craftsmen. The fine look of the handspun fabric is defined by its frail weight and sheer glossiness. The ingenious excellence of the weave boasts of a timeless charm even now.
Connoisseurs of today have incorporated the seasonless fabric with painstaking details of zari, block prints, traditional motifs, and handcrafted embellishments to encore its old-world charm in the new-age. Translating its versatility into contemporary pieces that are heirloom-worthy, designers houses like RAR Studio, Torani, Madhurya, Devnaagri amongst others have embraced its antiquated richness into their signature repertoire.
The ubiquitous beauty of a chanderi fabric blends soothingly with earthy hues as well as bright shades. Chanderi is a perfect choice of fabric to customize a bridal ensemble that doesn’t weigh you down. Invest in colourful chanderi dupattas, kurta sets and sarees as timeless pieces that can be adorned with minimal effort and a note-worthy style statement. Choose the handloom hero for a perfect blend of both worlds-classic and present. Believe in its understated lustre and a chanderi sari will easily distinguish you in the crowd for your fine choice amongst the fancy-schmancy chiffons and tulles.
