A&C #2.Chettinad Sarees from Karaikudi.

A trademark Chettinad saree is hand-woven in cotton, has a big border and usually comes in checks or stripes.

Traditionally the Chettinad weavers used vegetable dyes in black, red & yellow. Nowadays you get a wide variety of colours.

I just love the Chettinad saree, very traditional and great for the Indian summer.
