Madhya Pradesh

Located asĀ  a small township of the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh, Chanderi, had unending patronage from the royals and the State even as it carries the past century old weaving profession to the current one.

It was then also famous traditional headgear (Pagri) and drape around (duppatta) for women in fine muslins weaves made from hand spun yarns. These were then decorated with embellishments in zari till late in the nineteenth century. However, economic and natural compulsions forced the scenario to change when mill made yarn was introduced in the last decade of the nineteenth century.

Chanderi handloom cluster gives credence to the fact the Scindia family even today, as well as international and national bodies like UNIDO, EDI and design interventions from NIFT and NID, and of course the local Self Help Groups continue contributing a lot to this regions fame and fortune.

If it's Chanderi, it means nothing but the six or six and a half yards of sheer magic in the finest of silks with blends in cottons that all royals, bollywood film stars and commoners, fall for!

Chanderi fabrics can mainly be classified as pure silk (in warp and weft woven in 13/15 denier), cottons (warp and wefts in 100 and 120s even give the famed Dacca muslins a run for their money!) and silk-cotton (a combination of 13/15-denier warp with 100s/120s cotton in the weft).

Chanderi stands out due to its uniquely patterned figurines and their motif effects produced with the help of additional weft design where earlier zari was used in their gossamer creation. Silk added versatility to its artistry in the 1940s with further introduction of 'fly shuttle' looms, 'jacquard' and 'dobby'.

Today, Chanderi blessed with a mix or traditional and modern techniques and deft skills of weavers honed by institutional supports stands out as a cluster success in every sense. One wonders how the local traditional weavers weave gold in silk and cotton to design kaleidoscopic creations that mostly drape the who's who among royalties and the society elite.

Way back in April 2004, Chanderi sarees were registered under Geographical Indications by the Registrar of Geographical Indications, Chennai under Geographical Indication of Goods (Registration and Protection) Act 1999 through Geographical Indication No. 7; Certificate No. 4.

So go ahead, and drape yourself in a saree having rich gold border and gold bands at the pallavi and some exclusive ones having gold checks with lotus roundels or butis, spread all across the six yards!
