Chanderi, best-known handloom textile in India, made with mix of silk and cotton are known for their sheer texture, light weight and a glossy transparency that sets them apart from other textiles.

One of the unique collections of textile from Madhya Pradesh is Maheshwari. Maheshwari fabric which conjures up a picture of royal elegance, majestic in its designs, woven from silk and cotton fibres and embellished with gold zari in stripes and checks having a dual tone check, block, bagh print bearing tribal motifs are exceptional works.

Another famous textile from Andhra Pradesh is Ikat providing one of the richest handcrafted textiles in variety of fibres, cottons, silks and wool. One of the striking aspect of Ikat fabric is widespread existence of coarse count cotton, relatively weighty in stripes and checks.
