Dark Violet Cotton-Silk Ilkal Saree with Gayatri Border
Handloom weaving in Karnataka's small town of Ilkal dates back to the 8th century. Ilkal sarees are distinguished by their borders, patterns and weaving techniques, unique to the cluster. This remarkable handwoven piece with a cotton body and silk pallav truly stands out with its beautiful interplay between complementing hues and its contemporary appeal. The tope teni motifs in different colours on the pallav are a distinct representation of traditional ilkal weave and reflect the weaver's creativity and skill. It comes with fabric for the blouse.Dimensions
