The Pochampally Silk Cotton Saree is a simple and suave choice for those who like to keep their look smooth. Having its origin rooted in the state of Telengana, these sarees are the best bet for those who crave the minimalist look- simple yet elegant. It is also worn to social events like weddings and festivals these days by the younger crowd, who play it up with complementary accessories.

The material used to make these sarees is silk, cotton and a blend of both silk and cotton. Printed with geometric patterns and designs, they are recognized as luxury sarees in India. The intricate designs and the process of coloring of the warp and weft threads before weaving are two unique features of this saree.

Pochampally, in Telangana, India, is well-known for its Pochampally brand of sarees, the base fabric being cotton, silk or a blend of the two. The exquisite finish of the saree comes through the dyeing and weaving of pre-coloured threads which are dyed according to the Ikat or Ikkat technique.

The special technique of the Pochampally silk weave

The Ikkat technique involves applying bindings which resist dye penetration to the threads in pre-determined patterns and then dyeing the threads. These threads are then woven to produce the desired pattern. When several colours are used, the dyeing process on the threads is repeated for each of the colours chosen. Then the fabric is woven with the multi-coloured threads into the pattern. Within the ikkat style of dyeing are methods of single-ikkat and double-ikkat. Single ikkat has two variants – warp ikkat where the warp threads are dyed after applying resists according to pattern on the warp threads. After that, only, is the weaving done. In the weft ikkat it is the weft threads which are colored by applying resists before the dyeing and then weaving is done. In either case the dyeing is done prior to the weaving so carefully that the pattern emerges as the weave progresses. In the double ikkat method both the warp and weft threads are dyed before weaving. Alternatively, in the tie-dye method it is quite the reverse of the Ikkat style of dyeing. Here the threads are first woven and the resist bindings then applied to the fabric before dyeing it.
