Stages Of Pochampally Perfect Saree

by Shatika, January 16, 2016

The saree is created with lot of hard work and we would like to describe how it is done A graph sheet is taken and , a design is created using three or four colors so as to decide the number of picks and ends required for a decided motif and accordingly weft and warp groups of yarns are dyed and this is done by tying them using rubber bands. This can be done a number of times according to the different colors decided in a given design. With vibrant color combinations, spectacular designs are created. Variation can also be brought about by using different thread pitch, counts, etc. Around each motif, a unique color aura can be witnessed and this occurs when there is a difference of even millimetres in design setting while fabric is being hand weaved. A yarn is prepared in three ways like tie and die of warp yarn and whole yarn dying in weft creating a warp ikat, both weft and warp being tied and dyed resulting in double ikat and so on.


It takes about one or two months of weaving eight sarees or about 50 mt fabric on the basis of design intricacy, number of colors used, thread counts used, thread preparation types and seasonal changes.


Fast colors are used in these sarees as many colors tend to lose their dye and get mingled with other colors. This defeats the very purpose and hard work of a weaver. His workmanship and skill goes waste entirely thus care is taken while selecting colors or treating them before use so as to avoid this situation.
