THE GADWAL GLORY

by Shatika, February 18, 2016

The gadwal weavers vouch that their six meters of saree can be folded down to the size of a small match box! Gadwal Sarees have been very popular since the 19th century. Gadwal handlooms are well known for the durability of the colours used in the yarn. Usually Gadwal handlooms are made in cotton and silk. The count used in weaving gives the softness and hardness of the fabric. Count means the number of threads used in the length and breadth for weaving known as warp and weft respectively.

1 (1)Each and every thread of the Gadwal saree is hand woven. Each weaver works from home with all his / her family helping in the  different steps of the process. It requires approximately 4-8 days (depending on the variety of saree) of continuous efforts of two persons for weaving a saree. The core materials used for manufacturing the saree are Silk / Cotton and Zari. The silk border is either Tussar or mulberry and the body is often of unbleached cotton. It may also have coloured cotton or silk checks. Pure silk versions of the Gadwal sarees are also very popular.
