by Shatika, February 22, 2016

Pochampally is one of the ancient Ikat weaving centres in India, along with Gujarat and neighbouring Odisha. Locally, Pochampally Ikat is known as Pogudubandhu, Chitki and Buddabhashi in Andhra Pradesh where it is produced, in other parts of India it is popularly known as Pochampally, named after one of the village where it is produced. It has its own unique character of design, different from other Ikat producing areas in India. The weaving centres during ancient period was in Chirala and Jentrpeta towns situated between Vijayawada and Chennai but was discontinued for various reasons. Today, most of weaving takes place in Pochampally village where there are over five thousand looms producing this textile.

The weaving survives in a few villages like Pochampally, Koyalgudam, Chowtuppala, Srirpuram, Bhubangiri, Chuigottala and Galteppala and few villages around them mostly in Nalgonda district. Pochampally Ikat uniqueness lies in the transfer of intricate designs to create this masterpiece. The cotton Pochampally was very popular so we have now also added Pochampally silk saree for our saree lovers in India and abroad.
