Chettinad Cotton Sarees


India is a land full of gorgeous textiles, beautiful embroidery styles and stunning traditional embellishments. Every region has a unique type of handicraft and sometimes may even have multiple handicrafts for which it is known. Earlier, the reach of such traditional handicrafts was often restricted to people living in and around that region but today the situation is very different. Many regional clothes have broken out of their geographical restrictions and have become popular and much loved in India and around the world.

This is especially the case with textile rich south Indian states, where almost every village is known for its unique and eye-catching weaves and designs. Garments like the Chettinad saree may not have received the universal fame of other mainstream sarees but they certainly deserve all the accolades they can get.

The distinguishing features of the traditional Chettinad saree are its seemingly heavy look and the striking colours that are achieved through a deft combination of stripes, checks and colour contrasts. The heaviness is attributed to the historical fact that the saree was worn without other accompaniments and in a different way from what is prevalent today. Interestingly the saree was also said to be of shorter length than the conventional one, exposing the anklet portion of the wearers.

Chettinad, in the Sivaganga district of Tamil Nadu, India, which had once had a sizeable population but since reduced to very few villages was once the home of the illustrious Nattukottai Chettiars, a very prosperous banking and business community.
