From the heart of India

Chanderi Silk Sarees belong to the town Chanderi of Ashok Nagar district situated in the heart of the nation, Madhya Pradesh. The town is globally famous for its hand-woven sarees. Since the past centuries, the unique Chanderi Sarees have been the first choice of the royal families.

 

Illustrious past of Chanderi Pattu Sarees

Ancient texts suggest, between the 7th century and the 2nd century BC, Madhya Pradesh was a famous weaving centre in India. While some of the references date back to the Vedic period suggesting the fabric was introduced by Lord Krishna’s evil cousin Shishupal. Between 1740 and 1761, the sarees came to prominence and were exported overseas. Even the Mughals used it for making Khilat, a ceremonial robe given to someone as a mark of Honour. The pure Chanderi Silk Sarees have always been greatly admired for the beauty of its texture and embroidery.
