Gadwal sarees are the famous sarees of Andhra Pradesh made in a style influenced by the Banarasi weaves. The Gadwal sarees with lavish design in pallu make them beautiful and rich looking sarees befitting for any festive celebration.
Fabric in Gadwal Saree
Gadwal saree is made in cotton. While the ground of the saree is cotton, there is a loosely attached silk border.
Traditional colours for these sarees are earth shades of browns, greys and off-whites. However, brighter shades have been introduced for the North Indian buyer.
The most distinctive aspect of the Gadwal saree (and the one most difficult to do) is where the silk pallu is joined to the cotton body - this is called 'doing the kechchu' - back-breaking work that involves long hours of work and is invariably done by women.
