CHANDERI SAREE: Where Tradition and Modernism co-exist
Posted on July 06 2022
Chanderi fabric has a long trail of history interlacing its existence. The earliest record of its weaving goes back to the 7th century when it was handspun in cotton to make turbans for Maratha rulers. Another story tracebacks the origin story to Lord Krishna's cousin, Shishupal, in the Vedic period, who was believed to have founded the luxe-looking fabric.
Whatever might have been the truth, Chanderi fabrics have been a favourite among the royals for ages due to their lightweight yet lustrous appearance. In the 19th century, hand spun cotton was switched with mill cotton due to easy availability. In the 1910, chanderi fabrics received gold embellishment when the Scindia royal family took it under their patronage. Later this led to the introduction of Japanese silk which had high margins and that is how Chanderi silk was discovered.
