Red Korvai Kanjivaram Silk Saree with Green Border

What is Korvai? 

The Tamil word ‘Korvai’ means ‘In Sync’. As simple as it sounds, this ancient method is the true symbol of the Kanjivaram silk saree and Yes, at Singhania’s we are very proud of our Korvai collection

In weaving a Korvai saree the weaver is manually attaching the body part of the saree with the borders. This saree is again attached to the pallu portion. The Korvai saree is where the contrast coloured weft of the borders interlink with that of the body. Two weavers sit opposite each other to weave the Korvai saree. This interlocking method requires a three shuttle loom and thus becomes the hallmark of the Kanjivaram weave. 

Why Korvai Bridal Kanjivaram? 

The Korvai Kanjivaram Silk Saree embodies years and years of tradition. In its folds, we find the true essence of the Kanjivaram Silk Saree. The elaborate pallu, the timeless borders and the traditional colours are all a testament to the vintage charm of the Korvai Kanjivaram Silk Saree.

How do you find the authenticity of Korvai?
