THE STORY
Weavers sitting on their looms create not just sarees and shawls but garments that were once identifiers of a community or a person belonging to a certain region. Look out for the cotton sarees in this collection that carry an example of one such element – the anchu mallupu – an extra weft insertion into the border that gives it an embossed texture. This subtle detail at one time identified a person as being from the Krishna district in Andhra Pradesh, where the sarees in this array were woven. Made using a second shuttle where the extra yarn is confined to the border and does not travel to the body of the weave, the anchu mallupu is one more hidden gem from India’s varied repository of textile techniques.
