THE STORY
At a time when the Maratha queens of Tanjore walked the corridors of their magnificent palace, when the royals were patrons of arts and when skilled artisans created things of unmatched beauty, the Kodali Karuppur saree was the epitome of craftsmanship. A celebrated weave made exclusively for the royals, the saree faded from the mainstream as its royal patronage dwindled.

This rare weave has been brought back to life through a revival project at the Kalakshetra Foundation in Chennai. The motifs that once adorned the heritage weave have now been hand block-printed using vegetable dyes on Chanderi, Maheshwari and cotton sarees.

The result is a collection that retains the storied heritage of the Kodali Karuppur through the motifs, but is far more contemporary because of accessible materials and the ever evolving block print. This translation means that a legacy that had faded away not only gets revived, it also becomes easier for you and me to own and wear.

The Kalakshetra Foundation, an arts and culture academy based in Chennai, is one of the most important social institutions in India. Founded by the legendary dancer, choreographer and theosophist Rukmini Devi Arundale in 1936, the foundation is dedicated to preserving India’s rich arts and crafts, music and dance forms.
