Pochampally - a weaving village in Telangana, India is synonymous with silk and silk cotton sarees in traditional geometric patterns woven in Ikkat style. It's distinctiveness lies in the transfer of intricate designs and colours onto warp and weft threads first and then weave them together. Bold choice of colours is one of the unique feature in the Pochampally Ikkat weaving process.
These are purely handwoven sarees where the weaving process is very complicated thereby requires skilled weavers to produce detailed ikkat pattern. These sarees are lighweight and easy to carry. Rich pattern and colour combinations make them a preferred choice for party, religious festivals and family events.
