Indigenous to the region of Chanderi in Madhya Pradesh, the fabric is produced
by weaving silk and zari over cotton yarn that lends a shimmering texture to the
loom. Highly patronized by the Bundela Kingdom, the weaving culture dates back
to the 5th and 7th century. Distinguished by their fine zari work and
lightweight textures, Chanderi sarees are made from pure silk or cotton with
animal motifs, geometric designs and floral art woven into them.
