Kasaragod Sarees

Having a tradition dating back ages, Kerala handloom products have roots in specific regions in the state. Each centre of weaving has its signature characteristics that leave a stamp of uniqueness. One among the handloom hubs in Kerala is at Kasaragod. Some of the most alluring set sarees in the country are produced in this northernmost district of Kerala.

Known for its unshrinking texture and fast colours, the Kasaragod handloom has so conquered the imagination of women that is impossible to gauge how far and wide its cotton and silk sarees have reached in the world. Making use of only traditional colours, this eco-friendly product is best known for its designer borders with Kasavu [zari]. That it continues to maintain high quality is a testament to the intimate knowledge and skill that go into its manufacture. 

A high standard of making is followed at each and every part of the process – be it the choice of threads, the selection of colours, the creation of designs or the final step of weaving. Having received the “Geographical Indication Tag,” the products exhibit international standards of quality.

The traditional technique used in sizing the warp on the loom is the peculiarity of its making. They are known for their exquisite design, quality, colour pattern and borders. It is made of high-quality finer-count cotton yarn in its original cotton colour as well as fancy-dyed yarn for both warp and weft.
