Discover Kanjeevaram With Mallik Kankatala And Anirudh Kankatala
At first glance, the journey of Kanjeevaram and filter coffee — from seed to loom and seed to cup — may have little or nothing in common, however at a well curated evening by Mr. Mallik Kankatala and Mr. Anirudh Kankatala , DISCOVER KANJEEVARAM, proves that there are many parallel paths.
Originally from Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh, KANKATALA is known for their gold zari brocades and gold tissue sarees woven in pure zari, the designs of kanchipuram sarees are inspired from the temples in Kanchipuram city, which is also called city of 1000 temples. Kanchipurams are known for their korvai borders, which mean the borders and body are woven separately using 3 shuttles and then attached, which give the uniqueness of the color combination to Kanchipurams.
The evening DISCOVER KANJIVARAM hosted by second and third generation legacy Mr. Mallik Kankatala and Mr. Anirudh Kankatala saw some unique perfectly draped authentic hand woven Kanchipurams.Some of the names were Bandhani, Kalamkari, Chikankari, Linen, Kora, Printed and Big Border Kanchipurams.
