The Rasipuram Silk Saree, is a fine traditional weave known for its long-lasting colours and durability. A light fabric with tremendous appeal, this traditional weave from Rasipuram town, Tamil Nadu, is known for its fast colours, durability and comparatively light weight. Motifs inspired by traditional architecture, geometrical patterns and nature adorn the fabric. Fancy designs and beautiful embroidery work further enhance the appeal. The count of a fabric or the number of threads in a square inch of warp and weft determines the fineness - more the threads, finer the Saree. 5600 threads are used in the warp. The width of the saree comes to 51 inches.
The lustrous Rasipuram silk saris are pattu sarees in bright shades and earthy hues. Having wide borders accompanied by thin zari borders, designer pallus with attractive floral bootis, the Rasipuram silk sarees come in bright vibrant colours and subdued earthy hues. Sometimes with dual colour threads used the Rasipuram Silk saris have a shimmering effect. These grand regal offerings make them suitable for weddings, grand parties, festivals, traditional social gatherings and functions.
