The extremely popular Uppada ‘pattu sarees’ woven with pure silk, gold and silver thread or real zari, are a much-preferred bridal costume. Being light in weight, the decorative floral, peacock or geometrical motifs in the ‘jamdhani’ pattern, with broad horizontal borders and a pallu to match, make the look of the saree so appealing, that it lends grace and elegance to the wearer. No wonder that it is much sought after for lavish wedding functions, as much as for more formal occasions.
A variation to this is the Uppada pure silk saree with a floral design, a golden border, and an attractive pallu, that finds it sought after for parties and functions. The more traditional variety of the Uppada silk saree, with embroidery and zari work, is treasured for more special occasions.
