Chettinad Cotton Sarees

The cotton sari also known as "kandaangi", is unique in the dramatic and spontaneous use of colour and pattern with bold checks, stripes and contrasting hues.Its vibrance and weight are its distinguishing factors. Records and old photographs show the use of sari by early generations, before the advent of blouses and underskirts, which is worn rather differently from the regular sari. At present, it is available in Karaikudi.
