Story of Korvai Kanchivaram
Korvai is a unique and ancient weaving technique where the borders and body are woven separately with separate shuttles simultaneously with two weavers. The korvai weave is in verge of extinction because of the labor and the time taken to complete one saree. Yess !!! when compared to a normal Kanchivaram saree the korvai Kanchivaram take lot of time to complete one saree. And only skilled labor with a good experience in this field only can weave this korvai sarees. These korvai on our authentic Kanchivaram with our traditional gaatharama ( with good weight silk construction ) like our grandmothers Kanchivaram is rare to find nowadays. After 10-20 years even if we pay 50,000 rupees also we cannot able to make these type of authentic korvai Kanchivaram. As because only 60 - 70 + years old people are doing this wonderful. After them no one are ( young generation ) ready to do this job as all went to the IT sectors or moved to other fancy jobs. This is the reality of this Korvai Story.
