The eponymous fabric Chanderi has taken its name from chanderi town in Madhya Pradesh. Fabric is a result of traditional methods of hand weaving that have developed over the centuries and passed through generations. As the fabric is woven by three kinds of threads of cotton, silk thread and embellished with woven zari, traditional looms are used as a primary means of production. The chanderi produces three kinds of fabrics: pure silk, chanderi cotton, and silk cotton. These include pit, dobby and jacquard looms. Most chanderis have a rich gold border and two lines of gold on the pallu. The chanderi fabric is light weight and of sheer texture. The transparency is a unique feature, which is not commonly or found in any of the textile products all over the country. The very fine and delicate texture distinguishes itself from other handloom fabrics and stands out as excellence in every sense. With around 3500 looms in working condition,18000 people are directly or indirectly dependent on the industry for the living. All the weavers involved in this process are experts in it since they have been doing this for long time and are well experienced. The yarn used in chanderi fabric is of high quality that even after long use its thread never comes out and its original shape and appearance is retained forever. This quality of Chanderi fabric is in existence since moghul times. It’s the perfect year-round fabric. Sheerness, fineness and glossiness of the fabric fascinates many creative minds of the fashion industry. The fine texture of chanderi fabric needs special care. It is therefore advisable to dry clean only.
