Gadwal Sarees originate from the town of Gadwal located in Andhra Pradesh. The sarees are designed based on the architecture and temples of the region. The elegant and gorgeous mixture of design and fabric make these sarees stand out in comparison with others.
The saree uses cotton as a raw material and the borders are made of silk designs. The borders are made attractive and employ exotic shapes which add to the beauty of the saree. The sarees which are woven by hand were highly popular right from its inception. The mixture of cotton drape and silk borders is done in such style that it suits you for any event and occasion. The designs are normally woven in colors that contrast each other.
The borders of the saree are available in large, medium and small borders. If the borders are made of golden zari, the attractiveness of the saree reaches another level altogether.
