Gadwal Saris of Andhra

Gadwal in Andhra Pradesh is known for weaving saris in cotton weft, with richly brocaded gold borders and pallus with elaborate designs. These saris were originally woven for the royalty and the nobility. The borders and body of the sari are traditionally in dramatic colours. Now Gadwal is changing with the times and saris in silk and tassar are also being woven here.
