Upadha Jamdani Saris of Andhra

Sari is an outer garment worn mainly by the Indian women. It is a light weight cloth generally measuring five and half meters in length. One end of the sari is wrapped around the waist giving a skirt look and rest of the cloth is draped over the shoulder. The hanging fabric from the shoulder is called Pallu. Most saris these days are accompanied with matching blouse pieces of similar design and fabric.

Andhra Pradesh bears a long tradition of woven fabrics with a wide range and designs of saris. The saris are mainly of silk and cotton fabric. Mostly these saris carry their name from the origin of its native place. Every sari presents a different and unique look of weaving style. Uppada, is a beach town of Andhra Pradesh located almost 20kms from Kakinada. This town is famous for its beautifully designed cotton saris which are exquisitely designed by the local artists of Kakinada. These cotton saris are available in all the possible ranges with beautiful colors and motifs depicted on the border and pallu of the sari. The designing is done with single or multicoloured threads. Also available are the silk saris. These saris bare fast colors and last long when handled with care.
