Madhavaram Cotton Saree
In 1003, Madhavaram catapulted to fame when the story of the Ramayana woven using 15 tolas of silver and three tolas of gold threads on a saree reached the royal courts of Mysore, Pithapuram and Venkatagiri. Official records of the 1870s too have mentioned the ‘superior kind of silk and lace bordered clothes’ of Madhavaram. But, it is the Ramayana saree that exemplified the skill of weavers of this tiny village nestled between the River Penna and the hills of Kadapa.
