Mangalagiri Sico Saree
Mangalagiri sarees are recognized by their distinctive play of Nizam patterns and sparkling zari borders. These silk-cotton sarees come with a rich look, offered at low prices which embody vibrant expressions of beauty and are woven in different warp and weft colours, so that when light falls on them, they shimmer with a magical, double-tone hue.
With micro checks or stripes between the Nizam borders, the fabric of traditional sarees flow into pallu, often a quiet mono- striped affair adorned with zari in a typical tribal style. Moving with the times, today, the soft and airy fabrics of Mangalagiri are redefining the world of ethnic fashion, growing beyond sarees to include tunics, blouses, scarves, stoles and even Sling bags.
Mangalagiri sarees are woven in pit looms with finer counts of 80 s Cotton yarn. The process begins with removing impurities from the yarn, dyeing, drying and spinning on traditional charkhas. Cotton strands are reeled into spools and then loaded into spindles to be inserted into the fly-shuttle for processing the weft. During the process of warping, the yarn is checked for tangles, breaks are knotted and the thread is sprayed with starch at least 10-12 times to lend strength, durability and sheen to the fabric. The entire process is carried out in the morning to retain the colour. The final step in the journey ends with the weaver interlacing threads of contrasting hues to weave yards and yards of the fabric.
