Bobbili is a small town in the Vizianagaram district with a weaver's cluster where this famed saree originates from.
The Bobbili sarees were initially woven for the royals and the weavers were supported by the Vizianagaram Kings.
These high count, light, summery beauties are woven by senior weavers. And unfortunately, due to reducing number of weavers from the new generation to carry forward this art form, this weave is on the verge of dying out.
However, this is even more reason to add one to your wardrobe right now. Usually in pleasant pastels, stripes and checks are a commonality of these sarees.
