These handwoven sarees originate from the Jogulamba Gadwal district in Telangana. These exquisite sarees are known for their beautiful mix of fabrics and designs. The entire saree is made of cotton while its borders are designed in silk with beautiful annapakshi, elephant or lotus motifs which are then stitched on to the main saree hence the name kuttu gadwal (literally meaning stitched on). The saree can be in checks or plain but comes with a gorgeously matched contrast border. The ultimate preference for subtle occasions, these sarees are a favourite across cultures.
