The Chanderi sari tradition began in the 13th century.

Chanderi saris are produced from three kinds of fabric: pure silk, Chanderi cotton and silk cotton.Traditional coin, floral art, peacocks and geometric designs are woven into different Chanderi patterns.

Though historical records show that Chanderi weaves have been around since the 11th century, references in Indian mythology to the Vedic period suggest that the Chanderi fabric was introduced by Lord Krishna’s cousin Shishupal.

Chanderi sarees are referred to as ‘woven air’ because of their transparency and the sheer texture of the fabric.
