Fashion & Cosmetics
With their immense beauty and specialized works, today, Narayanpet fabrics are branding their uniqueness.

Andhra Pradesh is renowned for its handloom fabrics. The most unique, delicate and distinctive designs on fabrics are made exclusively at Narayanpet located in AP.

Narayanpet, a small town lies on the border between Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh. It is an ancient institution of hand-woven products like sarees, salwar suits, etc and is specialized in ethnic handloom cotton and silk manufacturing. They got popularity by the fact that amongst all the Silk garments, these are the only ones which are most easily affordable.

Narayanpet is well-known for its traditional handlooms. These are famous for their beautiful printed works, embroidery styles and especially, contrast borders. Because of smoothness, airy, light in weight, signature and zari border designs, these are often having huge requests from all around the country.

The unique thing about Narayanpet handlooms is that they are not only favoured in Andhra Pradesh but also in Maharashtra.

The whole beauty of Narayanpet handlooms is lies in its ancient history. Originally, these are the traditional handlooms with Marathi influence.

From the evidence of historical records it was stated that, the King of Maratha, ‘Chathrapati Shivaji’ made a campaign to Narayanpet region and found few weavers weaving a distinct style on fabrics. The fact is that they are actually the Marathi weavers, who were migrated to Narayanpet under the courtesy. That’s why, a lot of Maharashtrian influence is observed in Narayanpet handlooms.

Later, the production was increased tremendously to its peak under the patronage of Lokapalli Samsthanam. Today, we are getting a huge number of varieties from the weavers of Narayanpet handlooms.

A distinct style is followed by the weavers of Narayanpet, where the fabrics have checked surface designs, intricate ethnic designs and contrasted look with small zari designs.

The weaving is a unique and exclusive process, where the loom has the capacity of producing 8 sarees at a time.

Basically, silk, cotton or combination is used as the base fabrics. Natural or vegetable dyes are used to produce different hues. After the degumming, dyeing and drying, the actual weaving process starts.

The weaving process starts with dyeing the silk yarn, where the yarn is dipped boiled colour water according to the required temperature. It is important to make sure that the colour must spread uniformly throughout the yarn; it must not affect the quality of yarn. The hues are applied either according to the specifications of designers or as per the requirements.

Then, the silk yarn is dried in shade and later converted into threads by warping and wafting. The design patterns are first drawn on the computer, then punched into a card and loaded in a loom named ‘Jacard’.

Silk saree takes at least 4-5 working days to complete where in case of cotton, one day is quite enough to complete.

Narayanpet salwar suits are the all time wears of women irrespective of the seasons, regions and age groups. Narayanpet Sarees of contrast borders and zari designs are best suitable for functions and other grand occasions. Designer Narayanpet sarees with heavy embroidery designs are apt for wedding ceremonies.
