Pavithra was inspired by the woven chequered cotton koora podavai and came up with this design. We had an extremely talented ikat weaver we used to work with and when he passed away suddenly, his son said that he would like to continue the association and wanted us to give him a design to work on. This is the result of his work. The saree is a double ikat as the yarn in the warp and weft is tied and dyed. The entire body checks are created in ikat and the pallu has the most intricate fine ikat weaving one will ever see. The saree has been woven in pure silk .
