Chettinad, or Chettinadu in Tamil Nadu, India has contributed to the Indian cultural scene through its famed Chettinad style of cooking and the unique Chettinad sarees. The distinguishing features of the Chettinad sari are its seemingly heavy look and the striking colours that are achieved through a deft combination of stripes, checks and colour contrasts. The heaviness is attributed to the historical fact that the saree was worn without other accompaniments and in a different way from what is prevalent today. The saree was also said to be of shorter length than the conventional one, exposing the anklet portion of the wearers. The modern Chettinadu cotton sarees still maintain rudiments of the original version, but have been suitably modified to meet current day needs of the saree-wearers. With the base cotton fabric material and the hallmarks of thickness and huge ‘kandanghi’ borders are merged with trendy colourful designs and embroidery to create the elegant 'Chettinad magic'.
The general feature of the Handloom Chettinad cotton sarees has dark backgrounds with plain to lightly adorned motifs. Additionally beautiful naksi borders with floral designs and designer pallu or end piece There is another range of pastels, simple plain and unadorned but with evident self coloured checks weave and a dark contrast border. Current fashion sees geometrical patterns printed on the cotton base and a zari border and colourful pallu, giving that refreshing change for both traditional occasions and formal trendy corporate wear. The silk saree with printed checks, embellished with mirrors and sequins is that eye-catcher to be worn for special occasions, as at parties, high-profile weddings or even at special invitations.
