Andhra Handlooms are the symbol of harmony and simplicity while still maintaining a dignified existence. Handlooms that include pure handloom cotton and rich lustrous cotton silk pattu sarees, Andhra Handlooms are known for their quiet play in colors, neither dull or pale nor very bright. The Andhra Handloom sarees peak of soft womanly allure and slightly rich feel. No wonder these sarees have got a good response from the market.

What is special about Andhra Handlooms?
Andhra handloom sarees are simple weaves of smooth texture, soft feel, that are in attractive colors, vibrant but not hitting the eye. Good count weaves the lattice is fine for elaborate prints, but the general patterns are simple geometric or light distributed motifs with captivating borders in varied colors. There is nothing highlighted nor attention centric, yet the saree as a whole by virtue of its simple color play and contrast borders , provides elegance and allure to the wearer of the saree.
