GADWAL

GADWAL IS A SMALL TOWN IN MEHBOOBNAGAR DISTRICT OF TELENGANA. THE WEAVES OF GADWAL ARE ABOUT 300+ YEARS OLD AND HAVE HISTORICALLY FLOURISHED UNDER THE PATRONAGE OF VARIOUS PRINCELY RULERS OF THE REGION. THE CLASSIC GADWAL SAREE IS A SILK-COTTON SARI. THE BODY OF THE SARI IS WOVEN WITH FINE COTTON & THE BORDER & PALLU ARE MADE USING MULBERRY OR TUSSAR SILK AND EMBELLISHED WITH ZARI. THE MORE CONTEMPORARY GADWALS ARE WOVEN FULLY IN SILK. HOWEVER, WHETHER ITS SILK-COTTON OR PURE SILK, ONE DISTINGUISHING FEATURE OF THE GADWAL SARI IS THE “KUTTU” (MEANING JOINING) AT THE BORDER – SO WHETHER IT COTTON OR SILK, THE GADWAL ALWAYS HAVE A SILK BORDER AND INVARIABLY IN DRAMATIC COLOURS.
