This tale of these sarees is as intriguing and fascinating as the sarees themselves. Earlier called Kodali Karuppar, these drapes were made exclusively for the royal women of Maratha Kingdom. When the patronage for the weavers started to diminish gradually, the sarees too went into oblivion. Later on, the sarees were revived by the legendary artist Rukmini Devi at Kalakshetra Foundation and hence, the name. The gorgeous drape got its makeover in a revival project. While these sarees still bring the wave of regal nostalgia, it is the contemporary design, which makes them a real hit among the ladies of all age-group.
It is the motifs that make these sarees unique and standout in the crowd. The motifs are first drawn on the paper and then carved on the fabric using warp and weft technique, quite similar to ikkat sarees. It takes a weaver from 3 to 4 days to craft the motifs on fabric while to get the color right can sometimes even take a day or two.
