Ilkal Saree

Traditionally produced on pit looms in a small town called Ilkal, a part of north Karnataka, the saree is known for its luxurious appearance, a natural deep luster attributed to pit loom weaving with red or maroon borders.

 

The significant distinction of Ilkal saree is the “Pallu” which is weaved separately and attached to the body warp by interlocking series of loops, locally called as Tope Teni technique which also increases the Saree length to 7 or 8 Meters.

Ilkal sarees are more durable and comfortable as compared to other types of sarees because of the fine quality yarns used, with the best tensile strength to withstand the traditional handloom weaving technique.
