Sushmitham is a classic Gadwal cotton in delicate Lotus White with a silk border of brilliant blue and coffee brown in Ganga-Jamuna style and pure jari.
The border and pallu are in pure silk attached to the separately woven cotton body of the saree using the 'kuttu' technique.
Doesn't come with a blouse.
These sarees, once the hallmark of Gadwal weaving technique, have become a rarity. It took us four trips and a mammoth effort to find them! Weavers tell us that it is hard to find labour for this specific technique.
