Kanjivaram or Kanchipuram saree is the type of saree traditionally woven by artisans of Kanchipuram, Tamil Nadu, India. They are marked by their wide border & zari work but you can come across different style & pattern in Evolved Kanjivaram saree.

As per legends in Hindu Mythology, Kanchipuram silk weavers are considered descendents of Sage Markanda, the weaver of Gods who made tissue from the lotus fiber. It is also considered that Silk was favorite of Lord Vishnu.
You can obviously encounter motifs like Suns, moons, chariots, lions, coins, mangoes, peacocks, and parrots, swans, woven into Kanchipuram saree. Apart from them you can also notice a jasmine bud within a square or a round frame which is known as mallinaggu. Another common feature is called Thandavalam pattern where parallel lines run across all over the body of the Sari.
A visit to Kanchipuram city will be worthwhile even  if you travel this much distance just  to grab a few yards of this!
