Silk scarf with 'corvai' temple border

When it comes to hand weaving, the hobby craft weavers have one question in Chennai: ‘Can I weave silk?’. Next question: ‘Can I weave traditional kanchipuram border’?’

 

So, we decided to live upto it and show that you can weave traditional kanchipuram temple border in the humble Rigid heddle loom itself and that too without much of trouble!

The result is very good! The Shuttles & Needles Slub Silk yarn gives a beautiful texture and softness to the hand woven scarf and the best part is the scarf weighs just about 90 g! Cool stuff that!
