Rooting from the Vedic period, Chanderi is believed to have been founded by Lord Krishna's cousin, Shishupal. It is one of the finest handloom clusters, for its fine cotton and silk texture embellished with zari. Patronized by royalty, Chanderis are known for their sheer texture, light weight and a golden haze that sets them apart. In India, an estimated 18,000 craftsmen are directly or indirectly dependent on this industry for their living. India's rich textile treasure of Chanderi is exhibited in these sarees by Indian Artizans. Crafted by the nimble fingers of Indian artisans, these sarees are inspired by the grandeur of Indian royalty. The motifs on these sarees were seen on Mughal forts, palaces, and other architecture. The traditional chanderi is given a contemporary touch through the use of a vibrant colour palette.
