The Kerala sari is worn as a garment that consists of a single piece of cloth unlike the traditional Mundum neriyatum. Otherwise, the Kerala sari closely resembles the mundum neriyathum and is often worn by Malayali women as a quasi mundum neriyathum. The kasavu or the golden border is either pure golden layer, copper coated or artificial. The typical Kerala saree is hand woven and is 100 % unbleached cotton. It is known for its fineness of count in weaving. The traditional design of a Kerala saree had a 1 inch to 6-7 inch pallu while the body remained plain. But now the pallu goes up to one meter and the border and pallu is decorated with variety of designs including that of peacock, flowers, and many more. The Kasavu or the golden border is either pure golden layer, copper coated or artificial.The price of an original Kerala saree is very much based on the quality of this “Kasavu” (Zari) Border and starts from around Rs 1000 and goes up depending on the Zari and designs.
That was all the information that i could gather about Kerala KAsavu for you my dear friends…
I love this saree to no end because of the grace this simple saree bestows to any woman!!!
