How to identify a pure Kanjivaram Silk Saree?
There are many ways to find out the genuineness of a Gold Kanjivaram Saree.
- The border of the sari and its body lies in complete contrast to each other. Keep in mind that there are also cheaper versions of this Gold Silk Saree in the market which make use of artificial zari. To spot a fake zari layout, you have to identify closely.
- One of the most helpful ways to differentiate between a fake and original Gold Zaree Saree is to perform the silk test. Take a few loose threads from the sari and burn them. If ash is formed, smell it. You should get a smell of burning leather or hair. Artificial silk sarees have threads which completely burn away and produce no ash.
- If you want to check the purity of the Gold Zari Saree, look for some loose zari ends. Pure zari is made up of red silk thread which is later dipped in gold to attain shine. If you spot any other colored silk, be certain that the zari is fake.
- Pure Gold Kanjivaram Sarees are also given a silk mark. Check for it to ensure genuineness.
Why is the production of Kanjivaram Sarees decreasing?
The South Indian weaving community that makes these Gold Silk Sarees is fading away slowly. Urbanization leads to traditional craftsmen and women to seek for assembly work. Not only their payment is better, but also production is swift. Along with this, rising gold prices makes it difficult to run the business.
