Balarampuram Saree of Thiruvananthpuram, Kerala

IMAGE GALLERY KEYWORDS YOUR VIEWS

Balaramapuram is a small town 15 km away from Thiruvanthapuram in Kerala. These traditional products are woven with kora white cotton yarn (grey or unbleached or non-dyed yarn) of finer counts like 80’s, 100’s etc.

The saree’s specialty lies in the preparation of the warp threads which are sized (starched) with the help of a brush.  The threads become almost round in shape after sizing, giving the saree a very clear surface without any superfluous or extra fibres protruding from it.
