The Uppada Jamdani Saree is woven in Uppada in the East Godavari district of Andhra Pradesh. It is known for its light weight and reversible design—after weaving the design appears on both the sides. Finest silk with pure zari is used as the raw material to weave the saree. Designs intermingled with the basic plain ground weave are the outstanding features of these sarees. Jamdani weaving is locally called “ani butta”weaving (“ani” means shed).
