Balarampuram Saree

Balarampuram Saree

Balarampuram Saree is a famous produce of Balarampuram, a town situated in Thiruvananthapuram District. This is a handloom product woven from un-dyed natural cotton. The typical climate of this region greatly contributes to the softness and durability of the fabric.

Balarampuram Saree is known for its simplicity. It contains patterns of buds made in a geometric fashion. The border is simple and plain, with the same color as that of the patterns. The saree boasts of heavy ‘zari’ embroidery work. Silver wires, coated with gold, are employed for the embroidery.
