Konrad Saree

Konrad Saree

The konrad or the temple saree is also a speciality item from Tamil Nadu. These sarees were original woven for temple deities.

They are wide bordered sarees and are characterised by wedding related motifs such as elephants and peacocks, symbolising water, fertility and fecundity.

Traditional colours for these sarees are earth shades of browns, greys and off-whites. However, brighter shades have been introduced for the North Indian buyer.
