The Scindiyas patronized the Chanderi Sarees weaving industry through 1910. It was the era when a golden thread first featured on cotton muslin sarees. Weavers in Madhya Pradesh discovered Japanese silk in the 1930s, soon after which they began replacing the wrap within cotton sarees with Japanese silk, resulting in the emergence of the mesmerizing Chanderi silk.
