The origin of Chanderi fabric 

Chanderi as a fabric has a rich history dating back to the Vedic period! It takes its name from the town of Chanderi where the art has been practised for centuries. Historically, the town situated in Madhya Pradesh was an important centre for trade and commerce attracting merchants from different parts of the world. The ancient trade routes largely contributed to the spread of this fabric and of the special  Chanderi saree weave. 


During the 13th century, the Chanderi fabric gained immense popularity amongst the royalty and the nobility who also played a large role in promoting this weaving tradition. The Mughals especially highly favoured the  Chanderi saree, the influence now evident in the intricate designs and motifs. Over the years, weavers of the town have made remarkable efforts to preserve the age-techniques and patterns, passing down the traditional craft through generations. Today, even the neighbouring villages continue to hone this craft by weaving  Chanderi Sarees and upholding the legacy of this ancient art form. All thanks to skilled artisans, the fabric has earned a special place in the world of fashion - cherished for their exquisite craftsmanship, fine fabric and timeless appeal. A symbol of cultural  heritage, the Chanderi fabric is celebrated as a significant contribution to India’s rich textile traditions.
