Arani Silk Saree

Arani silk saree is a traditional Indian saree that is handwoven with the finest quality silk. It is named after the town of Arani, located in the Tiruvannamalai district of Tamil Nadu, India. Arani silk sarees are known for their unique designs, vibrant colours, and exquisite craftsmanship.

What makes Arani silk sarees special is the use of pure silk yarns, which are carefully dyed and woven into intricate patterns.

The sarees are often embellished with zari work, which is a type of thread made of gold or silver that adds a touch of elegance to the saree.
