Venkatagiri sarees are generally made of cotton, silk mix, pure silk that are weaved mostly on the traditional pit looms. These sarees are mostly woven with the art of Jamdani weaving followed by about 14 generations. Venkatagiri Saree is a saree style woven in Venkatagiri of Nellore district in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. It was registered as one of the geographical indications from Andhra Pradesh by the Geographical Indications of Goods Act, 1999.
It is famous for handlooms, and its weavers have adopted the fine Jamdhani weaving technique while assimilating traditional designs of the region, such as the artwork in this tapestry that shows the Kalpavriksh tree and the Kamadhenu cow, which is regarded as auspicious and bestowed of prosperity. Borders have plain Zari stripe without additional warp design Small additional weft design in the main section and pallu with zari add beauty to the Venkatagiri saree. Commonly it is light-colored lightweight and soft to touch since very little designing is done and also less starch is put on yarns. The tapestry is woven using very fine cotton yarn and pure gold thread, with both the warp and the weft having the same count of cotton yarn. It takes 3-4 months to weave each product.
