Kodali Karuppur Saris of Tamil Nadu

Kodali Karuppur Saris of Tamil Nadu

Languishing Craft

The kodali karrupur sari derives its name from the village of Kodali Karrupur, on the northern bank of the Kollidam river, in Tiruchy district of Tamil Nadu. Till the beginning of the twentieth century, Kodali Karrupur was famous for its karpur saris (as well as dhotis and furnishings); however, by the early years of the twentieth century, lack of patronage and competition with less expensive mill-made saris reduced the craft to virtual extinction.
