Pochampally Sarees are made in Bhoodan Pochampally, Bhuvanagiri District, and Telangana State, India. Sarees are famous for their traditional geometric shape designs. The beautiful geometric design when blended with skilled weavers results in beautiful sarees and dress materials. The artwork on this sarees started in the 18th century and is famous across the world. Bho0dan Pochampally town had around 80 villages and these village people started this artwork with easily available loom. In the later 1970s, few main persons of the village decided to mix cotton and silk together by weaving them together to improve their living conditions.
Ikat literally means ‘tie, bind or wrap around’, derived from Malay Mengikat. In Lao, the word is Mut Mii, in India, Bandha, Kasuri in Japan, and Mudmee in Thailand. The technique results in intricate patterns, which are achieved by resist-tying. The immersion dyeing of the exposed sections of bundles or ‘chains’ of warp and weft yarns prior to weaving. Multiple colours applied in the sequence of re-tying and dyeing from light to dark result in more colourful and detailed patterns. Skilled ikat weavers plan the positioning and registration of the pattern in the cloth in advance.
Pochampally sarees vary in designs and sarees with more motifs and bright colours can be worn for any occasions. With fewer motifs and light coloured ones can be worn as formal party wear. Usually, these sarees are priced from few hundreds to lakh rupees.

Some Precautions to Maintain Pochampally Sarees
- Always keep the sarees in cotton covers, sarees need to get fresh air as often as possible.
- Once in three months dry the sarees in open airy place. Never dry them in the hot sun as they would lose their colour.
- Never fold the saree in the same fold as before, keep changing the folds as they tend to tear over a period.
- Don’t use steel hangers to hang silk sarees, they stain the sarees.
- Don’t store the sarees in a suitcase. Allow some air to pass through and keep them wrapped in a cotton cloth and kept directly on the shelf.
- Naphthalene balls should never be placed directly over the sarees; chemicals in the balls stain them.
- Always dry clean them
- Never store them with other material sarees
- Keep them wrinkle free
- Iron on medium heat and do not spray water while ironing as it may leave a stain.
