More about this award winning silk saree:
At Pothys values of nationalism and patriotism are greatly admired, since we are truly a company that has been nurtured by India and its citizens. Indias glorious history, varied culture and diversity and the intrinsic unity that hold us citizens together has always been an issue of global fascination. This beautiful nature of Mother India has been captured in writing, music and on canvas, but never on a silk saree. In our quest to pay tribute to Mother India and also to do it uniquely we came up with the concept of re-creating Indias glorious history and achievements, beginning from the ancient Mohanjo-Daro civilization up to Indias freedom from British bondage.
This mammoth silk saree measures a whopping 1276 feet in length, it took a total of eight pain staking months to create this masterpiece in pure Kancheepuram silk. The saree was woven by three Master Weavers, six weavers and nine painters, all belonging to the POTHYS family. This unique creation, which is a result of original concept and design, painstaking hard work, is indeed a remarkable milestone in the annals of our Nations proud handloom industry.
