The history and fame of Indian hand woven fabrics goes way back and is in fact poetic, with the fabrics being compared by the Mughals to ‘woven air’ or ‘running water’ or the ‘morning dew.’ Andhra Pradesh is a state in India that is renowned for its hand woven weaves. The indigenous weavers from this region are known for their expertise in producing the most exclusive hand woven sarees. Kupadam sarees produced by the weavers of Andhra Pradesh is a Gadwal type saree typically made of fine pure handwoven cotton fabric.
