Sungudi sarees, also known as Chettinadu sarees, are a traditional handwoven textile art form that originates from the Chettinad region in Tamil Nadu, India. These sarees are known for their distinctive and intricate designs, often featuring small dots or circles arranged in various patterns. The name “sungudi” is derived from the Tamil words “sungu,” meaning circle, and “di,” meaning to tie, referring to the tie-and-dye technique used in creating these sarees.
The process of making sungudi sarees involves tying small portions of the fabric with thread to create resist patterns. The tied areas are then dyed in vibrant colors, and after dyeing, the threads are untied to reveal the white or undyed portions.
These sarees are not just clothing items; they carry cultural significance and are often worn during festive occasions, weddings, and other traditional events. The art of making sungudi sarees is a labor-intensive process that involves skilled craftsmanship, and these sarees are considered a cherished part of Indian textile heritage.
