Origin & History

Before the sarees came into existence, Mangalgiri was always known for its pilgrimage importance because of the famous temple of Lord Panakala Narasimha Swamy that is located in the heart of the town. It is believed that this temple has been there since Satya Yuga and below the present temple lies the erstwhile Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy temple wherein Yudhistira had himself installed the main idol in the temple. However, the present temple was built in 1807-09 by Raja Vasireddi Venkatadri Naidu. It is said that as per the ancient traditions, the pilgrims had to purchase a sari from the local weavers after offering obeisance to the lord, which was another way of giving a livelihood to the local weavers. Thus grew the popularity of the Mangalgiri sari.

During the Qutub Shahi Dynasty in 1593, the region had levied taxes on the handloom sarees. Due to this, most of the weavers fled from the town, which dealt a severe blow to the flourishing handloom industry of the town of Mangalgiri. This development enabled the rulers to adopt a more favourable attitude with the weavers and reduce the taxes. In short, the pillar is proof enough that the Mangalgiri handloom tradition has been a part of the town for more than five centuries.

The eye-catching appeal of the Mangalagiri handloom sarees

Heavy gold thread or zari borders, traditional Nizam designs, and simple mono-striped or multi-colour striped pallus adorn the fabric. Various motifs like leaf, mango, parrot, gold coin, add to the appeal of the cotton saree. Printing work and embroidery designs on the mangalagiri cotton sari make them more elegant. There are some features unique to a Mangalgiri Saree. The soft and comfortable all-season fabric generally does not have designs on the body. It also is known for not having gaps in its weave. There is a missing thread variety of saree not commonly found.

Count is an indication of the fineness of a saree, based on the threads per square inch in warp and weft. Counts range from 40 (coarse) to 120 (super fine), with the normal count of 80 – 80 being used for soft woven fabric.
