A man weaving a silk sari. This cottage industry is still thriving. I was told it takes at least 15 days to weave a silk sari. All Kanchipuram silk sarees are hand woven and the price ofcourse varies according to the zari work and the weight of the silk.

Will be brief now
I went to Kanchipuram in search for silk threads. This is the place where the famous Kanchipuram silk sarees come from. A pity I didn't have enough time to walk around, which I would have loved to do, as I was due to fly back that day. So the pictures I got were not very good. Anyway I don't want to bore you too much. You can read about the place in the link I have given you. A typical house in the town. I noticed most of them had this tiny verandha with 2 wooden pillers in the front.
