Chanderi – Pondicherry Travels
Chanderi is a town of the Gwalior kings in the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh. It is a weaver’s town and famous for its Chanderi fabric, which has derived its name from this town itself.
Chandaries – “A mixed fabric with silk as warps and cotton as weft, woven in multi weft technique”
Keeping with the chanderi style, this piece is inspired by a trip to Pondicherry, a French colonial settlement in India until 1954. It is famous for the French and Franco – Tamil architecture. The streets of Pondicherry has Villas with big compound walls and stately doors, the colours used for structures are primarily sun burnt yellow, peach or white. The influence of the French culture can be seen in the long and huge windows with iron bars and ornate balconies and tall columns and lamps across the streets. And of course the original french road names!
