Chanderi sarees are saris from Madhya Pradesh, India, that are exquisite and opulent in appearance. They get their name from the town where they're traditionally made. This is a weaving town (i.e., one where weaving is the major occupation of a significant portion of the inhabitants) that has long produced beautiful and distinctive woven textiles. Though the Chanderi fabric is used to make a variety of garments, the Chanderi sari is a particularly popular item that is in high demand throughout India and the world. It's noted for its delicate appearance and fine, light weight feel.
