Chanderi sarees originally were meant for royals, so were made of silks only. These sarees are sheer in nature hence royal looking. Given the sheer nature they are also breathable, lite weight and naturally comforting. 

However styling them is a little tricky as they tend to be a little stiff, but with wearing it becomes soft and dreamy! 

The traditional designs feature nature identical motifs and border that are classic and evergreen. Currently, Chanderis are woven into kinds, Katan silks that is sheer and gauzy and Pattu silks that are soft silks. 

Both are lite weight and extremely gorgeous.
