The saree costing a cool Rs. 40,000 has a temple border, meena work, neatly knitted beads and crystals, and ‘butas’ made of sandalwood .
The saree has 300 to 400 butas, both small and big, weighing around 400 grams.
The weavers of Dharmavaram had taken almost three months to bring out this “innovative” saree, which passed through “24 quality parameter checks.
