Among the various techniques used in Kanjivaram weaving, korvai, is by far the most distinctive feature and almost synonymous with the saree genre. Korvai technique is most recognizable in a temple saree with small triangle shapes running along the border. Korvai weaving can also produce a straight line. Korvai technique, also called the 3-shuttle technique is a way of creating a marked separation between body and border of a saree on a handloom. 2 shuttles are used for the borders and one shuttle for the body. This technique produces separate jewel-tone colors on the body and borders without any yarn mix (which produces a ‘shot’ color). This technique is also prevalent in other weaving genres of south India. In Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, this technique is called Kuppatam and in North Karnataka, it is called Kondi.
