Pochampally Ikat Saris: Named after a small town Pochampally near Hyderabad, AP, the sari has something unique about it. The sections of weft and the warp yarns are tied first and then resist dyed to achieve the pre-fixed design pattern and then interlaced to get the wonderful Pochampally Ikat saris. The technique of ikat weaving, which requires true precision and skill, is believed to be brought in the town of Pochampally from Chirala where it is locally known as chit-ku.
