What is the speciality about korvai silk cotton sarees?
There are two types of korvai silk cottons.
One is where the body is woven with warp and weft in silk and cotton and the zari in cotton.
The another type is where the body is woven with warp and weft in silk and cotton and the zari in pure silk. 
What is Korvai?
Korvai is used to interlace the borders with the body of the sari. The contrasting colours of the borders in the weaving of the weft are interlinked with the body of the weft with each throw of the shuttle. Two weavers are required, one to operate the threads for the central portion and another to operate the border colours. The elaborate pallus are also linked to the main body of the sari using a special interlinking weave known as ‘pitni.’ In the hands of the skilled craftsman, this pitni looks like one continuous weave. 
About the special weave:
The Korvai-weaving technique is a timeless classic, passed on from one generation of weavers to another. In the wake of the power loom revolution, this technique seemed to be replaced by easier and cheaper substitutes. Today, however, there is a gradual revival of this art and it is considered a treasure
Description of the saree:
This silk cotton saree is purely hand woven. The body of the saree is silk cotton and the zari of the saree is pure silk. The speciality of this Korvai silk cotton saree is unlike other silk cottons, the zari is woven with pure zari.
