History of kuthampully Products
Kuthampully is a traditional cotton weaver's village located on the banks of the river Bharathapuzha in the Thrissur district of Kerala, India. Since over 500 years Kuthampully is the place of looms of traditional weaving.
The Kuthampully saree is distinguished from other sarees by its border. The tradition of Kuthampully handloom was started many years ago by a few weavers (Devengas) from Mysore who were asked to weave dresses for the Maharaja of Cochin. These weavers were the Devengas who are typically the South Indian weaver community. The Devengas are a large unit of weavers who are governed by caste rules. It is said that the Maharaja of Cochin appreciated the weaves made by the Devengas community so much that the community and its predecessors decided to settle in the Kuthampully and transformed the entire village to a weaving village.
Back then, 500-600 years ago nobody was familiar with the name Kuthampully village. But now a huge transformation has occurred and people all over the world know what Kuthampully sarees are. It is beautiful to see the faith, hard work and determination of the weaving community.
