Chanderi, is in Ashoknagar district of Madhya Pradesh (MP). It is known for its Chanderi Sarees, which are sheer in quality, fine in texture and are a marvellous work in art and design. A weaving art since royal times, the hand woven Chanderi Saree extracts a lot of patience, dedication and craftsmanship in its making. Today it is also woven on modern looms but the difference in quality is visible.

Enhancing the beauty of the Chanderi saree is the ‘Butti’ or motif, which is an interlaced, hand-woven, shape, consisting of gold, silver or copper coated threads. The Asharfi Butti, or Gold Coin shaped Butti has been a popular choice since earlier times, though the pure gold or silver used in its making has given way to tested Zari, which is woven from synthetic yarn by needles of different sizes. The bigger version of the ‘Butti’ is popularly known as ‘Butta’. A major difference in the making methods is that the ‘Buttis’ of hand-woven Chanderi sarees, retain their shape and appearance throughout the life of the fabric, with no thread coming out from the ‘Butti’ structure. The same cannot be said for the one woven from synthetic yarn, which tends to lose the initial shape and appearance after some time. This, despite the good care, that is expected to be taken, for this delicate fabric in both cases.

Chanderi Sarees can have either silk or cotton as the base fabric. Brilliant floral designs or batik, adorn the cotton version of the saree, while the silk saree has zari brocades with embroidery of different patterns as Zari Zardosi, Ari,Gota,Chikan, to name a few. Buttis once only hand-woven on the fabric, have been replaced by gold-printed ‘Butti’prints on the silk fabric body. The elegance, and the grandeur that the Chanderi Saree lends to the wearer, makes it ideal for special occasions, marriages or social functions. It could also serve as corporate-wear.

Since the inception of the Chanderi fabric and primarily ladies Sarees, the butiis on the Fabric are hand-woven and absolutely woven on Handloom. There is no use of any other process of manufacturing and it is Gold coated, Silver coated and as well as Copper coated. Now a days Tested Zari Butti are also common and in use. The Tested Zari is made with the use of Synthetic yarn. The Buttis are made by use of Needles. Number of Needles used depends upon the number of Buttis and its size. For each Butti/Butta separate Needles are used. All the weavers involved in this process are experts in it since they have been doing this for long. time. The most popular and traditional kind of Butti is Asharfi Butti, which is in shape of Asharfi (woven in pure gold and silver Zari and now a day it is also woven in Tested Zari). This kind of Butti was in use in past only by the Royal families because it is very expensive as genuine Gold and Silver is used. The Butti which is big is size is popularly called as Butta with all other specifications. More so and it is there ancestral business and trade.
