We are two mature Australians who would dearly love to have some Kanchipuram silk made into shirts and blouses whilst we are travelling through Tamil Nadu. Are there any people/businesses in Kanchipuram that could do this for us? Thank you.

Hi dainabrisbane...

Normally, the silk are used only to weave sarees... The ones that are used for sarees are not preferred for shirts over here, because of the tropical climate and heat. Not that, those can't be stitched as shirts.. I would suggest you to buy Silk Sarees and Linen or good cotton Shirts, which would be comfortable.
