How to identify Mangalagiri sarees?

The Mangalagiri sari does not have any embellishments on its main body. It has zari or gold thread work embellished with Nizam border and pallu. These geometric and simple designs are inspired by tribal designs. Since these sarees only have a zari border and a zari on the pallu without any pattern woven on the main body of the sari, so the fabric is only woven on looms, which allows the weaver to exercise much more force during the weaving process without any gaps. This is what sets Mangalagiri textiles apart from other weavings.
