What is Mangalgiri Cotton?

Andhra Pradesh is well known for its cotton, which is woven across the state.
If you are looking for variety in pure cotton weaves, look no further than Mangalgiri - the small weaving district in Andhra Pradesh that made it to the big league. While each weaving district has its own speciality, none of the others can match the versatility and range that is offered by the Mangalgiri weavers.


Approximately 12 km from Vijayawada, towards Guntur district in Andhra Pradesh, is this small town, which has become synonymous with cool, comfortable, hand-woven cotton fabrics in a palette of striking colours, motifs and patterns. Mangalgiri , literally translated as ‘Holy Mountain’, Mangalgiri has indeed become a pilgrimage of sorts for people in search of cotton woven the traditional way.
