The art of dyeing silk is the story of transforming raw silk to colouredyarn and further enhancing the weaving process with customized designs with the warps and wefts. The dyeing process is cautiously practice as it involves boiling of the yarn in the high temperature. Repeated boiling and cooling of the yarn helps in the uniformity of the dye application. On completion, the dyed yarn is dried in shade at room temperature. This dyeing process is documented from the silk city of Dhrmavaram located in Anantapur district of Andhra Pradesh.
