Venkatagiri saris, woven in the small coastal town of the same name, are the pride of Andhra weaving traditions. They are mostly woven in cottons with a delicate zari border. The body is usually plain or with beautiful self checks that make the border prominent. The hues of the Venkatagiri saris are usually bright that can highlight the zari border.

This sari follows the Venkatagiri weaving tradition to the hilt. The body of the sari is plain in dark violet color with self-checks making the plain body a little more prominent. The border of the sari is on both sides. Set against a green background, the border is woven in zari threads with peacock motifs woven in a horizontal sequence. The peacock motif is a favorite with the Venkatagiri saris and probably represents the vehicle of the god 'Subramanyam' who finds a lot of devotees in the Southern part of India.

The pallav is plain with vertical zari threads. Overall the sari is a great evening and summer wear and is suited to all age groups. The crisp cotton texture of the sari makes it very elegant and comfortable to wear.
