Kottans, the Chettinad jewellery, are known for their unique style and colours. Making Kottans was the hobby craft of the women and these were traditionally used for giving gifts. The raw material used is the palmyra leaf, making the craft eco-friendly. To create these products, the palm leaf is harvested and spread out like a fan to dry for between five to six days before being spliced with a knife into thin strips. The weavers braid the dried leaves into patterns using their hands to weave and feet to grip the base of the jewellery. Colorful cotton cloth and beads are sometimes used to enhance the object. The proceeds from the sale of these Kottans will help the craftswomen of South India.
