‘Ilkal’ saree takes its name from the town of Ilkal in the Bagalkot district of Karnataka. Ilkal sarees are woven using cotton warp on the body and art silk warp for border and art silk warp for pallu portion of the saree. In some cases instead of art silk, pure silk is also used.

‘Ilkal’ was an ancient weaving centre where the weaving seems to have started in the 8th century AD.

The peculiar characteristic of the saree is joining the body warp with the pallu warp which is locally called as ‘Topi Teni’. This technique is only used exclusively at Ilkal.
