Generally considered as traditional city, very fine cotton mills are here, well a typical saree made in Coimbatore region is called as 'Kovai Cora cotton' or 'Kovai Kora cotton' sarees. Due to extreme summers and humid climatic here, always one cannot think of wearing heavy silk or just cottons, this led to innovation of 'Coimbatore sico sarees' here.

Lovely 'Kovai Kora' are made from a blend of silk and cottons, this fine and superior quality cotton yarns is mixed with traditional silk to produce excellent Kora cottons and are weaved on traditional hand-looms.

The main body of the saree is eiher plain, they are very light weight, pallu(falling edge of the saree) have designs, wonderful classy sarees have brocaded borders with bright colored border and threadwork borders which are stunning, stripes are noticed in the saree, zari is not of much importance, just rarely used. Now a days new attractive patterns are seen, trendy designs and vibrant colors, which appeal to young chics, higher versions of these sarees carries handcrafted thread and zari work, which are very intricate and refined ones.
