This is a Malkha Cotton, a "Mul" + "Khadi". The fabric is handwoven yet it has a texture of Khadi. A process called baling, to compact cotton fibres for ease of transport, is avoided while creating this fabric which gives it a natural fall and elasticity. Because of unbaling the fabric does not need regular ironing and drapes great.
The saree is handblock printed kalamkari saree.
