The Graceful Banarasi Saree

Banarasi Silk Sarees

Banaras originally is another name for the holy city of Varanasi. Benaras or Banaras is a common reference and the set of sarees that were woven originally in Varanasi came to be known as Banaras silks.

Contemporary to the silk sarees of Kanchipuram from the south, Banarasi silk sarees are known for their zari and brocade designs inspired from the Mughal times. As an answer to the traditional pattu, a pure silk banarasi saree carries everything from subtle and bold colours, borders large and small, heavyweight zari and flowing hemlines, to intricately woven body designs.

We live in a time where our minds are attracted to material things that have an appealing outward appearance. Colours and motifs that add shine to the fabric are loved for their external looks but inwardly, they are a shallow load of weight on the fabric.

Elegant and Beautiful Banarasi Sarees

Banaras silks are the answer to women who love the bling on their saree yet wish to keep their attire original, authentic and classy.  With highly revered mentions in ancient scriptures and epics like Mahabharata, Banarasi silks were originally handwoven with the finest of threads for the royal palatial court members. As times changed, the fashion industry has turned out to be inclusive since everyone deserves a royal wardrobe.

Apart from murals on the fabric, banarasi sarees come in a gamut of inspired patterns such as Paithani, Patola and Jamawar. The land of banarasi silks – Varanasi has introduced a plethora of weaving techniques to the world of fashion work -Meenakari, Tanchoi, Jangla and a range of weaves that add the twist of finesse to the realm of royal looks that a banarasi saree lays on you.

There is no dearth of variety in fabrics as well, ranging from brocade sarees, tissue saree, butidar and a couple others. One might wonder why there are so many layers and works of intricacy in a banarasi saree. These sarees were the royal attire. Banarasisarees stand as a proof of time when the Mughal arts such as weaving, dyeing, design creation and the grandeur of attire conglomerated with the silk clothing culture of the Indian sub-continent between the fourteenth and the seventeenth century. So the simplest of banarasi silks are also bound to be exquisite. They are majestic and elegant.
