Originating in the late 1700s, these opulent sarees have crafted a legacy that’s only surpassed by the raw beauty of their designs. Starting as a stunning garment worn by weavers, Banarasi sarees take inspiration from Gujarati artisans.
Designed with luxurious bright gold Zari and bordered with awe-inspiring silver or gold brocade, these sarees create an aura of enviable beauty and untouchable grace. These heavenly weaves add opulence and charm to your form.
The beautiful Banarasi is used in various fabrics such as Silk, Satin, Chiffon or Georgette. The weave lends to Butta figures and designs. The richly woven fabric works well in light to medium and bright colours.
Experiment with a Bengali Atpoure drape that uses box pleats in the front, and pallu on both shoulders.
Only dry clean them. They should be nestled within layers of muslin and stored away from sunlight or heat.
Apt for traditional functions and other special family gatherings. Adorn a Banarasi during colourful festivals.
