Meticulous craftsmanship behind each weave

The creation of a Banaras silk saree can vary from 15 days to a month, and sometimes up to six months, depending on the complexity of its designs. Celebrated for their richness, these weaves are meticulously crafted with gold and silver brocade or zari, fine silk, and intricate embroidery.

Avatars of the Banarasi weave

The Banaras silk saree dons various avatars, which are predominantly classified into pure silk (Katan), Organza (Kora) with Zari and silk, Georgette, and Shattir. These weaves are further classified based on the design process, encompassing Jangla, Tanchoi, Vaskat, Cutwork, Tissue, and Butidar.
