Banarasi Silk Saree


The charm of a banarasi saree is unmatched even after so many years and so much evolution in the saree world. This flattering saree is the most versatile garment that India has blessed the world with. Banarasi saree has originated from the city of Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh, India. The city is famous for its different types of fabrics like muslin, silk, etc. The sheer elegance and beauty of the banarasi saree are incomparable to any other saree. Banarasi saree also has a geographical indication (GI) certification from the Indian government.

First, the design is made on paper or basically punched into the paper like braille. There are 100 such pattern guides that help make one single saree. Based on these patterns or Patras, the dyed silk and zari threads are wound into the handloom to create a desired pattern for the saree. The price range of a single banarasi saree ranges from Rs 3,000 to Rs 200,000 lakh depending on the intricacy of the design. A decent one with decent designing costs around Rs 8,000 to Rs 10,000. Red banarasi sarees are famous for Indian weddings and bridal functions. This perfect fabric is a must-have in every woman's wardrobe.



Historians have been tracing this fabric back to the Vedic times. Silk has also been called the attire of gods in the Rigveda. Emperor Akbar loved elite things, therefore he loved the zari work on the silk too. This is now called the banarasi saree. He also used it as carpet, wall hangings, etc. The weave initially had the designing and the craftsmanship of the Mughal empire. Now, it's a mixture of the Indian and Mughal empires. The weave has designs that are made with gold and silver threads and originally they were embellished with threads from real silver and gold. Sadly, that made the saree very heavy and expensive, therefore people started preferring a slight faker and a light version of the authentic banarasi saree. This is why gold plated copper wire is used nowadays to make it more affordable and light. It takes around 15 days to 1 month to 6 months to craft a banarasi saree depending on the complexity of the design. Emporiums of ancient ways of weaving a banarasi saree can still be seen in varanasi.
