BANARASI SAREE

If there is something which is a must-have in every Indian woman’s wardrobe, it’s a Banarasi Silk Saree. Most Indian women across the world adorn the saree to any occasion because of its subtle elegance and classy sophistication. It all started during the Mughal periods. The Mughals specialty was they originally used to embellish these sarees with real gold and silver threads for the royal families. With the migration of silk weavers from Gujarat to Varanasi, later around 19th century, these craftsmanship of the brocade and Zari textiles got shifted to Varanasi. Hence from Varanasi or Banaras, it derived its name as Banarasi.

These sarees are among the finest sarees representing Indian Art & culture and are extremely popular for their opulent gold and silver brocade or zari embroidery on the finest of silk. A typical Banarasi is decorated with intricate designs and motifs allover and as a result of these engravings, these are relatively heavy than other sarees. The intricate Mughal inspired designs such as braiding floral and foliage motifs, kalga and bel, a string of upright leaves called jhallar at the outer edge are the main identification of a Banarasi design. Depending on the nuances in the designs and patterns, a saree can take from 15 days to a month and sometimes up to six months to complete the production. After two years of wait, in 2009, the weaver associations in Uttar Pradesh, secured the Geographical Indication (GI) rights for the ‘Banaras Brocades and Sarees’. As per the GI certificate, Banarasi products fall under four classes, namely silk brocades, textile materials, silk saree, dress material and silk embroidery. Nowadays, Banarasi sarees are not only used as bridal sarees but they are very popular because of their various textures, colors, designs and materials available.

Brocade is a classy and luxuriously decorative fabric which is shuttle woven and frequently made in hued silks and with or without gold and silver threads. The name, identified with a similar root as the word “broccoli”, originates from Italian broccato signifying “emblazoned fabric”. Brocade is commonly woven on a draw loom with a raised and expand configuration, frequently utilizing gold, silver or zari strings. The decorative brocading is created by a valuable, non-basic, weft notwithstanding the standard weft that holds the twist strings together. This is basically to give the appearance that the weave was really weaved on.

The saris are regularly part of an Indian lady’s trousseau. Contingent upon the multifaceted design of its structures and examples, a sari can take from 15 days to a month and in some cases as long as a half year to finish. Banaras Brocade saris are for the most part worn by Indian ladies on significant events, for example, weddings and are required to be supplemented by the lady’s best gems. In 2009, following two years of pause, weaver relationship in Uttar Pradesh, made sure about Geographical Indication (GI) rights for the ‘Banaras Brocades and saris’.
