Sarees are without doubt, a symbol of artistic perfection that accents the grace of womanliness. The six yards that adopt designs of any kind, bring an unlimited pour of sheer beauty. We know that Sarees are classified and sectioned under many impressive names based on their origin, nature, or material. 

Out of all such types, the dignity and splendour held by Indian Banarasi Sarees are worth being immersed in. For they are cultured in threads that reveal a stately and irreplaceable presence. 

Through the history of Banarasi Saree

If Farrukhabad has Antique Zari, Varanasi has the Banarasi Silk. 

Banarasi Silk Sarees are one of the most stunning creations from the handlooms of Varanasi, the Spiritual Capital of India. The weaving of Banarasi Silk Sarees started in the place after a silk-waver population of Gujarat migrated to Banaras during 1603. The Mughal Period witnessed elaborate designing on Banarasi Silk, with a stress on silvery and ornate weaves. 

Banarasi Saree : The Essence

Up to 3 workers are required to make one Banarasi Saree that overflows with pure silk’s wondrous and intricate designs. The complexity of designs demand 15 days to 6 months to be finished in the most flawless manner possible. A wide variety of motifs and prints are taken to be the spotlight of every Banarasi Silk drape. Katan Banarasi Silk is the prime variant, which itself is pure silk carrying twisted threads that form designs. The other kinds of Banarasi Sarees come under/as Georgette, Jangla, Tanchoi, Organza, Cutwork, Tissue, Butidar and much more. 

Beauteos Brides in Banarasi Silk

Bridal wears are always daring enough to get a clutch on traditional styles while setting a trend, and mostly there is a love for Kanchipuram in weddings. Yet, as obvious as it is, the Banarasi Bridal Sarees did in fact make a huge wave in many bridal tales including that of the Bollywood beauty Anushka Sharma who toned her reception looks quite fabulously wearing a red Banarasi Saree. 

Many brides in even Kerala and Tamil Nadu have all dolled up themselves in the grandeur of Wedding Banarasi Sarees. 

Spending on Banarasi Sarees

The price in a Banarasi Saree is entirely dependent on the complexity of works contained. The cost of Banarasi Sarees starts from around 4000 INR and can range up to lakhs, if they are involved in the use of original gold and silver zari. The Indian crowd is constantly love-struck in Banarasi Sarees, no matter how expensive their price ranges turn out to be; because there is something that Banarasi silk adds which no other form of saree can.
