Banarasi Sarees - A Weaving Wonder Oozing with Tradition, History, and Craftsmanship


Hailing from the holy ghats of Varanasi, Banarasi sarees are one of the finest sarees in India owing to their rich history and skilled weaving techniques. This saree will stand out from the clutter thanks to its gold and silver brocade or zari. The Banarasi sarees are relatively heavy as well, owing to their heavy embroidery work. You don’t have to head to multiple stores anymore, as you can buy Banarasi sarees online. You can choose from exquisite Banarasi sarees collections on your favorite shopping site. And while you shop for Banarasi sarees online, here is a quick guide that will take you through its history, making, motifs, and patterns. 


Going Back in Time to Discover the Brilliance Behind Banarasi Sarees


Let’s take a break from our phones and cameras and head back to the 19th century. A time in history that marked the emergence of significant movements, particularly in India. The art of weaving Banarasi silk as we know it today became more prominent in the 19th century. However, the emergence of this silk is credited to the Mughal emperor Akbar, who was known for his penchant for the finer things in life. He also loved intricate embroidery made from gold, thereby paving the way for the Banarasi silk saree. The traditional Banarasi saree undergoes a stringent procedure that involves the hard work of several weavers. Let us now try and understand the making of a pure Banarasi silk saree, what say?


The Weaving Process of Banarasi Sarees


If you traverse to a factory that makes Banarasi sarees, you will be invited to the place with a loom that is elaborately arranged with resham threads. Thin metallic strips are flattened and then woven around silk yarns to make the zari for the saree. This zari is then weaved onto the silk fabric to create beautiful patterns, which in turn become the gorgeous Banarasi silk saree. Several motifs are created out of these zari threads for the pallu of the saree. These motifs help in distinguishing the Banarasi saree from the rest. 


Creating the Pattern for the Banarasi Silk Saree


If you have a look at the Banarasi saree collections , you will be privy to a wide range of pieces made from a variety of shades, designs, and patterns. There is no bot involved here to create the unique designs on the saree. The designs are first created on paper and then punched onto paper. Hundreds of patterns come together like this to design a saree that is vivid and colorful. Floral motifs are some of the most commonly found patterns in Banarasi sarees. Now, you might be wondering as to how long does it take to weave a Banarasi saree? In order to ensure that the saree that is brought to the market is perfect, the weavers sit together and take at least 15 days to a month. Some of the higher-end Banarasi sarees even take six months. These sarees are prominently worn by the bride on her wedding day. 


The Colors and Motifs of a Banarasi Saree


When you go for Banarasi sarees online shopping, you will be exposed to a wide range of sarees in a host of colors. From bright colors to darker shades, your eyes will gleam in delight by the sheer variety of this piece that can be seen online. The delightful Banarasi sarees prices online, make them a must-have in your cart. Some of the popular range of colors include blue, yellow, orange, red, and purple. Since these sarees have a lot of gold and silver zari work, these colors are bound to stand out from the crowd even with the design. There are several motifs that are printed on Banarasi sarees. Some of them even have traces of the Mughal era. Going back in time, the Mughal era had several sarees with motifs such as floral patterns, stylised leaves, and jali work. It was highly influenced by the major aspects of the Mughal dynasty. With time, the sarees took a contemporary twist with the appearance of geometrical motifs and Hindu Gods. 


Types and Varieties of Banarasi Sarees


While you can distinguish a Banarasi saree from the rest owing to their grand motifs, it should also be noted that they differ in their types. There are four varieties of Banarasi sarees - the pure silk sarees (katan), Organza (kora) with zari, georgette, and shattir sarees. While all of these sarees are popular, the pure silk Banarasi silk saree or katan remains to be the most sought-after owing to their originality and purity. Even when it comes to designs, you can categorize the Banarasi sarees into several types again. Some of the most popular types of Banarasi sarees in terms of design include tanchoi, tissue, cutwork, and butidar. 


How to Accessorize Your Banarasi Saree 


While wearing a Banarasi sarees itself can make you look drop-dead gorgeous, accessorizing it right can further elevate your look. If you are going to wear a Banarasi saree in a darker shade such a purple or parrot green, you can opt to go for a simple chain and complete the look with a traditional bindi. On the other hand, if you are opting for a plain Banarasi saree that is orange or pink in color, you can opt for heavier jewellery to complete the look. You can also experiment with your blouse patterns. You can opt for a sleeveless blouse if you want to look chic and happening. If you are heading for a formal event, you can club your Banarasi saree with a long-sleeved blouse with heavy embroidery on the arms.
