Banaras, or Varanasi, holy city of temples, where, by the taking of a dip in the Ganges river, Hindus believe one gets closer to salvation, one also gets to see a grand offering – the Banarasi saree. Notwithstanding a flurry of traditional silks across the country, the Banarasi Saree has always held out as a unique fabric of traditional excellence.
The grandeur of the Banarasi silk sari
In an awesome display of grandeur, Banarasi Silk sarees have always been exclusive and captivating. Finely woven, with rich brocades in gold, silver zari, including fine designs and engravings, the relatively heavy and opulent affair is part of every bride’s trousseau and a must-have finery fabric for weddings and exclusive occasions in many Indian homes. The speciality of the Banarasi sari lies in its use of zari or rich gold and silver coloured thread work on motifs and brocades. The influence of Mughal designs is evident from the awesome floral and leafy motifs known as ‘kalga’ and ‘bel’ and outer border designs of upright leaves known as ‘Jhallar’. In addition the heavy gold work on the brocades, the compact weaving of the base fabric, the small detailing, metallic visual effects, the mesh pattern and the intricate embroidery work are all contributive towards making the Banarasi silk sari, a rich traditional offering and a national pride. The brocade is woven on a draw loom through a special technique involving a supplementary weft. This ornamental addition through the revolutionary special arrangement known as ‘jacquard’ has expanded the horizons of pattern making on fabrics.
Four to five centuries have passed and this tradition of fine weaving has neither dimmed nor lost lustre. In fact the Banarasi Silk Saree has continued to remain as exceptional and finely sought as before. Over the years additions and introductions within the weave have never seemed out of place. Despite being woven in traditional style, the fusion elements have seamlessly merged to become a part of its rich and dazzling heritage.
