The rich history and legacy of Banarasi brocades and silks
Banarasi weaving a true feat of diligence and excellent craftsmanship. Making a standard banarasi saree can take from 15 days to a month and sometimes up to six months; it is often made by three designers working on it simultaneously and uses nearly 5600 thread wires to create its intricate brocade and zari patterns. The most commonly found Banarsi patterns and motifs find their inspirations from nature and are broadly divided into seven variations - Jangla, Tanchoi, Tissue, Butidar, Cutwork, and Jamdani.
Jangla is a rich embroidery style featuring floral designs done in a riot of colourful threads. Tanchoi is woven with weft silk threads criss-crossing to form intricate kaleidoscopic patterns. Tissue Banarasi garments are made with golden threads to give the impression of a lustrous, light fabric. The Butidar style features a signature dark blue fabric woven with silver and gold threads, this contrasting look has earned it the name of the ‘Ganga Jamuna’ design. The Cutwork technique removes floating threads on a plain texture, creating a light, breathable, and satin-like look. Lastly, the gorgeous Jamdani embroidery style uses figured muslin and silk fabrics brocaded with the cotton to create its beautiful patterns.
