  • In this experience you are taken to Madanpura village, which is known for its highly sophisticated silk sari designs, shades of colours and effective use of gold and silver zari.
  • During ancient times, Banaras was famous for the weaving of cotton saris, but it slowly switched over to silk during the Mughal period.
  • Weaving of brocades with intricate designs using gold and silver threads is the speciality of Banaras. Brocade refers to those textiles wherein patterns are created in weaving by transfixing or thrusting the pattern-thread between the warp. When gold and silver threads are used along with or without silk-threads, it is called zari brocade.
  • The Banaras saris have a wide variation, however, several weaving and design characteristics distinguish them from other Indian brocades. The designs and patterns of the Banarasi silk saris differ as the supplementary thread designs, including dense border patterns, are almost always woven as discontinuous supplementary-weft with highly decorated end-piece or pallu.
