by Beatitude IN Executive
Sarees are not just the six yard of drape graced by women since ages but these also showcase rich Indian culture and tradition in its diverse variety, styles and patterns. Women's love and passion for sarees has brought a diverse range of saree in India, with each having its own magical charm and appeal. Among the extensive variety of sarees, Banarasi saree is called the queen of Indian ethnic sarees. Artistically designed using gold or silver brocade, this saree hailed from the holy city of Varanasi and is a fine example of Indian artistry having its root seeped in India's rich cultural history. Originally this saree was exclusively crafted for royalty using real gold and silver threads and would take almost a year to make. Handwoven by adept and skilled artisans, Banarasi sarees are fine blend of magnificence and opulence, imparting women with royal and classy look.     

Banarasi saree is amongst the most beautiful and popular sarees found in the entire world. The roots of its rich past date back to the Mahabharata and Buddhist scriptures from the first millennium. However, the saree attains its popularity with the coming of the Mughals to India, who brought highly skilled artisans and weavers with them, who were expert in the art of weaving Banarasi sarees. The saree was crafted combining both Indian and Persian styles and was decorated with flora motifs or booties across the entire length. Made using the finest silks, Banarasi sarees are adorned with delicate embroidery and intricate zari work, even the borders of these sarees are intricately designed with interesting creeper designs spread across the border. Taking into consideration Indian values, ethos and tradition, Banarasi saree is woman's highly coveted possession and has been a significant part of the Indian bride wardrobe since ages and is still their favourite. 

Banarasi saree rarely fails to flatter any woman and impart them with a royal and elegant feel that is hard to achieve with any other sarees. Varanasi being a prominent silk handloom weaving centre in India and Banarasi saree being the most popular product of their handloom, people used to earlier visit this city just to buy some exclusive pieces of Banarasi sarees. But thanks to the online stores, today women can easily buy their favourite Banarasi saree right from the comfort of their home at competitive prices. Besides, buying it online will also provide women with a much wider base of colours and designs to choose from. With different styles and designs of sarees available, Banarasi  sarees are all-time classic and a must-have for the saree connoisseurs.
