Banarasi

Banarasi

Banarasi saris are considered one of the finest saris in India. These saris are made of finely woven silk and are decorated with elaborate engravings. Because of these engravings, these saris are relatively heavy. Banarasi saris are mostly worn by Indian women on important occasions such as when attending a wedding and are expected to be complemented by the woman's best jewelry.

The age-old magic of a Banarasi sari has now been recreated on a new platform. In a makeover design, Taj Hotels Resorts and Palaces, decided the welcoming staff at the group’s Luxury Hotels would be draped in the rich colours and designs of the Banarasi six yards.
