Fabric - Pure Banarasi Katan Silk.
Katan silk is known for its lustrous appearance and fine texture. It is often used to create high-quality sarees, dupattas, and other traditional Indian garments. Katan silk sarees are especially popular for their intricate designs and vibrant colors.
The process of creating katan silk is highly specialized and requires skilled artisans. The silk is first sorted, and the highest quality filaments are selected. These filaments are then twisted together by hand, using a process known as "dobhi". The resulting thread is strong and durable, with a unique texture and shine.
Weave – Phekua or cutwork
Phekwa brocade is a traditional Banarasi weaving technique that uses extra weft threads to create intricate motifs across the width of the fabric. Cutwork, or katruan, is a technique used in Phekwa brocade where the extra weft threads are clipped off to create a sublime effect. Cutwork Banarasi sarees are made using cotton warp threads and regular weft threads to create embossed designs featuring floral motifs. The result is a luxurious and beautiful fabric that is highly sought after. These weaving techniques are just two examples of the rich and diverse traditions found in Banarasi saree weaving.
