Banarasi Sari

Woven out of fine silk and bearing elaborate golden embroidery either along the border or all over.

The famous Banarasi Sari made in the holy city of Banaras in Uttar Pradesh state since the ancient times is ranked among the finest traditional sarees of India.

These saris are quite heavy due to its rich embroidery and are donned by Indian women only during special occasions like wedding, parties and festivities.

Most ladies wear heavy gold jewellery to complement the Banarasi sari.
