Story Behind the Art:
These saris are made by artisans in Banaras. One of the oldest cities in history, Banaras is steeped deeply in myth and has a rich textile heritage. The weaver community uses power-looms to make sari's and only 3 sari's are produced per day per power loom. The entire family is usually involved in the sari making process. The weavers, who often spend their lives bringing alive delicate designs, measure their existence in meters of silk, inch by inch-the sari and all it symbolizes is the fabric of their life.These traditions of using the women in the family-who are always only involved in the first aspect of the sari making-still continues.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

Questions & Answers
Looks lovely; hope I can use it. Vibrant colors.
At the end of the fabric is the beautiful Gold Motif, is that also at the other end of the fabric? Or is that only at the one end?
Hello disney0596, the design is only on one side of the fabric, the other side is plain and is usually the inside part when the sari is wrapped. Also not that the small portion of the other side is also used to make the blouse. The fabric has to be cut and stitched into a blouse. Have a good day!
