Story Behind the Art:
Madhu Agrawal was born in India's Varanasi City. 'It was originally known as Banaras, and hence the silk from here is called Banarasi,' she explains. 'My actual involvement with Banarasi silk began when I married my husband since his family and now, I've set up my own studio where I am able to help generate work for more weavers. It takes three people to weave one saree, and it can take 15 days to six months to complete one, depending upon the intricacy of the design.'
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.
