Banarasi brocade is a treasured Indian handloom and not merely a fabric that celebrates history and intricacy. It is one of the prominent fabrics worn for special occasions and never loses in the fashion race, similar to the case of ‘old is gold’.
Banarasi brocade is considered to be rich and heavy because of the gold and zari work that is done on the fabric which gives a very royal and luxurious feel.
As trends and styles have changed, brocade patterns are getting more and more modernized. From simplistic patterns to complex designs, it has evolved a lot in terms of designing and styling. Indian designers have changed the way we wear Banarasi weaves and have given the limelight to revive this traditional skill.
