Shortlisting the wedding outfits can be one of the most intimidating tasks for the newly-weds, especially the bridal saree or lehenga. Going through at least a hundred ensembles and visiting each and every shop in the narrow streets of Chandni Chowk can also be pretty exhausting, when you already have a million things on your to-do list for the festivities. However, this is where your very own beloved ethnic closet, WeaverStory , comes in handy; with a wide collection of traditional handcrafted lehengas, sarees, blouses, dupattas, suits and creative artisanal textiles, our establishment's both online and offline shops can make this shopping process far less hectic for the family and a lot more enjoyable!
While our entire handloom collection of fabrics is popularly known for its eco-friendly characteristics and sheer hand weaving techniques, our Banarasi Silk Sarees are purely a quintessential bridal attire for your special day and more essentially, a flawless part of the trousseau culture. Now, we all are perfectly aware that a marriage ceremony is an unforgettable moment of a woman's life, her ultimate becoming, and here's a list of reasons for why you absolutely should trust our collection of Banarasi Silk Sarees.
A PARAMOUNT INVESTMENT
Time and again, Banarasi Silk Sarees have proven themselves to be like diamonds; they are timeless, are a reflection of your reputation and class, show that you have an expensive taste and most importantly, they last forever if nurtured and taken care of properly. Only worn by the Mughal queens and the Royal empresses in the ancient times, Banarasi Silk Sarees are a personification of luxury and culture. They simply radiate elegance, by making you an epitome of ephemeral grace and an extravagant taste. Woven using the thread work of gold and silver alloys and embellished with zari, the production of Banarasi Silk Sarees, in a way, mirrors the making of jewellery pieces and heavy antique artefacts.
Our Handloom Maroon Pure Katan Silk Kimkhab Banarasi Saree With Antique Zari has an imperial aura that will leave you wanting for more, and just like the name "Kimkhab" which translates to "a little dream" in Persian, the saree seems like an exquisite, everlasting, crimson dream. Pair it with a studded choker set and a heavy mangtika to complete the princely look.
REMEMBERING OUR ROOTS
Whenever we think about the Banarasi Silk Sarees, the first thing that comes to our mind is our long forgotten cultural history and Indian heritage. The floral and leafy motifs on these handwoven sarees, along with the fauna like structures and the jaal on the pallu and the twisted silk threads, are linguistically known as booti, is known to pay a tribute to the Mughal dynasty, their cultural and architecture. Banarasi Silk Sarees take us back to a time period when people were still working with fine craftsmanship and dedication, when no wedding trousseau was complete without them, when we valued and trusted our local Indian artisans more than the Westernized machinery and technology.
WeaverStory prides in its ability to bring some of the purest works of these artists to you and with cutwork booti and a heavily pallu, Handloom Navy Blue Pure Katan Silk Banarasi Saree Booti With Meenakari Booti, is a prime example of that. Wear some rose gajra and silver oxidised jewellery with the saree, to revisit the reminisces of the past and time travel back to our roots.
A STYLISH COMEBACK
Now I know what y'all are thinking, why should we modern ladies buy something that has "antique" or "traditional" or perhaps "cultural" in its name? So to answer your anxieties my dear mademoiselles, let's not forget the very famous phrase about history repeating itself, and how you all are in the perfect timeline where Banarasi Silk Sarees are making a stylish and impactful comeback!
