Silk Paithani Saree is a handloom Saree in 100% pure Mulberry Silk yarn that comes from Bengaluru and handwoven in a village in Maharashtra. Known as handwoven poems in Gold and Silk, Paithani Saree speaks of grandeur and indeed are considered glory of Maharashtra! Absolutely revered, these hold a treasured place in the trousseau of a Maharashtrian bride. In the ancient times it was considered no less than an ornamental treasure & was in fact used as currency. Fine Silk from China with real Gold & Silver yarns were used to weave a Paithani & Romans imported this golden woven fabric in exchange for gold of equal weight. Even today in many households it is considered as a precious heirloom that is passed on from generation to generation. It’s a heritage!
The border & pallu are of brocade, woven with zari and multiple coloured silk yarns. Now, typically, Silk weighs about 500gms & Zari around 250gms. The zari has Silver mixed with Copper for strength & then plated Gold by dipping in Gold water. All metals are pure. The body of a Paithani Saree has bootis but highlight is the border design & pallu, characterizing the Paithani style. Motifs are Traditional, inspired from figures in Ajanta Caves and are derived from nature that forms an essential part of human life. Paithani motifs are usually large in scale & colours used are multiple & bold, forming its unique feature.

The pallu too is Brocade (Gold Zari) with Hastkala motif of twin peacock and flowers. The body has Gold Zari bootis, fairly big with peacock woven on it. The attached blouse piece is plain silk in body colour maroon & running with border on either side.
