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!
