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.
