Our collection Bunti, sees the regal and luxurious Banarasi weave in vibrant colors, rustling silks, glistening accents and intricate motifs. Although the origin of Banarasi Silk is not clear, it is said that the earliest mention of weaving in Banaras is found in the Rig Veda.
Dating back from 1500 BC to 500 BC, the Vedic text mentions weavers as Tantuvayas who make clothes of various types such as cotton, silk and brocades, which were then known as " Hirayana ''. As per Buddhist legends it is believed that after the enlightenment of Lord Buddha, his mortal remains were wrapped in Banarasi fabric that emanated red, blue and yellow rays. These references in Buddhist literatures do point to the fact that brocade was existent in Varanasi since then, an ancient city which is also called Banaras/Kashi/Banaras. During the Mughal period around the 14th century, the artisans from Banaras started making their presence by developing unique and complicated silk brocades using gold and silver zari threads. This weave is finely woven with intricate designs and patterns using fine quality silk. Our collection sees a variety of Banarasi fabrics like Silk, Tussar Silk, Georgette, Tissue, Organza and Chiffon, as well as different types of weaves such as Khadua, Jaal, Shikar, etc.
