Banarasi or Benarasi Weaving is one of the oldest and most versatile weaving clusters in the Indian Subcontinent. Zari & Brocade textiles are the specialties of Banaras. The saris of Banaras are named after the motifs – shikargarh, ada bel (foliage motifs), kalga (floral) and more. Banarasi saris are also woven in different materials – Pure Silk (Katan), Organza (Kora) and Georgettes.
