Maheshwari Saris are made in the ancient town of Maheshwar and have a history dating back to 1500 years. The weaving tradition in the town prospered under the patronage of Maharani Ahiyabai Holkar who ruled the state of Indore between 1765 to 1795.
The Saris are plain or they have stripes or checks with geometric motifs on the borders. The zig zag weave border which is typical of Maheswari Saris is also referred to as the “Narmada Lehar” by Locals
