Banarasi Georgettes & Pure Banarasi Crepes

44 products

The weaving of Banarasi georgettes is a highly skilled craft that originated in Varanasi (formerly known as Banaras), a city in the northern part of India. The weavers use handlooms to create these fabrics, and the process involves painstakingly weaving silk threads to form the intricate patterns. The motifs are typically woven with zari, which is a metallic thread made of gold or silver. The zari work adds a touch of opulence and grandeur to the fabric.

Banarasi georgettes are favored for their elegance and versatility. They are commonly used in creating traditional Indian outfits such as sarees, lehengas (long skirts), and salwar kameez (a combination of trousers and a tunic). The lightweight and draping qualities of georgette make it a popular choice for creating flowing and graceful silhouettes.
