Having a Baluchari in your wardrobe is similar to bringing home the vast and rich cultural history of India in a unique and creative manner. The first Nawab of Bengal, Murshid Quli Khan brought this Baluchari tradition to Bengal which has its weaving style characterized by depiction of themes on mythological scenes and centre filled with figural motifs in rows. The one shown on this page is a typical Baluchari style, woven on a superfine Bengal silk fabric allowing for a soft drape. The black colour of this Bengal Baluchari sari adds to the royal lustre and further enhances the personality of the wearer.


The centre space is decorated with hand embroidered motifs of alternately placed flowers and the courtly apsaras in defined rows, blowing out shankh (conch) as an indication to the start of various instances of Ramayana, woven on the pallu. As you zoom in to the image, you can see that the entire sari is surrounded by a narrow ornamental border woven with repeated motif of, Sita been fascinated by the beauty of the deer. Click on the image that displays clear embroideries of pallu, to have an essence of the royalty of this Baluchari silk sari. The entire pallu is designed in horizontal layers with each depicting a different episode from Ramayana.


Appreciation lies not just in the beauty of patterns, episodes and colour combinations, but also by the way every figurine is embroidered in striking facial features and accurate body postures as if recreating those epic scenes in a realistic manner. You can have this richness draped in any marriage ceremony or any other family get together to shine out in the gathering.
