The motifs that make up the thick border of this Banarasi saree clearly draw form Mughal aesthetics. Ample florals and foliage have been intricately entwined on the pale pink of the foundation silk, with pastel-coloured threads from medium-sized to the finest available in the market. Across the solid-coloured field of the saree is a plethora of gold booties, woven into the fabric with a finesse that could only be found in the work of the Banarasi weaver. Note the way the soft pink of the border transitions into a richer gradient at the pale gold endpiece. This is just the saree to wear to an evening wedding ritual teamed with some statement jewels from your collection.
