What is Banaras? Everybody has a diversified picture relating it to a pilgrimage place, also known as the city of temples with ghats, innumerable lanes and street foods, banarasi paan (betel leaf), boat rides and saree lovers like me associate it with Banarasi Silk that is sure to deliver you an atrocious experience.
Benares is older than history, older than tradition, older even than legend, and looks twice as old as all of them put together.
------- by Mark Twain
The same goes for Silk. It is an archaic fabric that originated from silkworms and mulberry leaves that holds the highest prestige among all dressmaking fabrics. Silk is an irresistible splendid yarn that has a glossy luxurious appearance. A realm of royalty and then of the elite, the charm of this fabric is imperishable in the heart of ladies.
In ancient times, silk was hand weaved to transform it into saree which was arduous and time-taking task but the outcome was beyond compare. Many of us might think that the increased use of powerloom techniques of making sarees and other fabrics today, have gradually brought this hand-weaving tradition on the verge of dying.
