With every Baluchari saree that you buy, you are adding to your wardrobe, many yards of the complex and rich history of India. Balucharis are among the traditional and most exquisite silk sarees from Bengal. Famed for the intricate thread-work and designs, the Balucharis are defined by their festive and gorgeous aanchals that bring to life various tales and scenes from Indian religious texts and epics. Typically made with cotton or silk, the opulence of these sarees makes them perfect for wearing at festivals, grand functions, and weddings. These features have led to high demand and have propelled the sale of Baluchari sarees online as well.
Typically, one saree takes five to six days to be woven. An original Baluchari was seen as a sign of status and aristocracy. Traditionally, the scenes depicted in the aanchal of a Baluchari are from the Ramayana and Mahabharata.
The Baluchari or Baluchuri saree was one of the award winners for the main weaving styles amongst thirty-four National Awards for the years 2009 & 2010. This award presented by the Hon. President Sh.Pranab Mukherjee has put this art-form on a global platform and has given baluchari sarees an online recognition.
Balucharis can be classified based on the type of thread that is used in the weaving of the patterns:
Resham: This weaving utilizes threads in one or two colors that are used to weave the entire pattern of the saree.
Meenakari: This method also uses threads in one or two colors, but the pattern is also imbibed with colourful meenakari work that helps brighten the saree further.
Swarnachari: This weave uses gold threads that are sometimes complemented with silver threads to create an illuminated pattern that takes the look of the saree to a completely new level.
