Paithani

 

Paithani

 A royalty among sarees, the handloom Paithani saree holds a treasured place in the trousseau of every Maharashtrian bride. Symbolising the spirit of true Maharashtrian culture, the ‘Queen of Silks’ is called so rightly because only royals and aristocrats once wore it. These 9 yards are handwoven and characterized by a luxurious and liberal use of gold, floral and bird-inspired motifs. The intricacy of designs and traditional complex patterns along with a joyful intermingling of hues creates the delicate illusion of shifting colours on this weave.
