Threadwork Paithani Saree - Cotton. Sourced from the weavers' form of Paithan in Aurangabad, Maharastra. Handwoven
Paithani is a variety of saree, named after the Paithan town in Aurangabad, Maharashtra State in India where the sarees are woven by hand. It is considered one of the richest saris from India.
One paithani saree takes roughly 8 to 10 days to complete. What makes a real Paithani saree unique is the weaving method, the ornate designs, and its splendid gold and silver thread latticework. This saree is apart from others because of its proprietary weaving technique called the “Pallavi.” The method involves weaving two colored threads, producing a trademark kaleidoscope effect. Artisans manage the entire process by hand, from the dying of the yarn to the actual weaving. They use handlooms to weave the saree’s main section. The pallav, with its distinct borders, is similar to tapestry weaving, one of the world’s most ancient weaving techniques.
