We have seen the traditional Benarasi saree or heirloom cotton saree, adorning our mothers and grandmothers. These hand-spun benarasi sarees are crafted with a lot of diligence and patience. Reflecting an aura of our ancestors who decked up in these ethnic beauties woven by our artists, benarasis are a symbol of uninhibited beauty!
#Benarasi #saree has made brides beautiful for generations. But how many of us know the real stories behind these hand woven beauties? The sheer hard work behind this attire is often untold and as a result, they are not given the desired admiration they need.
Handmade benarasi sarees, made in manual loom, are crafted with utmost care to bring glorious designs and artwork to life. They sew the raw materials to create stories on the cloth; the stories of their lives, emotions, and expressions!
At India Imprints, we desire to showcase the labour of such type of saree makers to all those admirers who wish to be a part of their journey. Their talent of creating masterpieces deserves respect and recognition.
We desire to bring the hard work of the small scale cottage industries in front. We wish to acknowledge their pains as well as joy, imbibed in every piece of thread sewed. Together, we want to revive the glory of this exquisite art of designing sarees that is being carried on for thousands of years.
