The silk saris that are religiously brought and then worn by the females here are actually from various South Indian cities such as Bangalore. What the Sari weavers do is that they weave the basic texture of the sari on the power loom and with weaving the warp they form the base, which hits 24 to 26 meters. In a breathtaking Banarasi Sari there are approximately 5600 thread wires with 45-inch width. This entire task involves teamwork. And on average only three people are taken in the creation the Sari. One weaves, the other engrosses in the spinning circle to produce bundles. After that another significant procedure commences which is linked with designing the motifs.

One really needs to be a smart player before buying the authentic Benarasi Sari as you might be befooled by the shopkeeper and bought the imitated piece on a much higher price.
