Banarasi sari, is among the finest saris in India originated in the holy town of Benaras/Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh. A reflection of timeless craftsmanship this sari is known for their gold and silver brocade or zari, fine silk, opulent motifs and process behind the creation of one masterpiece.
The saris are created using finely woven silk with intricate designs and numerous techniques within the same category. There are four main varieties of Banarasi saris, which includes pure silk (Katan), Organza (Kora) with Zari and silk; Georgette and Shattir. According to the design process, they are further divided into categories like Jangla(Foliate motifs), Tanchoi(Extra weft), Vaskat, Cutwork(Kadhua work), Tissue(Zari weft) and Butidar(Buta motif style).

Mughal inspired designs are prevalent in all styles of Banarasi Saris.
Other features are gold work, compact weaving, figures with small details, metallic visual effects, pallus, Kadhua work and mina work(Use of multiple colours in motifs). The sari is most often a part of an Indian bride's trousseau, mostly in Northern India.

Depending on the intricacy of its designs and patterns, a sari can take from 15 days to a month and sometimes up to six months to complete. Banarasi saris are mostly worn by Indian women on important occasions such as weddings and are expected to be complemented by the woman's best jewellery.
