About Banarasai silk

The first Banarasi silk sarees were created in 1603 when weavers from Gujarat moved to Banaras under the rule of Emperor Akbar. The Banarasi silk saree was created with its traditional designs and is now admired for its high quality. During the Mughal period, around the 14th century, weaving brocades with intricate designs using gold and silver threads became the specialty of Banaras.
