Every Indian woman's wardrobe has a Banarasi
silk saree. The magnificent
embroidery, the richness of the silk material, and the finely woven brocade
makes this six-yard piece of cloth irresistible.
Banaras is one of the leading silk weaving centres in India. Amru silk, Jamvar, Navarangi, Jamdani etc. are the types of Banaras Saris, in which Amru Silk brocades with a heavy pallu of flowering bushes or the flowering mango pattern are very famous. However, the eternal truth is that every beautiful thing has its expiry date. And, same is the case with Banarasi silk sarees.
But, fear not. Weaverstory.com shares some essential steps that should be kept in mind to maintain the timeless elegance of Banarasi silk.
- Make sure that when you store these sarees, they are wrapped carefully in muslin and cotton cloth. The delicacy of cotton or muslin shears will help preserve the embroidery on Banarasi sarees better.
- It is also important to remember that these sarees are stored separately. Stacking it among sarees of other material can damage the silk texture.
- Keep in mind not to use metal hangers for the sarees. Metal hangers are
prone to corrode and this can ruin the elegance and shine of the Banrasai silk
- For similar reasons, you must iron the saree at low heat and should always place a cotton cloth under the saree while ironing.
