bengal habdloom

This saree is known as Bengal Handloom. It is usually used by Bengali
women and traditionally formed in the Bengal territory including Bangladesh. Tant, Baluchuri, Jamdani, Muslin, Tant jamdani, Tussar, Binshnupur Katan Silk, etc belong to this class. These sarees are rich in hot and humid weather. These types of sarees come with artistic motifs, colorful designs. It is also characterized by a thick border.

The saree I draped is not purely a Bengal handloom. Because nowadays, pure cotton is not being used and there are also some machines work in it. There are some mixing with the cotton. I bought this saree from my facebook group member. The base color of the saree is white and holds big borders on both sides. In the border,  you can find jute work that is woven into the machine. The border carries floral designs. The body has the minakari buta designs. The overall quality of the saree is good because it is comfortable and perfect in this warm-climate.
