Bengal has always been the epicenter of one of the finest techniques and patterns of weaving. It is famous not only in Bengal, but it has also gained worldwide recognition. Weaves of Bengal that is called Bengal Handloom includes both Bangladesh (East Bengal) and West Bengal (India).
I grew up in a traditional Bengali family. So from my childhood, I am used to with bengal handloom sarees. Bengal sarees have so much variety that it is tough to distinguish among them. They often look similar from a distance. But a true Bengali woman can recognize the saree at first sight with the help of patterns, designs, and work.
