A rare Banarasi saree in lovely brown linen with colourful meenakari floral vines woven using the kadwa technique. The elaborate and laborious Kadwa technique is used to incorporate motifs. In Kadwa weaving, each motif is woven separately as opposed to other Banarasi handloom sarees (also known as "phekwa" or cutwork sarees). In Kadwa sarees, there are no loose threads at the back of the fabric and hence, no cutting is required. Using this technique, many different motifs of different sizes, colours and textures can be woven on the same sari, which is quite difficult to do otherwise. While this takes longer on the handloom, it makes a more robust pattern, which stands out on the fabric. The border and pallu are self silver zari kaddi. This beauty comes with a self silver zari brown blouse.
