India has a rich tradition of sarees. Almost every Indian state has a weaving tradition and a signature saree weaving style of its own. If Odisha has its Sambalpuri Ikat, Maharashtra can boast of its Paithani sarees, Gujarat is rightfully proud of its Patola sarees and world knows of Tamil Nadu's Kanjeevaram sarees, Uttar Pradesh's Varanasi (previously Banaras) town is famous for its saree - the Banarasi saree.

In many Indian weddings, a Banarasi saree is a must-have garment in a bride's trousseau collection. One of the finest silk sarees from India, they are known for their gold and silver brocade or zari work. This is one saree that every Indian woman must have in her saree collection.
