How are Paithani sarees made?

The art of making Paithani silk sarees originated in the Paithan town in the state of Maharashtra, India. Varieties of designs and patterns are available in these sarees, however, the characteristic features are an oblique square design on the border and plain or spotted designs in the main body. Paithani sarees either come in single colors or Kaleidoscopic colors. They are made of silk and zari. The tradition of making Paithani sarees is many centuries old and this art is continued by skilled craftsmen. The most commonly found motifs found in these sarees are lotus, peacock, flowering vines, swan, parrot, geometrical patterns, etc. Paithani sarees are known for their unique weaving technique. The process of crafting these sarees requires great skills because it is all done by hand. Let us look at the various steps involved in the process mentioned below:

1.Raw Silk threads are dyed

The main raw material used for making a Paithani saree is Mulberry silk which is brought from Bangalore. The silk threads are dipped in hot salt water for about 15 minutes. They are then transferred to cold water using a long rod to remove the excess of impurities. Once they have cleaned, a dye bath is prepared as per the requirement of the color(s). The threads are then again washed 2-3 times to make them more lustrous.

2. Threads are loaded to the loom

Once the silk threads are dyed, they are transferred to the reels to separate each thread. Next, each thread is loaded to a simple pit or throw shuttle frame loom.

3. Weaving is carried out

Paithani silk sarees are woven with the Tapestry technique in which the weft yarn of small lengths is returned being interlaced or interlocked with the threads of different weft colors as per the required designs. This is the most time-consuming step and is done very carefully. It usually takes around 1.5 years to complete weaving.
