Almost all of the surface area of the inky black foundation of this saree has been layered over with dense gold zari. Rows of paisley-within-a-paisley motifs, alternating with multi-petalled flowers and punctuated by delicate vine- and tendril-patterns, make for a sumptuous work in brocade. The endpiece features even denser embroidery, with sparse betel-leaf motifs which are considered auspicious in a home where a wedding is taking place. The solid gold of the thick border goes well with the jet black of the hem of the endpiece.
