The essence of this saree lies in the weave. A connoisseur of Indian fashion would know the highly characteristic Banarasi weave at a single glance. The same is superimposed on the field of this saree in the form of bitone blooms on delicate vines. A more complex weave is to be found along the border - paisley-shaped leaves and denser, more precisely finished vines. The endpiece is the most signature aspect of this saree, with matching motifs done on a distinctive paler foundation.
