Beautiful 5 Traditional sarees of West Bengal-

1-   Tussar Silk Saree- Tussar is produced in numerous areas in India, more than 40% of it is produced in the Malda district of West Bengal. Tussar silk, a more textured one than the “cultured” mulberry silk, aids in the making of numerous types of saris in Bengal.

2- Baluchari Saris- Baluchuri Sari Bengali is a type of sari, a garment worn by women across India and Bangladesh. This particular type of sari originated in Bengal and is known for depictions of mythological scenes on the pallu of the sari. It was mainly produced in Murshidabad but presently Bishnupur and its surrounding places of West Bengal is the only place where authentic Baluchuri sarees are produced.

3-   Murshidabad Silk Saris- The history of silk saris in Murshidabad dates back to the 18th century when the East India Company set up two factories to produce silk. The silk manufactured here is referred to as pure silk since it’s totally handloom sans the addition of any other chemical to enhance its shine or durability or anything else. It’s also very light and mostly comes in vibrant colors and myriad designs: from floral to stripes to geometrical and quirky pattern.

4-  Dhakai Jamdani- This saree is one of the favorite saris of Bengals in all occasions—be it wedding parties, any Puja and even college farewells. The sari is typically transparent and is woven with cotton and resham-threads. If you want to go for a traditional look yet keep in terms with the modern times, we advise you to go for this sari.

5-  Taant sari- Tant saree is a traditional Bengali saree and usually used by Bengali women. It is traditionally made by the weavers from all over West Bengal and Bangladesh but typically few places like Murshidabad, Nadia, Hooghly of West Bengal and Dhaka, Tangail of Bangladesh are famous for tant saree weaving.These saris bear different pattern and motifs with the floral, “buti” and “gamcha” designs dominating the scene.
