Weaving has been popular in India, since time immemorial. And Baluchari is among the royal arts of weaving, which is famous for the portrayal of royal lifestyle and trends. In the previous times, intricate designs of traditional epics were woven on the borders of these sarees. The present trend of fashion has given a chance to various innovations, such as pleasure boat with love birds, animal figurines, traditional marriage or other customary practices and kalka motifs. Generally, these motifs are woven diagonally to make them look extraordinary.
The art of Baluchari weaving came from Baluchar, a place near Murshidabad. Its best feature is that of using human brocade figures for decorating pallu and borders. What makes this weaving style more elegant is the use of fine quality silk and silver zari work. Generally, in this pattern, the ground colors are beige, red, blue and pink with contrast colored borders. The entire masterpiece of Baluchari work enables the wearer to adorn a touch of grace and stands out of crown for being exclusive.
