Mint & Purple Pure Katan Silk Tissue Banarasi Saree
I am totally in love with this Pure Katan Silk Tissue Banarasi saree. The color combination is unique and the Kadiyal Tilfi border and all-over buti’s are mind-blowingly beautiful. This is my first pure Banarasi saree and definitely won’t be the last. Pure Katan Silk Banarasi Sarees are woven from pure silk yarn with precise attention to detail by talented artisan weavers, making them one-of-a-kind! The pure Katan sarees are the most expensive Banarasi sarees.
The saree wasn’t too heavy and too lightweight, it was in between. Given my 5/10 draping skills, I was able to easily drape and maneuver in it. I paired the saree with evergreen and no-brainer temple jewelry, they go well with any saree and ups the grand factor! The quilted shoulder bag keeps the outfit classy and chic.

I will be sharing one or more saree outfit posts every month. This is my humble effort to learn, embrace and share about the Handlooms weaves of India.
A little bit about Katan Kadiyal Banarasi Saree
Banarasi silk sarees are traditionally made at Varanasi or Benaras, the holy city of India in the state of Uttar Pradesh. Banarasi sarees are differentiated based on the fabric and different designs. They add a sense of royalty and exhibit grace and classiness!
Banarasi silk is called Katan. Katan is a plain-woven fabric with pure silk threads. It consists of two threads twisted together and is mostly used for the warp of light fabrics.
Kadiyal is a technique that helps achieve a border in a sharply contrasting color to the body of the saree. This required careful dyeing and setting of the wrap in different colors and multiple changes in the weft shuttle while weaving. These are time-honored pieces that celebrate our rich, vivid heritage! source- tilfi.com
