Durga Puja: Saptami Special Bengal Silk Saris


Durga Maha Saptami falls just in the middle of the Durga Puja Week. As Saptami comes, Bengalis get a feel of the culture and tradition; hence, we would prefer them to go in traditional attires.

As it is also a day when Bengalis carry on their pandal hoppings, we would prefer light weighted yet traditional saris to be worn. Silk saris are the best option for the day and Bengal itself is a hub of so many kinds of silk fabrics.

Here are the types of silk saris from and around Bengal which you can try on your Durga Saptami Puja celebration.


Tussar Silk

Tussar silk is a kind of silk that is produced in a small town named Malda. There are different kinds of variations that come under Tussar silk. It is mainly heavy but still can be carried with ease.

They are glossy and create a royal effect.


Baluchari Silk

Baluchari silk is one of the most important and preferred subdivisions of Tussar. They are famous for their mythological text prints, Butti and Patta designs. There are floral designs which invade the body of the sari. They are a royal treasure you can possess and can dazzle your Saptami outing.


Murshidabad Silk

Murshidabad silk is one of a kind and known for its extra light texture. They are one of the most royal silk saris of Bengal, referring from the royal Murshidabad background. It has been popular since the British era and prior to that, just Nawabi women had their hands on the Murshidabad silk ensembles.


Bishnupuri Silk

Bishnupur is a small village in the subdivisions of Bankura in Bengal and the place is rich in culture, including the production of a silk genre called Bishnupuri silk. These saris have a smooth and soft texture and are the lightest of all Bengal silks.

They have both traditional and innovative patterns for Bishnupuri silk saris.

Apart from these historical and traditional silk saris of Bengal, there are innovative silk patterns found on mainly Bishnupuri and Murshidabadi sari base.


Madhubani Print

Madhubani is a popular print style, mainly on silk saris, more precisely on Bishnupuri silk sari base. They are colourful and look very classy. This is definitely one of the most beautiful sari collections one can don during Durga Puja.


Nakshi Kantha Embroidery

Nakshi Kantha Embroidery, popularly known as the Kantha embroidery of Bengal, is very elegant and classy to look at. This kind of embroidery is done on different sari bases but on silk, it looks marvellous. We would definitely want you to try the katha embroidered silk saris for your Saptami outing.
