There are four main varieties of Banarasi saree, which include pure silk (Katan), Organza (Kora) with zari and silk; georgette, and according to the design process, they are divided into categories like, Jangla, Tanchoi, Vaskat, Cutwork, and Tissue. Authentic Banarasi weaves can be judged by looking at the reverse side of the saree. The ones done by hand will be heavy on thread work at the back and will look very different from the front. Also, only an original sari would have floated.
Brocade and Zari being the specialty of the city Banaras, the sarees are weaved along with gold or silver Zari threads, the sarees most of them have gold or silver zari threads weaved to the designs. The Banarasi saree tracks or is encouraged by the Mughal designs. The Banarasi sarees came into existence in the course of the Mughal times when Muslim artisans and craftsmen choose Banarasi as the dwelling that unified well with their culture and started weaving silk Banarasi sarees. It is also noted that the weavers were earlier focused on cotton weaving and have switched to silk weaving past the fourteenth century. They also got specialized in brocade weaving. It is a textile in which patterns are created by thrusting the pattern threads (Zari) between the warp. Zari brocade involves the use of gold and silver threads to create a glittering embossed pattern appearance.
