Golden and black border on a striking maroon shade, this Tanchoi silk saree from Banaras is one of those clothing pieces whose story is as interesting as its designs. The beautiful and soft Tanchoi silk which has become one of the most popular fabrics in traditional Indian women’s wear, according to a legend, travelled from China to India in the 19th century, thanks to three Gujrati weaver brothers. After learning the art of this brocade, the brothers came back and named the craft after themselves, Tan (Gujrati Tran, meaning three), and their Chinese master Choi. Once the production of Tanchoi silk started, this smooth fabric never looked back. This maroon-black Tanchoi saree appears symmetrically gorgeous due to its Herringbone weave. The border and the endpiece are magnificently adorned with the traditional Indian booti work- done by using fine gold threads by the expert weavers of Banaras.
