Raw silk sarees and Banarasi sarees are both popular types of traditional sarees in India, each with its own unique features and characteristics.
Raw silk sarees are made from natural, unprocessed silk fibers, giving them a rougher texture and a natural sheen. They are often lightweight and easy to drape and come in a wide range of colors and designs. Raw silk sarees are often adorned with intricate embroidery or hand-painted designs and are popular for both formal and casual occasions.
Banarasi sarees are a type of silk saree that originated in the city of Varanasi, India. They are made from fine silk and are characterized by their intricate gold and silver zari work, often featuring intricate designs such as flowers, leaves, or geometric shapes. Banarasi sarees are known for their luxurious feel, rich colors, and detailed workmanship, and are often worn at weddings and other formal events.
