Story Behind the Art:
These sari fabric for these table cloths is made by artisans in Banaras. One of the oldest cities in history, Banaras is steeped deeply in myth and has a rich textile heritage. The weaver community uses power-looms to make sari's and only 3 sari's are produced per day per power loom. The entire family is usually involved in the sari making process. The weavers, who often spend their lives bringing alive delicate designs, measure their existence in meters of silk, inch by inch-the sari and all it symbolizes is the fabric of their life.These traditions of using the women in the family-who are always only involved in the first aspect of the sari making-still continues.
