Did you ever wonder what type of saree does every Maharashtrian bride done on her wedding day with peacock and lotus motifs? That’s a Paithani saree! Known as the ‘Queen of Silks’, this stunning handloom saree originated from Paithan in Aurangabad (that’s how it gets its name!) and dates back to the 2nd century BC. Paithani sarees were once upon a time woven from silk threads that came from China and locally made zari that came from real gold and silver thread. While some of them are still made from stunning gold zari, some are made with alternate handloom fabrics. This saree is the key feature of any Maharashtrain bride’s wedding trousseau, be in a nine yard saree or a five yards one. If you are looking to pick up an authentic paithani saree for your wedding or even as a guest, these are the stores and labels in Maharashtra that you can pick them up from!
