Day 3

At that time silk and zari threads were used. Planting was used in karna and banana in the taana, which resulted in garments becoming very soft and gaffard. In the past, saris were made from the map, jala. After that, the use of Dabies and Junkards can be considered that they can be removed from the tradition and now it can be considered as a power-loom. Most craftsmen who make Banarasi sarees are Muslims - Ansari. Poet Kabir was also weavers. The buyers of this sari are people of Gujarati, Marwari, Rajput and responsible houses. Since ancient times, the use of Banarasi saris was used especially by the bride and bridegroom in the marriage ceremonies and till date the tradition has been going on, but the weavers who are worn by these weavers are very poor. In today's era, why their work is not getting their money on time, they are running away from this work and they have to raise the bread on the other side of the city. The education of their children, the right to eat food and daily needs, our society will have to take care of, and the weaving practice of these weavers will have to save more art.
