Be the Diva you are with Stunning Traditional Maheshwari Sarees






Maheshwari sarees are lightweight, lustrous drapes made of pure silk and cotton fabric woven with brocade or zari motifs. Checks, floral borders, and stripes appear in the majority of these patterns. Maheshwari sarees were first made in the 18th century at Maheshwar, Madhya Pradesh.


Originally composed of pure silk, these sarees were later combined with cotton to create magnificent sarees, dupattas, and salwar kameez outfits. Traditional Maheshwari sarees are highly sought after sarees with a fascinating history. Queen Rani Ahilya Bai Holkar is said to have commissioned a nine-yard unique saree to be gifted to her family and royal guests from Surat and Malwa. The royal family manufactured heavy work Maheshwari sarees as unique gifts for their guests.


Later, the silk was changed with cotton and made available to other women, yet the saree's elegance and refined appearance were preserved.
