Nagpur Saris of Maharashtra

Craft Revival Trust

The characteristics of the Nagpur sari are the designs that are woven with the Nagpuri wooden dobby in extra warp. The sari is woven on a pit-loom and the raw material used is pure cotton yarn. Designs have their own names and are woven in stripes and checks with fly shuttles, contrasting the finely textured body with richly patterned borders.
