Product Highlights

  • Shikargah is a breathtakingly beautiful piece of pure art on silk.
  • Woven only by about five percent of the weavers in Benaras, this is an extremely rare weave.
  • It is made in the kadhua, meenakari and kimkhwab techniques on the jaala looms in Banaras
  • The traditional designs feature animal & bird motifs and are the benarasi weavers’ tribute to ‘shikar’, the royal hunting hobbies of the kings in medieval times.
  • The striking gemstone inspired colors amalgamated with the traditional elements of design define this striking six-yard beauty.
  • A Shikargah saree requires unprecedented skill and investment of time, with two weavers working simultaneously to create a piece.
  • The saree deserves a place in a vintage saree collector's wardrobe
We are a handful of weavers in Banaras who have picked the complex art of Shikargah from our ancestors and have a rich vocabulary of motifs as an inheritance. Over decades of training, we have gained the knowledge of how exactly these motifs would be translated into the warp and weft through the insertion of extra patterning threads in silk or zari, simultaneously being aware of the wearer’s body and the cultural requirements of modesty, all the while bringing freshness into a traditional theme without being tediously repetitive.
