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
At the heart of the Banarasi brocade is the naqsha, loosely translated as plan, model or pattern and we weavers who plan it are called naqshaband. In more modern terms, the naqsha is the design and the naqshaband, the designer. As shikargah is a highly skilled art with very minute and intricate patterns, only a handful of us who know the trade are involved in its making. Complete information is required in rendering a shikargah pattern on the loom and creating a brocade fabric. An incorrectly rendered naqsha results in a misshapen woven motif, appearing inappropriately on the finished fabric, leading to wasted material, time, effort and, ultimately, financial loss.
