Integrated into their tradition since pre Bangladesh days when it was part of Bengal in India, weaving of most varieties of Bengal sarees are amongst the most extensive and labour intensive weaves. It is no wonder then that they are amongst the most distinctly comfortable and good looking sarees in the world.
Traditional flower bootis or quirky geometric patterns, crisp, light and transparent Bengal tant sarees in cotton fabric not only look ethereal with solid embossed motifs but they feel good especially in hot and humid weather. The other variety of cotton sarees from Bengal are the famous Jamdani sarees.
