India is a large country and therefore the speciality of each region was developed based on the geographical location, climatic conditions and cultural influences. The Northern India went through major influence of the Persian, Mughal ideas. The weavers were highly skilled producing intricate and delicate textiles, sometimes with the use of complicated looms.


The art of dyeing the thread for weaving & the woven fabric was well developed. Fast, rich colours were used from early days. Being handmade, each fabric could be unique and customised. That is why each queen added her touch to the weave and today we have handloom sarees as a result of all our indulgent royalty. There was also a time when these sarees were so expensive that only the rich royals could buy them and the common Indian women wore sarees according to their class and status. With special reference to diversity of shimmering and lustrous nature of a brocade Benarasi and the translucence of a lehariya was executed with deft adroitness. The wonder of a Benarasi silk saree continues to fascinate us. Shatika is an online handloom sarees portal. We have had amazing response and we are proud to be one!
