What after all is Brocade?

Brocade, in textiles, is a woven fabric having a raised floral or figured design that is introduced during the weaving process, usually by means of a Jacquard attachment. The design, appearing only on the fabric face, is usually made in a satin or twill weave.

Brocade fabrics mainly consist of solid or multi-colored silk threads, often times combined with gold or silver metallic threads. A brocade is woven by adding a supplementary weft to the weave, creating the illusion that sections have been embossed into the fabric, or embroidered on top of it.

Brocade fabric sarees online have a complex weaving pattern, which is done by twisting and transfixing pattern threads between a warp. Interestingly, this weave uses expensive threads like gold, silver silk and even cotton. When threads are woven into six yards of cloth, the magic it creates is known as Brocade fabric sarees.

The Banarasi silk saree is a rich traditional offering and the nation’s pride. The brocade is woven on a draw loom through a special technique involving a supplementary weft. This ornamental addition through the revolutionary special arrangement known as ‘jacquard’ has expanded the horizons of pattern making on fabrics.

Four to five centuries have passed and this tradition of fine weaving has neither dimmed nor lost lustre. In fact the Banarasi Silk Saree has continued to remain as exceptional and finely sought as before. Over the years additions and introductions within the weave have never seemed out of place. Despite being woven in traditional style, the fusion elements have seamlessly merged to become a part of its rich and dazzling heritage.


The decorative Zari

Zardozi is metal embroidery done on fabrics to enhance their appeal. In earlier times, especially in the Mughal period and much later, when it was easily available, gold or silver threads were used. Today, with prohibitive costs and limited availability, it is done with a combination of copper wire coated with gold or silver colour and a silk thread. It is indeed a test of skill and patience, where the satisfaction of completing a design flawlessly is the reward for this effort. Zardozi has been used on fabrics since long but the heightened or accentuated effect is most visible on a saree, since it has a big canvas to display.


The Banarasi saree has long since been acknowledged as a fabric that evokes enthusiasm, curiosity, amazement and a host of similar emotions on its arrival. One of the costliest versions is this recent range of rich Brocade saree. Every time a new avatar arrives it is welcomed enormously by the market.  This range too could get its ovation and maybe a standing one at that, for what it offers by way of allure and grandeur is probably the most unexpected but has been hugely applauded.
