Women across India and Bangladesh widely wear the Baluchari saree. It originated in Bengal and is known for depicting mythological scenes on the saree pallu. It is mainly produced in Murshidabad and started in a small village called Baluchari from where it got its name. Producing one saree takes approximately one week or more. The silk yarn used in the weaving of the baluchari silk saree is not twisted and therefore has a soft, heavy texture. Balucharis have threads in one to two colors along with attractive meenakari work whereas,
gorgeous Balucharis woven with gold-colored threads sometimes silver are called Swarnacharis.
