Murshidabad Silk Sarees
Posted on July 16 2022
The story of Murshidabad silk weaving originated in the 18th century when the then Nawab of Bengal, Nawab Murshidkuli Khan, shifted his capital from Dhaka to this place beside Bhagirathi river and named it Murshidabad after his own name. He brought with him the art of Baluchari weaving, which depicted various scenes about the Nawab and his reign. Later due to a flood the trade route was destroyed and the weaving was shifted to Bishnupur.
Murshidabad silk is made from fine mulberry silk. A silk saree takes 5-7 days of weaving to be made into a six yard drape.
Today, Murshidabad continues to home to some of the finest and most sought after silk weaving clusters in the state. The silk sarees from Murshidabad are very fine, light-weight and easy to drape. They are adorned with a variety of printed designs.
