Despite being known as stunning silk sarees, banarasi silk sarees are really made of a variety of fabrics and patterns. The Mughal culture serves as the inspiration for the patterns of banarasi silk saree. The patterns of blossoms and motifs, known as Kalga or Bel, are woven by the craftsmen using golden and silver Zaris. A banarasi saree piece can take anything from fifteen days to six months to complete due to the meticulous craftsmanship. This banarsi saree is known as nauvari saree too which, in Maharashtra is also known by the names lugade, kashta, sakacha, etc. This nine-yard silk saree, which is often worn by Maharashtrian ladies, was originally known as the brahmin nuavari saree and is currently best known as Bajirao Mastani’s Pinga dance saree.
Let’s look at the process of draping this traditional Indian saree in detail.
How to drape the pinga saree?
You will easily get a banarsee silk sari online with golden borders to drape a saree like in the pinga song.
Start by donning the tights and blouse before wrapping the saree. First, make pleats and pin your pallu starting at a distance of roughly one metre. Now you must bring your drape from the rear to the front and knot it around your waist.
Drape it from the left to the rear while holding the pallu and bringing it to the front. Place a pin on your left shoulder now. Wrap the front draping border and slip it in at the waist to make modifications.
To produce the dhoti look, pull the drape back and bring the central portion to the front. The top two pleats should be set aside to make the bottom skirt’s pleats. Hold all of the pleats and tuck them in at the waistline after organising them all. Use the waistline border to conceal the pleated bundles.
The leftover saree is to be slipped into the waistband after the saree that was carried from behind to front to construct the dhoti, covered the kela. Pull out the inner border over your left leg to form a broad cowl now. Put a beetle nut on the saree’s border, secure it with an elastic band, and push it under the left portion of the pleat. You may now wear the pinga dance saree after adjusting the shoulder pleats.
