Originating from the Paithan town in Maharashtra’s Aurangabad district, Paithani Sarees are made from the finest silk and are woven by hand. At Mirraw.com, you can find a rich collection of original Paithani Silk Sarees with their inventive patterns and the characteristic broad borders that make them exclusive. Available at a reasonable price range, you will hardly find these handcrafted sarees at such an affordable price anywhere else.
We offer you a wide range of Paithani Silk Sarees with peacock designs, kaleidoscope-colored designs and other designs that are more popular among women who love to wear these sarees for their traditional values. The unique weaving technique where threads of one color are weaved lengthwise and threads of another color are weaved breadthwise gives a unique kaleidoscopic appearance to these sarees. In our collection, you can discover unique Paithani Sarees that are delicately hand woven by Indian artisans who have deep roots in the traditions of making Paithani Silk Sarees.
Paithani weaving characterizes the sophisticated use of silk and gold (zari). The original paithani saree used to feature a cotton base in the body of the fabric, whereas the borders and weft designs featured the silk fabric. However, in the present day Paithani Silk Sarees, you will not find any trace of the cotton material. We also have Paithani Silk Sarees that are made from 100% handmade Paithani silk and that will offer you a luxury and elegance of wearing an original silk saree that has been woven and designed meticulously.
In Paithani Sarees, weavers generally use three types of silk threads. These are Charkha, Ciddle-Gatta and China Silk. Charkha threads are lusterless and are widely used, whereas Ciddle-Gatta is fine quality silk with shiny and smooth threads. The China Silk is the most expensive type of thread that is used in the Paithani Silk Sarees. We have all the varieties and you can find the finest quality Paithani Silk Sarees with us at unbelievable prices. You can find sarees with delicately designed decorative motifs, such as lotus motifs, hans motifs, peacock motifs, tota-maina motifs, and lots more.

Paithani Silk Sarees are popular among women to wear in wedding ceremonies and other traditional occasions.
