The day I was handed down a pure Banarasi saree by my mother, I knew that it was special. It was one of my first handloom weaves, and I was in complete awe of the karigari, the design, and the elegance of it. That was the moment I realised that this needs to be preserved for it to reach the next generation. Even they must know our rich textile legacy and get to adorn these classics. That is when I began working towards it….Rajyalakshmi Sarees is a milestone on this path, but the goal is much bigger.
- Rajyalakshmi Gubba, Founder
At Rajyalakshmi, our goal is to nurture, preserve and offer a rich textile experience to you. Each drape at our stores embodies the traditional Banarasi spirit that is reflected in every thread put together by our skilled artisans.
In times when power looms are trying to dominate the textile market, we work towards encouraging the local weaver community and giving them a platform to showcase their skills and respectfully earn a livelihood. From the fabric, and weaving technique, to the motifs, every detail is carefully looked into and handwoven to perfection. But, you know where the real beauty lies? In a handloom Banarasi saree, it is not the synchronicity of the motifs and design, but the rawness of handwoven zari that adds more shine to your drape. With two landmark stores in Hyderabad and Bengaluru, we look forward to continuing this journey, taking along as many Banarasi handloom lovers and making a dierence with ultimate grace.
