Origin and History of Paithani saree-
  • The term Paithani comes from the name of the
    Paithan town in the city of Aurangabad. Paithan
    town is situated in the Maharashtra region of
    India. Paithani sarees have originated during the
    Satvahana Dynasty almost 2000 years ago at around
    200 BCE by the banks of the divine Godavari river
    which later progressed throughout the Deccan
    region. Many stories go ear to ear about the
    making of the saris with fine threads of gold and
    silver during the era of the primeval period. 

Paithani saree rose to popularity in very less
time due to its rich look, color, texture and
intricate designs. But it reached its peak mainly
during the time of the Mughals. During the Mughal
period, the emperors and queens preferred wearing
paithani saris made of gold and silver threads.
But unfortunately, with the beginning of British
rule and the Industrial Revolution, there was a
big decline in the weaving industry that was the
core of the making of paithani sarees. But, the
crafts were not entirely lost until in the 17th
century the Peshwas decided to actively promote
craftsmanship. It is since then that the fabric
again got its life back. 
Among all other Indian saree, Paithani is
regarded as the best because of its unique
designs and patterns. They are weaved in six and
nine yards, unlike any other saree. They also
specialize in the feature of the same looking
sides. The pallu and the border also look the
same. It is also noteworthy that these saris do
not lose their shine and lustre till ages even
after washing them for many years. Also, it is
important to know that Paithanis never wear out
at the folds, unlike many other silk sarees. The
most common, prominent and interesting designs
that feature in the pallu and borders are namely
the lotus, peacock, flowers, fan, coconut,
bangle, mango, parrot, and other musical
