She loved all things red, red bangles, her sister’s red lehenga, the red saree her motherwore for her wedding, her daadi’s red jhumkas, papa’s red tie. All her growing up years, she wove stories of festivals, weddings, love, passion and understated authority around red. And when it came to celebrating her own love story - it had to be a red Benarasi. Nothing was more exquisite, striking and filled with love like a classic crimson red.
You can never go wrong with this gorgeous Crimson Red Benarasi. Put on a red bindi, handful of gajra and just like that, you’re ready.

While every effort is made to present the sarees in their natural colours, subtle variations between images and actual colours may be the result of lighting conditions and digital photography, and the colour/screen settings of your digital devices.
Slight irregularities are inherent to the process of creating traditional handwoven fabric. Instead of taking away from the beauty of the saree, they enhance its uniqueness and charm. The irregularities attest to the fact that the saree is a genuine, handcrafted product.
The enduring Kadwa weave is an elaborate and laborious technique that involves hand-weaving each motif separately. This intricate work derives its name from Kadha hua, meaning embroidered. The fabric so created is a result of meticulous handweaving that takes longer time on the handloom, but makes a more robust pattern, which stands out on the fabric.
The painstaking Kadwa technique is used to incorporate motifs of a variety of shapes and sizes, which is not found in any other Benarasi technique such as Phekwa or Cutwork. In such sarees, there are no loose threads at the back of the fabric and hence, no cutting is required. Kadhua produces beautiful sarees which are a labour of love, attention to detail and the timelessness of the holy city of Benaras.
