Maheshwari Sarees

    The maheshwari cotton-silk sarees crafted by the artisan clusters in the town of Maheshwar are handwoven with a technique that has been preserved by the community since the 5th century AD. Developed under the patronage of the Maratha queen Devi Ahilya Bai Holkar, the sarees have a royal grace! One can see the influence of maheshwar architecture in its simple and elegant designs and the result in a truly timeless weave.
