    Maheshwari Sarees & Fabric

    by RakeshKapadnis Written Jan 25, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    What to buy: Maheshwari Sarees were introduced into Maheshwar 250 years ago by Rani Ahilyabai, and are renowned throughout India for their unique weave. Woven mostly in cotton, the typical Maheshwari saree has a plain body and sometimes stripes or checks in several variations. The mat bordered designs have a wide range in leaf and floral patterns. The pallav is particularly distinctive with 5 stripes, 3 coloured and 2 white alternating, running along its width. Maheshwari has a reversible border, known as bugdi.
    There are many shops in Maheshwar which sell these sarees & fabrics. The present King Richard has reinvented this art & created his own brand Rehwa Srees. You can see the unit while doing palace tour. But the Rehwa brand is expensive as compared to the market rates.
