The qualities of natural sheen, affinity for dyes, vibrancy of colours, high absorbability, lightness in weight, resilience and excellent drape have combined to make silk irresistible in its appeal across the world for a number of centuries. Banarasi Silk Products are an integral part of the Indian sartorial landscape. The book studies the industry starting from the historical perspective to the problems and probable solutions that may bring back the glory of the industry.
