Baluchar is a small village in the district of West Bengal. The artistic designs of Baluchari Saree mostly depict mythological stories similar to that commonly found on the temples of Bishnupur and Bankura of West Bengal. Baluchari sarees are known as land mark of handloom weaving of silk sarees. Some of the designs are also inspired by Ramayana and Mahabharata. So guys, show our tribal art culture to others by wearing Baluchari sarees.

Baluchari Saree is mainly produced in Murshidabad. It takes around a week or more to produce this saree.

I am having a Baluchari Saree. These sarees are very heavy and should be handled very delicately as the saree is full of hand-works. It is basically a party wear.

Ornate jewelry in the form of neckpieces and earrings complement Baluchari Saree well.
