बनारसी साडी/ Benarsi saree

Enough of cheap Chinese imitations. The Benarsi saree, possibly the most important component of a traditional Indian wedding, has been granted the Geographical Indication or GI certificate by the Indian government. Only saris produced in Varanasi, Azamgarh, Chandauli, Jaunpur, Mirzapur and Sant Ravi Dass Nagar (Bhadohi) -all in Uttar Pradesh-will be considered Benarsi saris. This also covers Jamdani, Jangla, Jamawar Tanchoi, Tissue, cut work, butidar and silk embroidery saris.
