The quintessential saree has remained one of the most favourite canvasses for Indian weavers. Craftsmen from all over the country have found an unadulterated freedom of expression in this nine yards of fabric, and perhaps this is why India is home to some of the finest handloom fabric traditions since time immemorial. One such beautiful weave, the Maheshwari saree, comes from Maheshwar, a city in Khargone district of Madhya Pradesh. With its rich history, the town falls right in line with its famed Maheshwari Cotton Silk Saree.
Legend has it that Rani Ahilya Bai Holkar employed a special team of craftsmen from Surat and Malwa to design an exclusive nine yard saree that could be gifted to her relatives and guests who visited the palace. With the first saree conceived and designed by Her Highness herself, Maheshwari sarees went on to become a huge hit in the royal and aristocratic circle. Following this, the production of Maheshwari sarees caught up, and these graceful sarees soon started becoming popular with women of all ages. Today, this beautiful textile is one of the best sellers in both national and international markets!
