Baluchari Sarees are the pride & trademark of Bengal in East India. One can recognize a Baluchari Sari from other Sarees by their unique pictorial designs depicting Indian mythological scenes on its border. Baluchari Sarees have a royal touch of their own,   making them extremely unique in nature. These Sarees have derived their name from a small village in Murshidabad known as Baluchara.

The main attraction of this Saree lies in its borders wherein one can see repeated patterns of sun, moon, stars, and Indian mythological scenes from the epics Ramayana, Mahabharata etc. Plus, motifs of natural objects too are very common in these Sarees.
