Known for its craftsmanship, the opulence of vividly colorful silk that feels like a luxury is a hand woven by skilled weavers of Banaras, a city in India. This heavy yet soft fabric is so detailed that artisans only make half a meter of fabric a day. The painting is an attempt to capture this exclusivity and royalness imbued by Banarasi Kataan Silk yarns.
