When one thinks about traditional Indian attire then saree is probably the first thing that comes to mind. Sari is primarily a long piece of cloth that is unstitched and usually 6 yards in length and is draped in a particular pattern. India is a land where unity lies in diversity and there are different kinds of saris in India as well that change when you travel from state to state. Bengali sari is one of the most popular ones and their fame is not recent as they have a rich story to tell.
When it comes to Bengali saree, then Baluchari saree and tant saris are the two most popular types that one will come across. The tant saris became quite famous during the period when the Mughals used to reign in India. The British people tried hard to ruin the tant sari business in India but history bears witness to the fact that they did not succeed in their endeavors. The Baluchari saris, on the other hand, got their name from a small village in Bengal by the name of Baluchari and it was in the 18th century that Murshid Quli Khan, who was the nawab of Bengal brought the art of making Baluchari saris from Dhaka.
