Zari sarees are make of yarn that are shiny, metallic thread, that is made to be woven into various motifs and patterns. The thread can be of gold, silver or even metalized polyester film. This thread is woven into fabrics, primarily made of silk to create intricate patterns.
Today, in most fabrics, zari is not made of real gold and silver, but has cotton or polyester yarn at its core, wrapped by golden/silver metallic yarn. Nowadays, it can broadly be divided into three types. Real zari, imitation zari, and metallic zari. In ancient times, when precious metals were cheaply and easily available, only real zari threads were produced and used in luxury clothing.
Metallic zari is a modernized version of zari and it replaces traditional metals like gold, silver and copper. It is resistant, durable and light in weight. It is non-tarnishing and maintains its lustre for a considerable period of time.
Zari is of many types, including zardozi, Marori and Gota work, Kataoki Bel, and others. It is one of the most commonly used design approaches and is used to produce highly versatile ethnic wear pieces. The art of zari making has been inherited from father to son for many centuries.
