Tussar Silk, also known as 'Kosa Silk’ in Sanskrit, Tusser is a kind of silk produced by silk worms growing in the wild. These non domesticated silkworms breed on local trees and unlike the domesticated mulberry eating silkworm not mulberry trees. The silk extracted from the wold growing worm or cocoons has a rich, raw texture and a natural deep gold colour. It is also a cooler, more breathable fabric. The fabric is not smooth like mulberry or katan silk but has slubs and several irregularities that are visible.
Kadhwa stands for 'kadha hua' or 'embroidered'. In Kadhwa weaving, each motif is woven separately as opposed to other Banarasi techniques. Often two weavers weave a kadhwa saree. One weaver is engaged in weaving the cloth or the body of the saree and the second helps in carving out or embroidering each motif using a wooden spool or Tilli as it’s called in Banaras. Using this technique, many different motifs of different sizes, colours and textures can be woven on the same sari, which is quite difficult to do otherwise. A kadhwa saree typically will take a minimum of 12-14 days to complete and go up to 8-9 months also depending on the intricacy of the design. The backside of a kadhwa saree is clean and has almost negligible or zero float or loose threads.
Handwoven sarees from banaras having small distinct motifs spread all over are known as bootidar sarees. The most commonly used bootis are Angoor Bel, Gojar Bel (mostly used in borders), Lattar Bel, Khulta Bel, Baluchar Bel, Latiffa Bootii, Mehrab Bel, Kalma Booti, Patti Booti, Mehrab Jaal, Baluchar Boota, etc. Banarasi sarees having small separate motifs all over the saree are referred to as Bootidar.
