When it comes to sarees, the history of Indian sarees dates back to the Hindu mythology of Ramayana in the 1000 to 300 B.C. and in the Buddhist Scriptures in the first millennium. Banarasi silk sarees was then introduced to India by the Mughal Empire with its intricate weaving and designing craftsmanship.
The saree today has a mixture of two different cultures, the Mughals and Indian. In the olden days, silk for this saree was imported from China; nowadays the silk is sourced from the Southern parts of India.
