Paithani Silk

Paithan, the birthplace of the Paithani saree, is a town located near Aurangabad, Maharashtra, on the banks of the beautiful river Godavari. Formerly known as Pratishthan (meaning firmly established), the capital of the Satavahana dynasty, Paithan,was a hub of trade and was one of the few inland towns mentioned in the famous first-century Greek book, the Periplus of the Erythraean Sea, a treatise of trade and navigating in ancient Greece. Historians believe that in the distant past, Romans cherished the golden woven fabric of the region, and imported it in exchange for solid gold of equal weight!

The 'golden fabric of the region', today, still retains its magic. Lyrically woven in silk and gold, you drape 2000 years of history around you when you wear a Paithani.
