Baluchari sarees are traditional handwoven silk sarees known for their intricate motifs, usually depicting mythological scenes. The revival of Baluchari sarees involves efforts to preserve and promote this heritage craft, ensuring its continuation in contemporary times. Revival initiatives often focus on design innovation, marketing strategies, and skill development for weavers, contributing to the sustainability of this traditional art form.


Baluchar saris were categorically structured into three segments based on their motifs: the end piece or pallu, the zamin or the saree field, and the border encompassing the sari, including an additional border between the zamin and pallu. The analysis of motifs across these sections revealed a clear division of designs into figurative, floral and faunal, as well as geometric or decorative elements. Typically, a single saree showcased a harmonious blend of these diverse design elements.

Kalka or the Paisley motifs on the Balucharis are very intricate and beautiful. Normally they were used in singles but at later stages it increased to six or seven.
