About Maheshwari Suits Online

The Maheshwari textiles are believed to have started in the 18th century when Rani Ahilyabai Holkar settled a number of expert weavers from Surat, Varanasi and Chennai in Maheshwar. Sarees for the royal household, yellow turban cloths for men in the army, red ones for nobility and traders were woven by these weavers so skillfully that Maheshwar soon became a very important handloom centre.

Initially natural dyes were used in the manufacturing of maheshwari textiles. However, the use of non-fast colours after 1945 led to a severe loss of reputation for Maheshwari textiles in the 1950s. The loss of royal patronage also led to a slight downfall of this craft. This is evident by the fact that till 1970s, there were pure cotton Maheshwaris. However, cotton was completely replaced by silk in the warp in 1970s due to more care required in case of cotton when leasing the warp threads.

Due to the cotton yarn in the weft, these maheshwari salwar suits have a light fabric and are comfortable to wear in any season. The silk touch provides a shiny lustre to these Maheshwari salwar suits. Maheshwari suits are known for checks and stripes in the body, brilliant geometrical motifs, use of zari in the exquisite floral borders. The body of the salwar is covered with all over buttis. The designs used in Maheshwari suits, inspired by the engravings on the fort walls, include the ‘Mat’ pattern, ‘Chameli flower’ pattern, ‘Brick’ pattern and the ‘diamond’ pattern. Today, chemical dyes along with the natural dyes are also in use.

The Maheshwari suits are famous in northern and southern parts of India because of its legendary royal style print, comfort, style, fineness and sophistication. But some of the other reasons that make Maheshwari suits the choice of women is that the fabric used is the finest fabric of cotton selected by weavers.
