Stand Out From The Crowd With Craftsvilla Brocade Sarees:-
Brocade is one of the many cultural legacies left behind by Indian Mughal Emperors. Under the patronage of Akbar, who was a lover of handicrafts, the weaving of brocade fabric reached glorious heights and is still known for their lustre and unique weaving patterns. Traditionally, brocade is known for its prominent Persian influence in the form of motifs and designs. This is the result of the vigorous patronage received by Persian craftsmen in Akbar’s court.

The style of embroidery was so popular in India even after the decline of the Mughal Empire that brocade sarees and attires have a mention in Vedic Literature. During Akbar’s rule, the art of Brocade became popular throughout Gujarat and nearby areas such as Benaras which was highly populated by Muslim weavers.
