My great-grandfather was a prosperous merchant when he brought our family to Aurangabad more than 150 years ago. Aurangabad was already a business, textile, and manufacturing center. In a very few years, he established a network of master weavers that, with their apprentices, became one of the most renowned and honored in India.
Their skill and patience enables them to spend days and even weeks at their looms, crafting a single magnificent shawl as a work of art
With ZariZar, this network of craftspeople is entering the globalized world of high fashion, using the most refined silk, Kashmiri wool, and zari threads to weave luxurious patterns for customers with universal tastes.
Scroll down and meet a few of ZariZar’s master craftspeople, whose parents and grandparents have worked with mine for over a century.
