This saree is light and comfortable to wear. The fabric has a matte finish with a wrinkled and creased surface.

The Tussar brocade sarees feature heavy ornamental designs. The ‘pallu‘ (falling edge of the saree) features complex jacquard designs. The overall pattern used in the saree is the classic Bengali motif with a Mughal touch.
