The Balucheri saree is made with fine silk. It is characterized by a really long pallu which is sometimes longer than a metre. The saree’s embellished pallu and borders use the complex jacquard weave similar to the Benarasi weave, except that this saree does not use any gold thread or ‘zari’.
Exactly, my initial comment was about a DM who just flat said no to reasonable character choices because they we part of his perfect story.
