Probably custom-made jacquards with Banaras punched cards that became popular in 1920. Yeola was the main centre for such fusion. Paithani sarees, hand-woven, and jacquard-assisted motifs added another dimension of richness to typical coconut border paithanis. A combination of different bases (self wrap x weft) under zari paisley, heavy butti, and silk indicates that the saree was probably made for a higher family or sold at a premium. A similar known saree was priced around Rupees 105.00 in 1933.Occasion/Purpose: Bridal Saree.
