Wat je gaat doen

We will walk through the weavers district of Varanasi and learn about the life of the weavers and the process of hand weaving of the famous silk brocades and Banarasi sari.
I will take you walking around through the weavers community where you visit some of the private residence of the weavers, interact with them and learn the art.
Varanasi or Banaras has always been a renowned as a specialist silk weaving centre, using gold and silver threads to create its unique warp and weft. One of the most sought after luxuries, its lush saris have been desired by several generations. Today, the city's weaving tradition is being threatened by counterfeit fabric, Chinese silks, modern power looms and changing fashion preferences.

Kunal is a wonderful storyteller who weaves in Benaras's magical history into an unforgettable experience visiting the iconic weavers of Benaras. He is energetic, involved and very friendly, with a rapport and kindness shared with this now almost invisible community. Highly highly recommended!

I really enjoyed the weavers tour. We visited the houses of several weavers where to looms are setup. Kunal was friendly with all the weavers and was knowledgeable about the process. I would not have been able to visit the places Kunal brought me on my own. It was an amazing experience! Thank Kunal! I highly recommend this tour.
