Let us find out all about the Rangkat style of sarees and dress materials.

What is Rangkat?

Rangkat is an old weaving technique of Banaras. It is a handloom technique that is on the verge of disappearance. There are only a few weavers who weave a true Rangkat silk saree. This technique is time-consuming and distinct and can be identified through the sharp changes in the base colors of the saree fabric. Rangkat weaving needs several changes in the warp and weft for producing a multicolored fabric.

Rangkat saree is known for the distinct crossover pattern of yarns with color blocking in stripes. The color-blocking stripe pattern lends the name ‘Rangkat’ to the sarees. This type of weaving is intricate and is a different version of Kadiyal weaving. Rangkat saree boasts floral or geometric motifs and is quite an elaborate craftsmanship.

Wearing the Rangkat saree

This elegant classic piece sports zari work as well. Since the saree is already colorful, it needs minimal jewelry. If you wish to drape a Rangkat silk saree perfectly, here are some tips:

  • It is always recommended to wear shapewear especially when you are wearing a heavy saree like a Banarasi saree. Rangkat Banarasi saree can be lightweight or heavy depending on the work. So, if the saree is heavy, then opt for the shapewear.

  • Get a blouse stitched as per the latest trend and ensure that it fits you right. A well-stitched blouse enhances the overall look of the wearer.

  • Never fold or store the saree too tight, especially the silk sarees. This creates creases that affect the final look of wearing.
