#The Korial: There will be no wardrobe of Bengoli women where you will not find Korial lal paar saree. It is some what similarn to the Garad sari, but with a deeper hue of red and solid colour in it. You will ofent find married women wearing the Korial during Durga Puja and also offering same to Goddess

# Tussar Silks The Tussar Silk is produced in Malda, West Bengal. The Baluchari saree is very textured and cultured made from tussar silk, and very rarely from pure silk. The Butti and Patta designs with tussar silk are known to a very big extent.
The Garad

The Garad

#The Garad If you are not much aware about this then let me tell you that you will not be able to differentiate it with Korial. The difference lies in the fact that the red bordering of the saree is lighter and with small flower motifs all over, than what the Korial would offer.
Daccai Jamdan

Daccai Jamdan

# Daccai Jamdani Daccai Jamdani was a part of the great Bengal saree clan before the partition, but now it is solely known as Bangladeshi. Weaved from very fine Egyptian cotton and woven by hand, the touch and feel of Daccai Jamdani is supple and soft! Very famous and popular, the Daccai Jamdani is a must-have for high profiled events, parties, weddings and more in Bengal.
Taant

# Taant the taant white and red bordered sari is a traditional piece every Bengali lady would have in her wardrobe. Its very crisp and soft, and made from cotton. And since the Durga Puja festivities are on, you will surely notice women dressed in taant, if not baluchari, since it depicts the colours of the Goddess.
