design and intricate features it brings. Generally each Paithani is designed
individually and bear unique features and combinations. Lower range Paithanies
are therefore have common and repetitive features compared to higher range ones

like weddings, festivals, celebration by royalties and riches but being
affordable to everyone today, it is also used as an attire of specialty in
social gatherings, business meetings.
