The Tant sarees of Bengal is one of the famous cotton sarees. The weaving of Tant is also commonly known as the handloom weaving which is done by the rural artisans of Bengal. Shantipur, in the Nadia district of West Bengal, is the main place where the weavers continue their gorgeous loom for 600 years approx. 

The design of Bengal cotton are well known by their wide borders and intricately decorated pallus. These are available in various colours and vibrant designs which have a variety of motifs. 

The best weaving talents intricately weave the cotton threads to weave a beautiful Tant cotton saree. The borders of these sarees are a little thickly woven, keeping it safe from getting worn out. Traditionally, handlooms were used by the weavers to create these, but now it has been largely replaced by power looms. 

It takes 6 to 7 hours to weave a saree. If weavers have their own traditional handloom, they earn 100rs for making one saree a day. Pandemic hits them hard.
