Peshwai saree

Recently when I had gone to Pune, I went to the market. A friend suggested that I should buy Peshwai saree which are originally from there. These sarees are made of Puneri cotton, which is a very fine cotton and has pure zari palla and border. These looked so similar to Paithani sarees. I went to the store named Peshwai. I was shown at least 15 different colours in these. They were all light colours- lime green, soft pink, soft blue, etc. The only saree that caught my attention was this fuschia. It seems so similar to my Paithani saree.  Do check the link. I kept thinking and eventually, picked up fuschia only. No other colour looked as nice and bright as this. For a cotton saree, this seemed as expensive as silk but I was told that Puneri cotton (from Pune) is one of the finest cotton and hence it is overpriced.
