Two of the most popular types of Bengali Sarees are the Baluchari Saree and the Tant Saris. The Baluchari Saree gets its name from its native village, Baluchari located in Bengal. During the 18th century, the then Nawab of Bengal, Murshid Quli Khan brought the art of making Baluchari Sarees from Dhaka. Whereas, the Tant sarees also rose to fame during the reign of the Mughals.
