Detailed information: 

"Silk is a very special Natural Fibre. According to archeological evidence, silk has been used for at least 5000 years. According to Chinese legend, Empress Hsi Ling Shi, wife of the Yellow Emperor, sat under a mulberry tree and discovered that silkworm cocoons were made of delicate thread. The Empress then learned how to make luxurious fabric by spinning the silk. It became very popular during the Han Dynasty, where silk became a currency that was traded." Textilepedia, Fashionary International Ltd. 2022, pg 041

Tussar silk is harvested from the cocoons of wild silkworms. They spin an uneven filament in beautiful shades of cream, gold, and brown that gives tussar a distinctive structure and look.  

Banarasi Sarees have been associated with the nakshabandha families which were brought to India by Muhammad bin Tughlaq during his reign during circa 1324-1352 AD. Later many weavers fled due to the fire in Gujarat to various parts of India. 

During the reign of Akbar, master craftsman Khwaja Abdyl Sauad came to Banaras where he designed heddles of looms (gathwas) and many karkhanas (workshops) came into being. Many Persian motifs were also introduced. Historical references like Ain-i-Akhbari  are there for the Banaras weavers who were called Noor Baaf or shining cloth weavers.  Brocade evolved as the prime weaving style of Banaras and became one of the centres for export of its refined textiles in Gold and Silver. 

Wide variety of silks are used including Chinya, Mukta and Tandoori, these are slightly coarse silk used for heavy brocades. Katan has two strands twisted together and used for the warps. Thread which is used to create a soft and smooth texture silk is Pat or Patbana.
