The most widespread underlying presence that emerges in interior Vidarbha, central Marathwada region, and Coastal Maharashtra is the everyday-wear baan sari in plain or shot body colours for most communities.
Members of the wealthier communities wear it in finer counts in dark , deep colours : usually neel (indigo blue), kumkum (vermillion) and baiguni (purple), or sots between them and an additional use of haldi ( turmeric yellow). The three or four part divided borders in turmeric yellow are sometimes in silk; if the uyer can afford it, with these ending in broad selvedge using the predominant body colour. Plain bands in the end-piece in a four or five-band compositions are the standard.
In the plain border range there is a pale, plain Kora (unbleached) body or coloured body and dhoop chhaon (shot body) version which is Kharri ( resin printed) in the ground for the chandrakala saris, The multi striped borders and end-pieces provide both highlighting and a culmination to the delicately printed expanse of star and moon motifs in the body.
