Brocades are textiles woven with warp and weft threads of different colors and often of different materials. The Varanasi brocades are woven in silk, with profuse use of metal threads borders. The weavers are known as karigars, which means artists, who weave in workshops called karkhanas, Almost every inch of space in the karkhana is taken up by looms, and above each loom hangs a crowded arrangement of strings leading down to the room heddles. The zari thread, known as kalabattun, consists of finely drawn gold, silver or base metal thread, wound round a silk thread. The most famed of Varanasi brocaded textile is called kinkhab woven with a coarse but durable silk known as mukta, which is heavy enough to take brocading with silver or gold thread. The silk-and-zari-work brocade of lighter material and less heavier ornamentation is known as bafta and the brocade without any metal thread work is known as amaru. Benaras brocades are woven on pitlooms.

 Om is a mantra and mystical Sanskrit sound of Hindu origin and important in various Dharmic religions such as Hinduism, Buddhism, Sanatana Dharma and Jainism. The syllable is also referred to as omkara or aumkara and in Sanskrit it is sometimes referred to as pranava, literally "that which is sounded out loudly".om is the mystic name for the Hindu Trimurti and represents the union of the three gods, for Brahma,  for Vishnu and  for Mahadev which is another name of Shiva. The three sounds also symbolise the three Vedas, namely (Rigveda, Samaveda, Yajurveda).According to Hindu philosophy (see Māndukya Upanishad), the letter A represents creation, when all existence issued forth from Brahma's golden nucleus; the letter U refers to Vishnu the God of the middle who preserves this world by balancing Brahma on a lotus above himself, and the letter M symbolises the final part of the cycle of existence, when Brahma falls asleep and Shiva has to breathe in so that all existing things have to disintegrate and are reduced to their essence to him. More broadly, om is said to be the primordial sound that was present at the creation of the universe. It is said to be the original sound that contains all other sounds, all words, all languages and all mantras.

Ghungroo or dancing bells are musical anklets tied to the feet of classical Indian dancers. A string of ghungroos can range from 10 to 200 bells knotted together. Ghungroos are worn in traditional performances of the classical Indian dance forms. These ghungharus are globular bells each about 2 cm in diameter. Dancers string them on ropes or sew them onto cloth or leather strips and wear them around ankles. Larger ghungroos may be strung on a circle of wire and shaken as accompaniment to a song. They are often fixed to other instruments to add to the sound. The bells are decorative in themselves and the cords strung are often bright and finished with tassels.
There are two common forms of the ghungroo. In traditional form it is merely a number of bells woven together on a cotton string or cords. And the same are used in dance forms like Kathak. But these types for anklets are not cozy for dancers to wear. In modern for these ghungroos are stitched to a padded cushion made of soft cloth like velvet or soft leather to make them easy to wear. This may then be strapped to the feet of a dancer.
