… luxury, bliss, gorgeousness. Pure silk! πŸ™‚

Now, who doesn’t know about how famous India is for all the silk sarees and the varieties. From the Kanjeevarams to the Benarasi silk sarees, from Gadhwal silks to the Tussars. Lots of variety for the ladies to fall in love with!

If you are in Karnataka, the silk saree variety that you have to check for is the KSIC Mysore Silk Sarees. Finest quality silk sarees with silver zari, polished in gold. Unlike the other varieties of silk saree, which are stiff and heavy, the Mysore silk saree is of the softer, easily drape-able kind. But that doesn’t mean the price range is any lesser.Β Due to the price of gold and silver going up all the time, the basic range of these sarees start at 14-15K.

Of course the best time to buy these sarees are during the seasonal sales they organize, generally during Deepavali and Ugadi. I just missed the Ugadi sale. 😦 Since I had been planning to buy one since the first anniversary and kept postponing, I thought the best time to buy it, would be for the new house-warming ceremony. Well.. I went ahead and bought one gorgeous Red and Black combination saree today. Yay! πŸ™‚ It cost a whopping 17K after 5% discount. 😳

My gorgeous red saree! :D
My gorgeous red saree! πŸ˜€

Visitors to Karnataka, esp Mysore/Bangalore, should definitely buy one of these beauties. But beware there are a lot of outlets which sell other sarees in the name of Mysore silk, which are fake. Please always go to KSICΒ outlets only and look for silk mark. Happy Shopping! πŸ™‚
