Mysore Silk Saree

The Mysore Silk crepe is woven from handspun silk yarn and is one of the most widely used form of silk across India. The Mysore Silk comes from the city of Mysore in Karnataka, India. Since Mysore Silk crepe belongs to an era of ancient India, it traditionally is made of pure gold Zari. Inspired by the natural ambiance and customs of the time, the Mysore Silk crepe saree got a face that preserves the heritage of India.

The Mysore Silk Sarees are going through heavy makeover and new styles are being introduced to make the already popular form of silk even more attractive and tempting. Some special features of Indian textile designing like Bandhini Styles and Kasuti Embroidery are being infused into the making of Mysore Silk Sarees. A wide range of attractive colors are also used in the making of the sarees. The beauty of the Silk Sarees of Mysore depend largely on the intricate work of 'Zari'. Mostly these sarees contain golden lace on the saree edges and on the part of the saree that covers the shoulder.
