Silk factory tour and saree draping Experience

Overview

There is something sensual and magical about silk… and there is something infinitely graceful about a sari, no matter in which style it may be draped by the wearer. This tour offers us a wonderful chance to see these two magical aspects of dress and custom come together for a most pleasing end result. Sarees are synonymous with Indian Women. A visit to a Mysore silk factory that produces one of the most popular silks in India is quite a learning experience. The wonder of Mysore silk’s inherent qualities – its softness, extraordinary lustre, elegant drape and regal look, has reverberated the world over.  To protect it from fakes it has been accorded the GI tag.

Why you will love it

  • Get to visit the Mysore silk factory and witness the complete industrial process on how it’s made.
  • Understand how the famous saree is made from the silk yarn to a beautiful saree
  • Visit a local family to have a unique saree draping experience and more cultural exchange.

What you will experience

Exploring the beautiful world of Mysore silk is quite an eye-opener on both the production of silk and saree draping. In fact today Mysore Silk boasts a Geographical Indication (GI) tag to its name. How exclusive can you get? These gorgeous sarees, exclusively made in Mysore, are light to wear, soft, classy, and Regal, made in the most beautiful hues. No wonder, Mysore silk sarees were synonymous with Royal women! We will visit the silk factory to learn all about the production of silk from start to finish. That means from the minute the silk yarn is put on the loom to the finished product… a temptingly beautiful saree, just ready to be worn.. We will not disappoint… because now we head for the home of our local host where over a cup of coffee we learn to drape a saree the traditional South Indian way.
