Short of the silk worms themselves, they've got everything here from around the country. Add a sarkari touch, and the prices are somewhere around you, too.
Revathi Creative Communication is organising an exhibition-cum-sale of silk fabrics, at Kamma Sangham, Ameerpet, from 28th September to 12th October. Silk Spectrum 2006, as the exhibition is titled, showcases various silk fabrics from different states:
Gadwal, Dharmavaram, Pochampally, Kothakota and Chirala from Andhra Pradesh
Tussar and Kantha from Bihar
Kantha, Tribal Work and Kosa Silk from Chattisgarh
Gharchola, Patola, Pannetor, Block & Ajrak Printed Materials from Gujarat

Bomkai and Sambalpuri from Orissa
Bandhej from Rajasthan
Kanjeevaram and Coimbatore from Tamil Nadu
Tanchoi, Jamdani and Jamavar from Uttar Pradesh
Baluchari, Kantha, Tangail, Jamdani & Daccai from West Bengal
With Dussera, Diwali and Ramzan approaching, women get to choose traditional silk saris and dress material at very attractive rates. Traditionally too, women prefer silk saris for pujas during this occasion, and so this is a good opportunity to select from a vast variety.
The exhibition will be inaugurated by Nedurumalli Rajyalakshmi, Minister for School Education, Adult Education, Libraries, Archeology, Museums and Archieves, Government of Andhra Pradesh, on 28th September. The other guests to be present for the inauguration are Chetan Anand and Jwala Gutta, both international Badminton players.
