300 sari stores in one place is a nightmare for most men. Okay, all men. If your wife gets to know about this, well, she didn't hear it from us.
Shilparamam is organising the Annual All India Sari Mela from 23rd September to 8th October. Weavers of 16 states from different parts of the country are exhibiting their products in about 300 stalls set up by Shilparamam. The exhibition was a huge success in the preceding years, due to which the participant weavers have risen every year. This being the Navaratri festivity period too, the organisers are expecting bigger crowds this year.
The exhibition has various saris in different designs and makes with attractive eye-catching colors - namely Venkatagiri, Gadwal, Pochampally, Uppada, Jandani, Jacuard and mirror embroidery from Andhra Pradesh, Patola handloom saris from Gujarat, silk saris from Haryana, Bihar and Jammu/Kashmir, Pune cotton from Maharashtra, Chanderi saris from Madhya Pradesh, Patchwork saris from Gujarat, Bandani, Kota and hand-embroidered saris from Rajasthan, Kanchi silk from Tamil Nadu, hand-embroidered saris from Uttaranchal, Zari from Uttar Pradesh, Benarasi silks from Varanasi and Bengal cotton saris from West Bengal.
The exhibition will be inaugurated by Chitra Ramachandran, Secretary of Heritage, Museum, Tourism and Cultural Department, on 23rd September.
