What Is Mysore Silk?
The silk of Mysore has been a tradition handed down through generations. As the name suggests, the craft of weaving this kind of silk started in Karnataka, and has since been amalgamated with various kinds of designs and handiwork as it travelled across the Subcontinent. Mysore Silk Sarees are characterised by intricate Zari work with golden borders and designs. The heaviness of the work and the richness of the material speaks of nothing but high standards and grandeur.
This is marked by the use of original gold and silver to decorate the beautiful material. Such work on borders and Palla are accentuated by the solid intense colours of the entire Saree, usually plain without any other designs. Limeroad offers you a variety of such colours to choose from, with the best ways to style them, right here!
Kinds Of Mysore Silk Sarees
Mysore Silk is a kind of pure silk, hence the sarees made out of this material have an extravagance about them. Moreover, such sarees have been infused with various designs and materials to provide a wide variety of taste to choose from for every occasion.
- Georgette Saree - Georgette is a lightweight material that is made from silk in a handwoven manner. The lightness of the material and lack of lustre gives it a simplistic look that needs no additional to mark its glory. Since such sarees are mostly seen in solid colours, they go well with a set of silver jewellery with colourful stones. These sarees are ideal even for semi formal occasions and are a must have for every woman's wardrobe!
- Crepe Silk Saree - Mysore Silk Crepe Sarees are known for their lustre, and beauty that pleases the eyes. Crepe is a more crispy material as compared to Georgette, and comes with both heavy work as well as light prints, so choose one depending on the occasion. Check out Limeroad's collection of Mysore Silk Crepe Sarees by Arars for a finished look! A Crepe silk saree made of Mysore Silk looks best when pleated up to the shoulder, with a long length of palla hanging at the back of the shoulder.
