The first thing that jumps to mind when you think of Bangalore silk saris are the golden threads engraved on a dark or brightly colored sari enhanced by exotic symmetrical patterns. Nowadays these saris have also morphed into more colorful and vibrant hues, appealing to the younger generation.
Saris are produced meticulously from Bangalore silk, which is regarded as one of the purest silks produced in India, at the silk farms inspired by Jamshetji Tata. Jamshetji during one of his visits to Japan was impressed by quality of silk produced there. He chose Bangalore, the city with the perfect climate, for rearing silkworms in India and inspired the onset of the silk revolution in and around Bangalore.
Bangalore silk saris are the first choice of many for bridal wear. In parts of south India, they are a part of a ceremonial ritual where the groom’s family gifts a Bangalore silk sari to the bride and she wears it for the wedding.
