Ageless and timeless, silk is considered to be one of the most luxurious fabrics all over the world. A favourite amongst the royalty, it made its way to the weaving centres of India's kingdoms and holy cities during the bygone era. Obtained from mulberry silkworms, the exquisite fabric was hand-spun into sarees with myriad motifs, palettes and brocades. It became a treasured piece of fabric and was passed on from one generation to the next as a heirloom. Known for its elegant and lustrous appearance, soft silk sarees are lightweight and easy to drape, making it the perfect ensemble for festive and special occasions.
