about government silk factory

Known for its high quality silk, the is a must visit if you plan to do some serious shopping. The Government Silk Factory in Mysore has a high demand for silk due to its facility of choicest materials coming straight from the loom. Every sari of this place is unique in its design and the products are legendary and praised for their true quality, fine gold or zari motif and vibrant colors. The factory was founded by the royal family of Mysore, as a means to wear the best quality silk fineries, as well as to export the silk and make profits.

The showrooms opened by this factory are usually crowded with locals as well as the tourists. So, come here and get a chance to see the master weavers at work who do everything from spinning, soaking, weaving to finally dyeing the weaved silk. And of course, don't forget to carry home some of these gorgeous shimmering silks straight off the looms.
