Once upon a time in Mysuru
Maharaja Krishnaraja Wadiyar IV, who presided over the royal seat between 1884 and 1940, spearheaded the rise of the Mysore silk sarees. Under his rule, the Government Silk Filature and Weaving Factory was set up in 1912 to bolster silk saree production in the region. Thus, the Mysore silk sarees were born.
Passing down the traditional weaving techniques
With a noble aim to elevate the status of Mysuru silk, the Maharaja, during his rule, has benevolently promoted traditional weaving techniques and uplifted the weaver community. The passionate artisans have ever since passed down the meticulous craft to their younger generation, safeguarding the authenticity of pure Mysore silk sarees.
