In the previous post about JaisalmerI explained that Mahendra's wife taught us how to dress the sari. In addition to paying close attention, we recorded a video which I have preferred to put in a separate entrance so that it does not go unnoticed:
What I had always wondered about the sari and had not dared to ask:
Where can I buy the sari?
Being the pledge of everyday useobviously you can buy in all towns and cities. Of course, the quality and designs, in addition to the price, will vary depending on the area. In my opinion, the most beautiful saris are found in Varanasi. In fact, the city is known for the quality of its fabrics, and it was a shame that we found out after having been there.
Do you sell the sari with the blouse made?
Usually not. The usual thing is to buy the fabric, which usually measures seven meters, and then take it to a tailor to make it tailor-made. However, in some tourist shops you can sell the blouse separately and this does not usually coincide completely with the fabric you want to buy. In emporiums they are made in an hour, but the price of the sari is exorbitant.
