Sari Shopping in Surat


    Aptly called the textile capital of India – Surat is known all over the world for its beautiful and gorgeous Indian Saris, the traditional dress of India as also dresses and lehengas worn by the ladies. It is one of the greatest emporiums for sari trade in India. No wonder then, it is also a shopper’s paradise for every Indian woman who loves to drape herself in this classic and elegant 6 meter long cloth. Many of the textile markets here are wholesale in nature but some like New Bombay and Old Bombay textile markets are full of retail shops selling some of the best designer sarees, lehengas and other Indian dresses that are in the trend.

Here are a few pictures I clicked when I was recently at some of the textile cloth markets in Surat selling all kinds of beautiful sarees to woo the Indian shopper. The sight of the wide array of of saree collection in these markets and shops just made my jaw drop - there were pure silk sarees, cotton silk sarees, georgette sarees, bandhani sarees, kota sarees, plain sarees, party wear sarees, chiffon sarees, bridal wedding sarees, designer lehengas, fancy sarees, new sarees, old fashioned sarees, and so much more! You name it and it was there! For those who cannot go to the shops in person or don't have the patience to endure the persistent haggling by the shopkeepers, try looking for them online and you might just find yourself latest, trendy, exclusive designs of silk, cotton and designer Sarees suited to your needs. If you're lucky you might also land up some special offers online on the saree price.

Coming back to the post, let me not waste any more time and get straight to the business ... sari shopping! Come along, let's begin our online Sari shopping in Surat!

    Enter in any of these markets and all you will see is different types of colorful saris – heavy silks embellished with delicate works of zari, crepes embroidered with elaborate threadwork, printed chiffons, georgettes and many many more - all in unique designs and vibrant colors.

    If you bargain tough, chances are you will leave the market smiling with a good quality sari for a very reasonable price. Most of the shops here have saree prices slashed to more than half of the actual price, the reason why Surat is famous as the textile hub of India. We had entered the Old Bombay textile market just to get a feel of the sari shopping mania. When we left, my mother had her hands full!!
