A popular name among the residents of Mylapore, Shringaram is an ethnic showroom offering stunning weaves from across the country. From simple cotton sarees to festive sarees, ladies, you can find them all at this store. The craftsmanship on the sarees along with the beautiful hues they come in is what we truly love about this place. Kota cotton sarees with intricately designed borders, simple cotton sarees with floral motifs, silk sarees with dancing figures - each piece here is unique and tastefully designed, testing your resolve to not splurge.
Starting from about INR 1600, we found some delicate cotton sarees with pastel hues and embroidery work featuring buttas, flowers, peacocks, zari borders and more. Colourful yet not in your face, these sarees exude chicness and the richness of Indian motifs at the same time. However, it's Shringaram's silk sarees that have our heart. Available in a range of colours right from pretty pastels to magenta, emerald green, royal blue and even multicolour sarees, these come with amazing thread work in hues of gold. Perfect for festive wear, you can pair them up with designer blouses to complete the look.
Shringaram's Kancheepuram silk sarees are particularly worth checking out. With contrasting blouses and checkered kattams (the pleats section of the saree), these truly capture the beauty of South Indian sarees and get popularly picked for wedding wear. Prices for these start from about INR 4000. You can also find some great salwar materials here in cotton, silk, georgette, crepe and more. Featuring vivid abstract prints, floral detailing, Indian motifs, intricate embroidery and even checkered prints, you can pick materials for every occasion here.
