Shalmalini deals in pure handloom sarees, the kind that one usually finds at pricey designer stores in Shahpur Jat, Meherchand market and other expensive places. I’ve compared their prices with that of wholesale dealers and they match.
The interiors are quite different from what you normally find in Lajpat Nagar market; the fabric quality here is excellent. They stock handloom sarees, blouses, and accessories for women.
You can find sarees in raw silk, jute tussar, mulberry silk, and other materials.
This is a fixed price shop, so there’s no use bargaining. You could get your car here, but we’d suggest taking the metro as parking can be quite troublesome and getting an auto, a nightmare.
