Mysore Silk Sarees – Manufacture

First of all, Mysore silk sarees are manufactured in the city of Mysore in Karnataka. Karnataka is the largest producer of Mulberry silk in India. It is mainly grown in the Mysore area. Further, Kanjivaram silk sarees which is woven in the town of Kanchipuram near Chennai also source silk from Karnataka.

The first manufacturing facility for Mysore silks was originally set up by Maharaja Krishna Deva Wodeyar of Mysore with looms imported from Switzerland. The Maharajahs of Mysore were  certainly  patrons of silk weaving. In 1980, the manufacturing facility was handed over to the Karnataka Silk Industries Corporation Ltd. (KSIC).  Hence, KSIC is the largest producer of these types of silk fabrics & sarees.

KSIC has several retail outlets in Bangalore and Mysore.
