Priyo Gopal Bishoyi is a favourite destination when it comes to saree shopping for any occasion. They have two outlets, one in Burrabazar (the wholesale market of Kolkata) and the other in Triangular Park, near Gariahat. A whole range of sarees from Banarsi silks, South silks, Taant, (woven from cotton threads) Ikkat, Baluchari and Bomkai are available.
The Baluchari silk saree is characterised by reproduction of scenes from epics like the Ramayana and the Mahabharata as also scenes from marriage festivities such as a bride riding in a palanquin, local musicians at work, etc. These are all reproduced in the pallu of the saree. At times, gold and silver threads are also used in the embroidery work which gives the sarees a royal and aristocratic look and feel. Bomkai is a traditional weave from the State of Odisha. Zardosi ,embroidery and sequin work on silk sarees with rich pallus and borders are the traditonal favorites here.
This is one of the best saree shops in Kolkata.
