The ‘anchor’ shop of sorts in the first floor is the Narayani Silk House which jumps out at you just as you climb up the stairs. It has more floor space than most shops in the mall. In fact, you’ll be surprised to find a silk saree shop in a shopping centre that mostly has western clothes. But the shop isn’t an exception and you can see another silk saree shop just a few meters away in the first floor itself.
Narayani does a very attractive presentation of traditional sarees. So much so, that you’ll want to step in and have a look.
While the sarees are more in line with traditional sarees you will also find some of them with modern twists. The floor seating and personalized approach will help you find what you want faster.
The store houses Yeola Paithani silk sarees. These are considered among the finest in traditional sarees handmade in the town of Paithan in Yeola, Maharashtra. Similarly, the store also has a traditional Bandhej Bandhini collection in festive colours. These will make you want to buy a saree instantly for the next function you plan to attend. While there isn’t much scope of bargaining, you’ll get what you see and you can always ask for a little discount on the side.
