One packed video which showcases top 5 collections from heritage Karnataka state. Each and every handwoven saree has its own uniqueness and charm, I respect each and every handcrafted saree. All these five sarees are neatly presented in the video below, Let us see now what are these fascinating ones!

Blue Blue Blue oh my crazy blue tints I can say this is a simplistic weave from Udupi handloom cotton saree, down to earth, simplistic weave, traditionally woven checkered no designs no motifs what a way to drape this saree for a humid climate and look rustic, I fell in love with this beauty at a first look.

For this lazy summer afternoons, Hubli saree is the best one, the texture of these sarees are butter soft the best part is this saree is airy and hence highly breathable fabric. Easy to drape what more one needs? what made me to shop around this saree is the dual combination of shades the burnt Orange blend and pink in the base of the saree and borders are just outstanding I can say with bottle green, a border which highlights chevron pattern and gives that extraordinary look.

Heritage saree from the cultural capital of Karnataka is Mysore, three things are a must when you visit Mysore the first one is Mysore Pak, Mysore masala dosa, Mysore silks from KSIC all these three have their own distinctive style and taste.

The oldest traditional weave is Ilkal saree, much loved and appreciated by saree enthusiast groups, these cotton versions are wearable daily and silk versions occasionally.

and last ones from this list is Molakalmuru silk saree, rudraksha motifs how pleasantly woven one should definitely experience this charm from the given video link below.

I see the younger generation of today although they study masters and get out of college and join some good firm and some point of time, they tend to quit routine 9 to 6 job, basically for two reasons, the first reason might be they are about to get 'Married' or second most important reason is 'Pregnancy' due to being able to deal with pressure in the workplace and rest during pregnancy is most valued reasons. During this time they tend to earn for their living at home while taking rest, what generally people fail to do some research and 'Basic prerequisite' before starting Saree Business, one should explore varies products, detailing, techniques and so many things. It's like failing to study the syllabus one full year and doing a last minute study. What you get the end of the day is mediocre results.

At some point of time waking up in the morning and going to a job is not feasible as grow older right? How many of you think like that, the hierarchy in office which makes crazy, although we work hard like anyone else we don't get recognition nor promotions, this is a common pool that majority of them are facing today, some they share and some they don't share, basically after all this ups and downs in life once they cross thirty years or after they realize that 'I NEED BE MY BOSS' this is the peak time to start something which is fresh, so many follow their passion which they are good at. Passion is something which will not fetch any money to be frank, one needs to work towards it to make a profitable business. My advice to everyone is don't start Saree Business just because in your neighborhood someone is doing it, each and every ones road-map is unique. Each and every human in this planet is gifted with some talent, just that we have to allocate some time and discover the journey within us, Some may be talented in Crafts, some in Paintings, some in Business so discover your soul's inner peace and happiness and travel towards the same.
