Ok, its not silk, its Art Silk, that means that no silk worms were harmed while making this saree.
It’s a pretty simple saree, plain with a small border but so darn elegant.
Made by Aapno Rajasthan
Priced at Rs 800 , $20, its a bargain. I challenge you to find me a dress as elegant as this Saree for $20.00.
I am not bean counter; an inexpensive classy saree is as attractive as the special collection of Satya Paul.

OK folks, if you really have a gorgeous saree that you want to show off, do not use a vilayati mannequin with short golden hair and please, please, I beg you, to put a darn blouse on the mannequin.
Don’t show a saree like this, especially if costs Rs 20,000 ($425).
This picture is wrong from so many angles; it hurts my eyes to even look at it.
