Silks for the season

SHOPPERS ON a buying spree can look forward to visiting the 103-year-old Radha Silk Emporium every year. The shop brings out a special festival collection annually. This Deepavali it is "Shree" — a range of silk saris. The collection comprises six types — VaraShree, AdiShree, ManjuShree, KalaShree, MadhuShree and ChitraShree priced between Rs.6,000 and Rs. 9,000. The saris with ancient motifs on the borders are from Kanchipuram, Arani and Thirubhuvanam. Jairam, managing partner, says, "Lily pink and blue are in vogue this season." The saris are traditional with a contemporary appeal. Rasi has come out with promotional schemes. Customers making purchases worth Rs.1,000 and above can get to open a fortune box by choosing the right key from approximately 100 keys and are entitled to a gift voucher.
