Silk Industry Tour with Jay - 4 hours

Learn the art of making silk fabric from weavers in Mysore!

About the Experience

Jay

Hi! My name is Jay and I'm 28 years old. I moved to Mysore in 2009 to get a degree in Civil Engineering and gradually discovered my love for travelling. During these escapades, I realised that I have a lot of fun being a guide too. Since 2015 I've been a tour guide, acquainting people with Mysore. I love this city to bits because it's small and the people are really nice. It's is packed with history and lots of beautiful places to keep travellers interested and entertained. I can speak English and Hindi. Let me show you around the silk industry, something Mysore is famous for!

Details

This experience is an introduction to the local silk industry in Mysore, officially known as the Karnataka Silk Industries Corporation Ltd. by the government. Get to interact with the local weavers and discover the intricate, age-old process of silk weaving. Enjoy an informative tête-à-tête with the craftsmen as they relay their daily routine; the process of dying, loading the loom, and how strings of silk are transformed into soft fabrics. Also, learn how the famous Mysore saree embroidery is done using real silver and gold thread!
