best store to buy authentic sari fabric


Screw ABC, Anthropologie, Urban. Screw any stores making big bucks overcharging us for stuff they paid a third-world worker 50 cents for. Instead, DIY: new curtains, silk skirts, or bed throws with fabric sold to you by helpful employees like Mita (pictured) at the INTERNATIONAL SARI PALACE. Around since 1971, ISP has over a hundred different designs—from synthetic chiffons and georgettes, $10 to $40 per six yards (that’s how much material goes in a sari), to embroidered sequined silks, $35 to $150 per six yards.
