What’s unique is that most of the sari collection is in handloom cotton with the softest weaves, with a small collection of tunics and dresses. Saris in handloom cotton with new block prints inspired by nature motifs and hues are not seen very often around the city.

Not only are different complementary colours and prints combined to form a synergy in each sari, but in many cases, the palu, the edges, the borders, and blouses are treated with some additional texture and zing.

Wallet Factor: A handloom cotton sari costs Rs. 750 while one with handblock prints is for not more than Rs.1000. Silk saris range from Rs.2000 to 3000.

I had an extremely unpleasant experience at Fulki, Koramangla in Bangalore. I bought a saree for a friend's wedding and was told that I could come and collect the blouse after 8 days. When I went to collect the blouse I was asked to pay 850 Rs for stitching a blouse!!! I mean with that kind of money you can get a suit stitched. These people will fleece you in whatever way they can. Nobody told me beforehand the stitching will cost 1/5th the cost of the saree otherwise I would've done it from somewhere else. And when I went to collect the blouse, the proprieter Ms.Monali wasn't there. The sales girl who was there flatly told me that she can't budge on the price and I tried calling Ms. Monali but she never answered her phone. The attitude was like now we've made the sale, we don't care about you anymore.
