Bangalore Silk is known for its simplicity, purity, and texture of Silk, which is meticulously produced in the silk farms of Bangalore, Karnataka. These farms have existed for several years and have progressed immensely with the passage of time and renovations in the textile industries. Bangalore silk saris have been the first choice for traditional functions like weddings and other ceremonial rituals. The silk embroidery saris are in great demand as the work enhances the already rich texture of the silk. Sometimes small beads, crystals and colored stones are used while decorating these saris. They are also costlier than the traditional Sarees. Gold threads woven across the Silk Saree gives a rich look and is most sought after for weddings.
With a beautiful history such as the one Bangalore possesses, it’s easy to see why MAIA leans towards fabrics and artisans close to home, encouraging others to do the same. The simple yet luxurious nature of the silk created in Bangalore will allow MAIA to create a finish for their furniture that is both exquisite yet sustainable in nature. The use of Sadarahalli Granite is also a conscious decision, as Granite has the lowest carbon footprint compared to any other materials such as porcelain and vinyl. As the Sadarahalli granite is naturally sourced from Karnataka, the carbon footprint is decreased yet again.
Through conscious decisions that make a difference, MAIA is encouraging all their residents to look at sustainability as a way of living, one that has been integrated into their lives from all ways it can be. With their properties, the core value that shines through is sustainability, showcased as they use materials that matter.
