Who likes to drape a saree that looks and feels cheap? On the flip side, who likes to overpay for occasional wear sarees? It is not too wise to spend ₹20,000 on a saree that comes in the same style and quality as one you can get for ₹2,500.
A reasonable price range is ₹1,500 to ₹5,000. At Drapemoda LLP, we have discovered the perfect balance of high quality fabric, elegant colors & styles, bulk orders processing and exceptional customer service. So, why is this the optimal price range? If you pay less, you’ll see a drastic decline in the quality of your saree fabric and in your shopping experience. Pay more, and you’ll merely be buying a saree for the brand name. (Truth factor : No one at the wedding will see the designer label on your saree)
