Silk sarees and Magutas are being traditionally worn since a long time, both on religious and auspicious occasions. Silk sarees come in a large variety, the cost of saree depending upon the content of gold in it. The sarees are tastefully gold laced on its both edges and the pallu which is wrapped over the body.
