  • One should always check the weight of silk saree. The heavier the silk is, the longer our silk sari will last.

  • We should also make sure we are purchasing a pure silk saree as it lasts long and gives an elegant look to its wearer. To check the purity of silk, we should take few threads and burn them if it leaves a black powdery residue and an unpleasant smell behind, it is pure.

  • If we are planning to get a silk saree having zari work over it, we should make sure the zari is pure. Otherwise, it loses its sheen and turns black, ruining the entire look of saree. Also, it is advisable not to go for gold zari as "pure gold" zari doesn't exist. It is basically gold coated silver wire which has silk thread in its core.
