Consumers prefer these Mysore silk sarees over several other brands, for its excellent quality and charm. Due to which, the saree's produced by the Mysore Silk Factory are highly in demand. Thus, in this scenario of rising demand, the new facility underway would help the factory to boost its production of sarees, Yogeeshwar stated.
