In 2016 I visited Paraslakshmi Exports and when I returned home, I was sad because I had not bought enough beautiful reasonably priced beautiful scarves for my friends. I was especially sad because I had not bought a fabulous pashmina scarf, so soft with such exquisite Kashmiri embroidery, for myself. In February 1917, I was able to return to Varanasi... More

What a beautiful shop to visit! If you want high quality silk fabrics, bedding, scarves, etc. at reasonable prices and friendly people helping you browse through everything they offer, then go to this place. They have a huge selection to choose from and stunning colours to suit every taste. It is refreshing not to have to bargain for prices, as... More

This shop is beautiful! There is a large variety of items, material and colors - there will inevitably be something you want - but you certainly aren't pushed to buy. All the textiles are of the highest quality and rich in beauty. I bought a scarf (which I wore in Varanasi afterwards and got many compliments from locals!) and a... More

We had a wonderful time sifting through the many silks, cottons, wools and cashmere. The staff are extremely knowledgeable and I feel that I learnt a lot about different types of fabric and qualities here. This is a very trustworthy establishment and I purchased many scarves and fabrics here. There is everything from bed sheets to shawls to fine silk... More

The textile shop is filled with beautiful fabrics, prints, and colors. There are fixed prices, and Harish and Malika were very helpful and patient in helping us find and choose the items we wanted, which took a while since there was a large selection of beautiful designs. It is a great place to buy gifts as well.

We were lucky enough to have a few days in Varanasi at Homestay. Each time we walked into Harish's shop, perhaps only to ask a question about our room or a meal time, we saw something we had not noticed before and bought selections from yet another variety of textiles. We have been delighting our family and friends with the... More

Paraslakshmi exports is, in my opinion, the best boutique for textiles in Varanasi, high quality products and kind service are their keys to make you have a really nice buying experience. Highly recommended

I highly recommend visiting Harish's textile shop. I have traveled to India before and have done a lot of shopping. Harish's assortment of beautiful scarves, shawls and bedspreads are all of the highest quality and reasonably priced. We stayed at his homestay and couldn't resist visiting the shop every day! Harish packed and shipped our purchases and they arrived safely... More

Harish's shop has a fantastic array of scarves, shawls, fabrics and more, in a technicolour rainbow of colours and styles. It is easy to loose hours in their marvelling in the goods being spread out in front of you - as with many places in India. The big difference here is that the peices are all of the very highest...

One of the big frustrations a westerner might encounter in India is the fear of getting swindled. How to negotiate? What are things worth really? You don't want to be stingy, but nor do you want to be cheated outright. Paralakshmi Exports solves this frustration: the buying process is fixed price, with easy payment options. The goods are of the... More
