Manufacturing and selling handmade and only natural textiles like pure silk, wool and cashmere textiles last 30 years and my shop is highly recommended by many European and English language travel guide books from a long, long time.

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

A beautiful collection of scarves, shawls, and other handwoven pieces. I spent several hours exploring the variety of weaves and combinations of pashmina, wool, silk, cotton--asking many questions of the owner, which he knowledgeably answered. No pressure to buy, but a lot of fun to buy here. Most of my friends and family at home will receive presents from this... More

You have not fully experience Varanasi until you have entered Harish's shop. Scarves, shawls, and yard goods are spread before you in endless colors, styles, and patterns. You can ogle and fondle to your hearts content with absolutely no pressure to buy, but buy you will because of the high quality and reasonable prices. Ask Harish about the history of... More

Very nice shop, maybe somewhat hard to find, in a quiet sidestreet of Varanasi. Almost inexhaustible selection of silk (and cashmere) textiles (scarfs etc), almost too much to digest :-) wonderful place to find some beautiful (and very reasonably priced) gifts for those who could not make the trip to Varanasi! Strongly recommended.
