Our journey started in 1942, in the lanes of Vizag where our founder and my father, Mr. Appalaraju Kankatala sold handloom sarees on a bicycle. From the modest lanes of Vizag to the Capital of India, the 78 years’ journey has been marvelous. We are glad to launch our 13th exclusive retail outlet in Delhi. We wish to receive the same love from the people of Delhi as we have been receiving from other parts of the country.”
The actress Karisma Kapoor said on this new launch , “It is a pleasure for me to launch the very first store in North India of a brand which has a 78-year-old legacy behind it. I was amazed to know that from the year 1943 till date, each and every Handloom saree is personally handpicked by a family member of Kankatala themselves. The variety of handloom sarees that I saw here is breathtaking”.
The store will house handpicked handloom marvels from 50 major weaving clusters of India starting from INR.5000 and going up to 5 Lakhs and above, making it a one-stop saree destination for every budget, occasion, and style.
