Queen of Sarees, Kankatala Sarees launches 12th Retail Outlet of India in Jayanagar, Bengaluru. Kankatala is one of the oldest saree brands in Andhra Pradesh & Telangana and has represented the age-old weaving techniques for more than 77 years. The brand has always been known for pioneering trends in its market and has been growing steadily. The Jayanagar outlet is Kankatala’s 1st Store in Bengaluru, Karnataka, and is dedicated to their clientele in Jayanagar and Bengaluru. The store was unveiled on Saturday at 10.53 am by M.B. Patil (Former Home Minister, Karnataka & current MLA) & his wife, Mrs. Asha Patil, followed by the lamp-lighting ceremony by Mrs. Sowmya Reddy, member of the legislative assembly, in the esteemed presence of Shri Mallik Kankatala, CMD, Kankatala Sarees, along with the entire Kankatala Family, including the third-generation Directors, Arvind, Bharat & Anirudh Kankatala and Mr. Sovit Nanda, Vice President of Kotak Mahindra Bank.
Designed for the comfort of Queens of Kankatala, the interiors of the store are contemporary and classy. The store will house more than 10000 Sarees handpicked 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. The store will host authentic handwoven marvels that are one-of-a-kind, including signature Kanchipuram, Banarasi, Patola, Ikat, Paithani, Kota, Uppada, Khadi, Jamdani, Organza, Kalamkari, Gadwal, Tussar, and more.
Like all Kankatala stores, here too, handwoven exclusive sarees are handpicked personally by a Kankatala Family member to ensure that each saree is unique and no design is repeated, so that every Kankatala saree is as unique as their patrons. This process also ensures that only the finest quality products are presented to their customers.
“We have spent 3 generations representing authentic handlooms in Andhra Pradesh & Telangana. Over the years, we have seen the geographic reach of our clientele expand outside our states. With our e-commerce foray 3 years back, we have been catering to the Indian diaspora all across the world. Our 12th store is the first store in Karnataka, which is launched to cater to our growing clientele in Bengaluru. We have received a very warm response over the last few years during our exhibition, and our patrons encouraged us to bring an outlet for them in their city. This is our 2nd store launch in this quarter as we recently launched our 11th company-owned and company-operated store of Hyderabad last month. With a vision to revive the charm of Indian handloom in India, we are planning to expand our national footprint further in the near future", said Mallikarjuna Rao Kankatala, Chairman, Kankatala Sarees.
