Kankatala expands retail presence with its first store in New Delhi
South Indian ethnic wear brand Kankatala Sarees has expanded its retail presence with the opening of its first retail store in the national capital New Delhi.
The store will house handloom sarees from over 50 major weaving clusters across India. The store was inaugurated by Bollywood actor Karisma Kapoor.
Commenting on the store opening, Mallikharjuna Rao Kankatala, chairman and managing director of Kankatala, in a statement said: “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.”
Karisma Kapoor added: “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 Handloom saree is personally handpicked by a family member of Kankatala themselves. The variety of handloom sarees that I saw here is breath-taking.”
The brand has a major presence in southern India with 12 retail outlets in the states of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh.
