About “Kankatala” from Vizag returns to Bangalore with a Ugadi collection at Raintree
Kankatala is delighted to present a special exhibition and sale of stunning sarees at RainTree on Sankey Road, Bengaluru, on February 23rd, 24th and 25th 2020. Earlier showcases in the city yielded an overwhelming response, and this exclusively curated selection is being presented especially for Ugadi and the festive season.
The Ugadi collection introduces two unique new weaves exclusively available from Kankatala – Bandhani on Kanjivaram and Bandhani on Patan Patola. Some of the highlights of the very popular Pathan Patola range are the masterpiece Asawali weave, which takes 12 months to produce, and natural-dyed weaves, which take between 8 and 12 months to produce. Paithani sarees also strongly feature in the showcase.
This collection is also suitable for bridal wear, and features an exquisite selection of Kanjivaram silks, alongside a versatile range of Banarasis, Khadis, Kotas, Linens, Organzas, Gadwals, Uppadas, Ikats and designer sarees in fine renditions, which will suit a variety of occasions.
Established in 1943, Kankatala is renowned for hand-picked, hand-woven sarees. For over 75 years, the boutique has prided itself on a golden rule of curation which has never been broken: every single saree among the thousands in their catalogue must be carefully chosen by a member of the family. The curators look for and select only the best quality in weave, design and fabric. This is what has made the Kankatala name synonymous with exquisite sarees, and secured its place as one of Visakhapatnam’s most beloved boutiques over the decades, with branches across Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.
Speaking on the showcase, the boutique’s director Anirudh Kankatala says, “The passion for handlooms that we see in Bengaluru is unparalleled elsewhere, and it is always a pleasure for us to bring our catalogue to this highly discerning and stylish city. This is our fourth exhibition here so far. There could be no better choice than Bengaluru to premiere the very exclusive and original new weaves from the house of Kankatala.”
Prices start from Rs. 5000/-
