Kankatala’s Masterpieces – sarees you’ll be privileged to own, proud to flaunt, and pleased to pass on to the next generation. Each six-yard wonder, a piece of art, is handpicked by the Chairman, Mallik Kankatala.
The Kanchipuram silk weave, for instance… India’s age-old classic, made from the silk of mulberry, with authentic zari in the most exquisite designs from the little town of Kanchipuram in Tamil Nadu.
Or take the Mughal-influenced Banarasi silk weave from the ancient, historic city of Varanasi in UP. In lovely colours with exotic zari work, using painstaking and time-consuming weaving techniques like the kadwa, these sarees are unparalleled…
And the Paithani from Paithan in Aurangabad, Maharashtra – the ‘Queen of Silks’ that requires careful hand, foot and eye coordination of highly skilled weavers. Attractive, bright colours, gold tissue borders and pallus.

And if we move to Gujarat, there is the priceless Patan Patola double Ikat weave from Patan. A skill that is passed down along generations, the Patola weave requires a lot of mental calculations, vivid imagination, patience, undivided attention and dexterity of the hand.
Of course, there is Khadi – the humble, desi treasure, the Gandhian swadeshi identity of India. Khadi sarees have an unmatched dignity and sophistication that exudes fine taste.
