Kalyan Silks’ product lines are different from other players in the textile industry. So are its infrastructure facilities. Kalyan Silks has a string of looms in all major centers across the country. In-house designing centers and manufacturing units help Kalyan Silks bring the latest trends to its shelves. In addition to all this, Kalyan Silks owns India’s largest wholesale textile showroom, which powers this heritage brand to control prices and maximize quality right through the year.

The Process

Silk alone doesn’t create a saree. It takes unflinching commitment and a high level of creativity to weave heavenly creations out of silk. Each saree you find in Kalyan Silks symbolizes our commitment to bring you the very best. And each weave embodies the spirit of uncompromising craftsmanship. 

Today, Kalyan prides itself in a string of own looms across the country, where expert weavers work painstakingly to create breathtaking patterns and works in both traditional and contemporary styles. Behind each exquisite design is the intensive labour of up to five workers. And in a span of almost 30 days these artisans bring to life pure silk saris, which are woven to perfection even to the minutest detail.

Even the zari used in the sari is a mark of Kalyan’s commitment to bring you an unparalleled product. These pure and long-lasting zaris are made in the looms of Surat, and each zari goes through stringent quality checks before they are spun on saris. The quality check is done at the King’s Institute, a central government R&D facility at Chennai and the Gujarat Bullion Refinery at Ahmedabad. The zaris are made by spraying gold over intertwined silk threads and gold or silver wires. And what makes these zaris truly priceless is the fact that when melted even after years of use it will still fetch above 40% of its original price.

So, the next time you wear a Kalyan Silks creation, do remember that you are wearing the most eloquent expression in silk. Made exclusively for you.

History

As in any industry, the leader has the same story to tell. The story of humble beginning, of hard work, honesty and honours.

For Kalyan Silks, the humble beginning was way back in 1909. The hard work still continues. Honesty is the most valued work ethic. And honours come from discerning customers from across the globe.

The story of Kalyan Silks begins with T.S. Kalyanramaiyer, a visionary who set up a small textile shop in Thrissur over a century ago. His mission: bring the finest in textiles at prices nobody else can match. Though the world has changed drastically since the inception of Kalyan Silks, the tradition continued generation after generation. And Kalyan Silks has grown from a small town shop to build an empire in silks.

Today, at the helm of this ever-expanding textile retail business is T.S.Pattabhiraman, who believes simple work philosophies build great ventures. Which he proved by setting up Twenty one landmark ventures at Kochi, Thrissur, Palakkad, Kozhikode, Kannur, Kottayam,Thiruvalla, Trivandrum, Thodupuzha, Attingal, Kunnamkulam, Bangalore,Erode and international showrooms in Dubai, Sharjah, Abudhabi and Meena Bazaar .

Kalyan Silks owes its ever-growing popularity to its never changing motto: silks nobody else could give, at prices nobody else could even think of. To bring matchless collections at unmatched prices, Kalyan Silks has set up a string of looms across the country. Where thousands of master weavers bring magical creations in silks to life exclusively for Kalyan Silks. Exclusively for you.

Exclusive creations and exquisite ranges today distinguish Kalyan Silks from other saree showrooms. And discerning shoppers flock to Kalyan Silks not just from all corners of the country, but also from all corners of the world. No wonder, researches say 90% of Kalyan Silks’ customers are lifetime customers. And they shop only at Kalyan Silks, be it for a simple handkerchief or a six-meter masterpiece in silk.
