Welcome to Sai Silks (Kalamandir) Limited, a retail textile business group that was founded in 2005 by Mr. Chalavadi Naga Kanaka Durga Prasad and Mrs. Chalavadi Jhansi Rani. According to revenues and PAT in Fiscal 2019, 2021, and 2022, SSKL is one of South India’s top retailers of ethnic clothing, especially sarees (Source: Technopark Report). Initially, the group was launched under the name “Sai Silks.” The partnership firm later changed its legal status to “Sai Silks (Kalamandir) Private Limited” in 2008. Finally, in May 2009, it was changed to “Sai Silks (Kalamandir) Public Limited,” receiving a new certificate of incorporation.
In Hyderabad, the firm began its journey as a saree retailer in 2005, with “Kalamandir” as its initial brand. The business started in a 3213 square foot retail space, now it is spread over Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Karnataka, and Tamil Nadu. Currently, the group has a network of 54 retail locations as of FY 22 E. The majority of the group’s revenue is generated by the sale of sarees under the brands “Kalamandir,” “Mandir,” “Kancheepuram Varamahalakshmi Silks,” and “KLM Fashion Mall.”
We are proud to say that we have transformed what was formerly a disorganised industry and an unpleasant shopping experience into an organised structure. With its many brands purposely designed for all segments of society, SSKL offers a one-of-a-kind shopping experience at an affordable price.
Our focus has always been fulfilling consumer need through purchase-behaviour insights, and most importantly, making fashion available that is for the moment, mood and marriage.
