Kanakadharasilks.com, the newest destination for the finest kanjivaram silk drapes was launched by Padmabhushan Sangita Kalanidhi Sudha Ragunathan.
Thestory of Kanakadhara is a story of a community that holds the craftsmanship and knowledge of an art that, in itself, has created a legacy. It is a story of how this community brings happiness, identity, uniqueness and confidence to women. It is the story that sheds light on India’s inimitable rich heritage that stood all trials. It is the story of inheritance, the one that grandmothers and mothers pass through saris that you can treasure for a lifetime.
Founded by two friends Archana Abishek and Lavanya Sekar, Kanakadhara shows us that sarees are not just six yard drapes; every piece is a canvas that displays the artistic minds and hands of our weavers. Each Kanakadhara product is experimented to provide a unique and individual identity. It is a masterpiece of our weavers’ art work. Every thread is woven with hard work, humility and love for this legacy. Kanakadhara is not just a brand but an initiative with sincere effort to bring acknowledgment, respect and empowerment to the weavers’ community.
Carefully-curated for every occasion, the collections at Kanakadhara include dailywear, partywear as well as bridal sarees. Customisation for Bridal sarees and blouses are also undertaken. Made with pure Kanjivaram silk, Kanakadhara Sarees come with traditional patterns and motifs like the elephant, peacocks, lotus and swan motifs.
Kanakadhara sources sarees directly from these weavers and eliminates middlemen to ensure affordable pricing.
Kanakadhara Konnect is a movement initiated to honor our weavers, a part of Kanakadhara’s profit will solely be used for the education of our weaver’s children. We believe this would not only empower the entire family but will ensure a better future. Each time you purchase a Kanakadhara product, you are directly contributing to the future of a child.
