Through an inspiring journey of 22 years, Kalanidhi has crossed numerous thresholds that have disseminated positivity in the society. Since inception in 1998, Kalanidhi has always been the benchmark of innovation and gratitude bundled together.
While giving the discerning, erudite woman of today what she craves for, Kalanidhi has also created trends that most others only can follow far behind.
Founded by visionary Shri Raysibhai Karia, Kalanidhi grew fold by fold from a mere 300 square feet saree store into a 5000 square feet studio catering to every whim and fancy of the modern Indian woman looking for that finest ethnic garment she can flaunt with pride. As the reigns changed hands from the father to son, Shri Amit Karia took over the mantle and strode into a tireless growth mode.
With Amit Karia’s ground-breaking ideas and concepts, Kalanidhi has gained massive patronage by becoming one of the best known and desired brands in Mumbai -Thane region. Today, Kalanidhi is synonymous not only with sarees, but also an entire gamut of Indian women’s wear which includes lehengas, salwar kameez & Indo-western wear.
Some of the most famous celebrities and the who’s who of Maharashtra are a common sight at the Kalanidhi store. A keen eye of tracking trends and identifying the right resources has helped Amit Karia garner towering fandom for his store.
It is said that a store is nothing but the reflection of its owner’s taste. Shri Amit Karia’s in-depth knowledge in his domain took roots right from his teenage days. His penchant towards fashion and understanding of couture was spotted by his family right when he would choose clothes for his sister. Sensing the inclination Shri Raysibhai Karia diversified into Saree trade . This was nothing less than a challenge that made Amit work hard to build an empire that is almost like a bridge between the customer and the weaver.
Amit traveled through the lengths and breadths of India yearning to bring something new to his customers. He went on a quest to discover weavers who were never exposed to the modern world. He collaborated with them to create gorgeous designs which instantly became hit with his discerning audience. Amit is one of the very few designers who can customize the any product for his customer’s delight not only in India but also around the world. This, in a certain way, helped the Indian handloom industry find avenues to display the hidden talents globally.
Kalanidhi is no more a typical saree store but is a studio that curates almost every variety of saree created in the remotest parts of India that are almost works of art you can wear. The inconclusive list boasts of Paithani, Kanjivaram,Benarasi,Gadwal,Ikkat Maheshwari sarees created by some of the award winning master craftsmen and weavers.
Through an export wing named Krishna Exim (India), Kalanidhi has expanded beyond boundaries of India. Amit Karia’s customised creations have found appreciation in international market. His Indo-Western and ethnic wear are essentials at many wedding and functions where you find the Indian diaspora.
Giving back to the society is an attitude gained from immaculate upbringing. Indebted to the society for a 20 year successful stint, It was a good idea to celebrate the anniversary by honouring the women for their remarkable contribution to the society. Kalanidhi announced the ‘Kalanidhi Woman of Substance Awards’ where 100 women from various fields were felicitated for their contribution to the upliftment of the society. The award meant not only to honour the recipients but also to motivate more and more women to come forward and help the society in their own way.
Kalanidhi has earned itself the stature of being synonymous with womanhood. One that not only stands by the woman in her thick and thin but also provides a platform that raises them to true equality in the real world. For Kalanidhi every woman is a gem that glitters when polished. And it has pledged to do so in the future and for always.
