We Checked Out This Iconic Brand's Eight-Floor Sari Store And It's Worth Blowing Up Your Cash On
What Makes It Awesome
If you have spent time in Tamil Nadu, then chances are you have attended at least one of Pothy’s famous Ugadi sales. And you know this iconic store is worth all the brouhaha. So imagine our excitement when the grand Pothy’s opened up in Bangalore, in what is perhaps the grandest of them all. With eight floors dedicated to just sarees, ethnic wear, dhotis, men’s wear, wedding wear, kids wear, and casual wear, it’s not hard to splurge. You’ll walk out with at least a few duffel bags, after your spree here. No, really, they use duffel bags.
Located in Majestic, the first three floors of Pothy’s is dedicated to just saris of all kinds — synthetic, cotton, designer, fancy sarees, and Kancheepuram silks saris. In fact, the second floor is dedicated to Kancheepuram silks of all colours, designs and prices. That includes super grand designer silk options for the bride. The ground floor and the first floor houses daily wear saris, embroidered, printed, and in Pothy’s trademark styles of Kalamkari, Pochampally, and Mysore silk. Even their modern mixes of silk and chiffon will make you OD on sarees. And we have just scratched the surface.
If saris are not your thing, head to the third floor where readymade lehengas, kurtis, anarkalis, and chudidars are all in abundance. Simple to grand, embroidered to embellishment, everyday to occasion wear, and traditional to modern are some (yes, some) of the designs available here. Materials are also available on this floor. The men’s suiting and shirting, and dhoti section are also on this floor. Maybe get a nice dhoti for your neighbourhood thatha for his birthday. The kid’s section which takes up the whole of the fifth floor has everything for toddlers, kids, and teens. The sixth floor is dedicated to men for readymade wear. Formal wear, casual wear, home wear, loungewear, accessories, and suits and blazers are what this floor consists of.
Still getting finishing touches, the top two floors are meant to stock ethnic wear for men and groom collections. We did tell you it’s perfect for a family outing, right?
