About Us 

  • Sri Palam Silk Sarees - set up in 2003 from a quaint little shop in Pondy Bazaar.
  • Started by Ms. Jeyasree Ravi - daughter of Dr. Nalli Kuppuswamy Chetty and wife of Mr. P J Ravi, son of the Sri Kumaran Stores family.
  • Right from the beginning, had the single minded vision of making silk popular with younger women.
  • Identified problems that put off young women from silk and addressed them through their range:
    • Made the sarees light weight.
    • Replaced traditional colours (like blues and reds) and designs (mango, paisley, temple, etc) with trendy colors (pastels, pinks, etc) and designs (geometric shapes, any possible graphic design!).
    • Used softer silk which while continuing to be pure handloom, pure pattu and pure zari, was much easier to drape and handle.
  • Popular for their muhurtham collections.
  • Also renowned for their concept sarees released over the years which:
    • Spark a lot of discussion over the sheer audacity or bravado of the idea.
    • Help women identify real problems they face while wearing sarees (saree with a pouch, golusu pattu, corporate silk, etc) and simplify life.
    • From a business end, help drive footfalls to just see the concepts but ensures that the walk-in purchases something atleast.
  • Expanded the T Nagar store to include an annexe in 2009.
  • Hosted first ever fashion show for silk sarees in December 2009 in Chennai – Silkline '10.
