With the inauguration of this new showroom, we can now offer these values to the people of Bengaluru. We are incidentally probably the first apparel showroom in India to be certified ISO 9001 and the first in South India to launch its own unique brand of silk sarees namely Samudrika, Parampara and Vastrakala. These silk brands stand apart for their richness in silk, exclusivity in design and luxury, genuine zari work and weaving artistry for that special look and feel. Our branded silks are truly heirlooms in their own right and are designed to last for generations to come. Karnataka is a high potential market and we have signed Puneeth Rajkumar and Tamannaah Bhatia as our brand ambassadors for this market. We feel they will add value to our brand as they too share the same brand characteristics of quality and reliability. ”
Pothys also hold a Guinness World Record for creating the world’s longest saree in 2005.
Addressing the media, Puneeth Raj Kumar said, “I am very careful in choosing the brands that I endorse as there needs to be some correlation between the brand and my personal beliefs. Being a strong believer in traditional values, I thought it would be appropriate to associate withPothys given their rich legacy and vibrant history. It s a pleasure to be the face of a homegrown brand that stands for innovation, style and glamour that appeal to people of all ages.”
Pothys was established over 90 years ago by Shri.K V Pothy Moopanar in Srivilliputtur as a showroom selling cotton sarees, dhotis and towels, woven in his own loom. Today Pothys has several stores across Tamil Nadu and is expected to increase its footprint to other states in South India.
