Kankatala, at the threshold of turning 75 years presents a never-before Regal Collection of Sarees inspired by the Bold & Beautiful Queens of Andhra. Each Collection reflects a queen’s distinctive character. Come experience this historical journey which is a tribute to you for making Kankatala what it is today.

Dressed in turquoise and blue is Maharani Adi Laxmi Devamma and in a rich pink kanchi-pattu sari with heavy zari work is Rani Akkadevi. Beloved of Quli Qutub Shah – Rani Bhagmati – is draped in a rich Banarasi sari with antique zari work and our very own Visakhapatnam queen Rani Chandramani Devi is imagined in her timeless grace in a humble khadi with rich jamdani work. Nayakuralu Nagamma stands proud in a nine-yard yellow kanchi sari while Rani Rudramma Devi stands draped in a red kanchi-pattu beauty.

The collection has been receiving great response on social media & through word of mouth, leaving everyone mesmerised with the beauty and grandeur of it all. Kankatala has shared a few pictures of the shoot behind-the-scenes and the details in the pictures are just as beautiful as the collection itself.
