Samudrika - Sankya Lakshanam

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 06:47:00 +0000

Our flagship saree collection - Samudrika - is the perfect choice for the bride-to-be. You can take our word for it, because it is not just any silk saree but a craftsman’s finest piece of work, crafted to sheer perfection with heart and soul!                                                                                             There can be a range of options from which the bride can choose from her muhurtham saree, but sophisticated and esteemed attire in the bridal trousseau is Samudrika.So why is our Samudrika popular with brides? Because this is the only saree that carries the virtues of the perfect Muhurtha Pattu! The virtues being classic, exclusive, unique, including traditional artwork, in a pure Kancheepuram Pattu Saree. Sounds compelling, doesn’t it?Picture your wedding, where you’re dressed in our Samudrika collection looking regal and resplendent, stealing the entire crowd’s attention while your groom's sight fixated on you! What more can a bride ask for?We all invest a lot in recording the important details of the big day, through invitations, photographs, videos etc.; the joy in revisiting the whole experience is beyond the scope of explanation. Pothys has come up with an innovative concept in making the big day extra special!! Presenting Sankhya Lakshanam - the rare art of weaving names of the bride and groom in the Samudrika wedding saree. The concept has been welcomed by many couples and has set a new trend in Bridal wear!This idea is not just for new, young couples but is also a good gift for couples who are celebrating their 20th, 40th 60th wedding anniversaries!! The concept has evolved from weaving names to important dates like- mother's or the baby’s name along with the seemantham date.From weaving names and dates, we have taken this thought to whole new heights where an entire photograph can be woven in the silk saree!!!                                           Kamal Haasan was taken aback when he heard the significance and exquisiteness of Samudrika in an exclusive interview with our MD Mr Ramesh, even cracking a joke, “At this speed, Pothys can weave an entire movie in a single saree!”You have heard enough about our Samudrika - Sankhya Lakshanam! Go ahead, visit our showroom to get one for yourself! [...]

Be Summer Ready

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 12:33:00 +0000

Here is a quick look at what’s trending this season.

This summer season is all about going light and bright! Wear airy and loose fitting clothes. Cotton, cotton based fabrics like silk cotton, khadi, raw silk, etc are recommended. If you feel that the weather is compelling you to wear light and simple clothes then jazz it up with some jewellery!

Make sure not to overdo your look! While choosing your outfit of the day, subtle and pastel colours are ideal but when you want to make a dull day interesting, try solid colours that pop! Choose a cotton patiala or a chudidar over denims!

One of the best tips for this summer is to go easy on the accessories - Stick to lightweight earrings like studs or delicate drop earrings and replace a close neck piece with a colourful long beaded chain or a beautiful short pearl chain!

At our store, we have stocked up on fresh designs to fulfill your thirst to look chic and to stay in vogue! Pick your favourites from our collections.

1. For the saree lovers- for those to adore sarees and wear them most often, here’s a list from our store: Uppada, Soft silk, Mysore silk, Maheswari cotton, Organza, Chiffon, Dupion and more!


2. Chudidhar fanatics - Is comfort your top priority? Here’s what we have for you - Readymade & in Unstitched sets in materials that range from Raw silk, Net, Pure cotton, Georgette and more!


You can get the best of both - traditional & modern worlds at Pothys. It's the perfect destination to shop for authentic traditional designs as well as trending contemporary ones!

Thu, 31 Mar 2016 07:14:00 +0000

The sun is shining brighter than ever and it’s time to get rid of the warm clothes. This summer, pack your closet with light weight, soft and comfortable clothes.Keep these 3 things in mind while you shop:1. Fabric: If the material feels thick or coarse, drop it.2. Colour: The saying “Do not wear black on a sunny day” is not a myth! The truth is that, the colour black and any dark shade for that matter absorbs heat and makes you feel hotter.3. Type: On a general note, stick to wearing moderately fitting clothes. Clothes that fit perfectly can be suffocating and can become a nuisance. The type of dress you wear on a summer day can make or break your day! Ethnic wear has got the widest collection to choose from. From sarees to salwar suits to festive lehengas, we have something for everyone’s need! At least 60% of Indian women wear sarees on a regular basis.

For other casual, informal events try these - Georgette designer sarees, Chiffon, Linen sarees, Organza and Mysore silk sarees and for the daily-affairs, pile up on Pure cotton, Silk cotton, Maheshwar cotton and Bengal cotton.                                                                                       From the remaining 40% of Indian women, 25% wear salwar suits.
