Journeying towards a promising future!

25 years! It certainly feels good to say this.

As we stand at the threshold of the future, looking forward to the next 25 and beyond, we are filled with a deep sense of satisfaction and gratitude.

Of course, we have a new story to write and we are not going to rest on our past laurels. But we do want to pause for a moment and look back at the memorable journey that helped us build a solid foundation and led us thus far.

It all started in 1993 when we stepped into the saree retail scene in the textile hub of Chennai. The market was competitive and the challenges were aplenty. But we were not daunted by the task ahead, as we set about carving a unique niche, with an accent on providing customer delight, quality and exclusivity. From being an exclusive store for Kanjivaram silk sarees, we grew over the years to become a destination store for a wide variety of sarees such as tussar, linen , cotton , raw silk, soft silk , banarasiikat and many more.
 
Our trip down memory lane takes us to our old store in Alwarpet, Chennai, opposite the Hanuman temple (incidentally, the temple is where our founder came up with the name ‘Tulsi’, as he saw the sacred leaves that stood for everything he believed his brand should stand for).

 This store was our home for 20 long years and this is where we honed our skills, shaped our values and vision, and fine-tuned our service. The hard work and efforts we put in at this  store steered our natural progression into our current store in Chennai

From a single-floor store to a larger, more spacious showroom across three floors (besides exclusive space for our admin and design teams), we have indeed come a long way. When we started out in 1993, we had around 40 staff members. Now our family has grown into nearly 100 people. We say ‘family’ because that’s what we are, in every sense of the term. 

Beyond numbers, we have grown intrinsically too. Our beliefs of quality and customer delight have grown stronger, our commitment towards handloom weavers has become deeper, and our vision to preserve our country’s heritage has evolved further.

On this momentous occasion, we wish to thank all our customers for their boundless affection, motivation and support, every step of the way. We also wish to express our gratitude to the weavers we work with-for sustaining the ancient art of weaving and giving life to our dreams and designs. A big thank-you to all our vendors, well-wishers, patrons and staff. We could not have come this far without you. 

The experiences and learnings of the last 25 years have been invaluable and we believe they will hold us in good stead in the days to come.

Thank you all once again!
