Sai Silks (Kalamandir) Limited is among the top 10 retailers of ethnic apparel, particularly sarees, in south India, in terms of revenues and profit after tax in Fiscal 2020, 2021 and 2022 (Source: Technopak Report). Through its four store formats, i.e. Kalamandir, VaraMahalakshmi Silks, Mandir and KLM Fashion Mall, the company caters to various segments of the market, including premium ethnic fashion, ethnic fashion for middle-income and value-fashion, with a variety of products across different price points, thereby catering to customers across all market segments.

Apart from the masses, the company launched “Valli Silks,” which is a combination of the KLM Fashion Mall and VaraMahalakshmi Silks store formats, in December 2022. To cater to niche segments available in certain geographies, the company has created derivates of its existing formats. For instance, in September 2022, they launched “Kalamandir Royale,” where they offer products with higher price points and more exclusive collections.

The company’s EBITDA increased from Rs. 623.61 in Fiscal 2021, to Rs. 2,125.31 in Fiscal 2023 (In Rupees Million). The EBITDA margin increased from 9.21% to 15.73% respectively, for the same Fiscal period.
