Kanakavalli invites you to discover Reiya–a line of kanjivarams that have undergone a series of hand processes that soften, tint and age the drape, reminiscent of the many saris handed down over generations, that form a part of our cultural DNA. Marked by age-muted zari, a sumptuously bodied but butter soft hand feel, and a colour palette that runs the gamut from subtle to bold, the Reiya kanjivaram celebrates the enhanced tactile and visual beauty that time bestows on this classic weave.
Perfect for the festive season in a year marked by change and challenge for all of us, the Reiya kanjivaram symbolises the reimagining of the ideas of memory and nostalgia while bringing together the past and the present, the old and the new, in a truly unique aesthetic.

To accompany the collection, we bring you a photographic portrait study of nine diverse women on our social media, wearing the Reiya kanjivaram in their own inimitable style, and pushing the boundaries of the sari drape.
