What made you think now was the right time to come up with a store in Kolkata? 

Opening a store in Kolkata now aligns with our brand's origin in handloom and handmade textiles. Kolkata has a rich history in arts and culture, particularly in handcrafted textiles, which resonates with our brand's ethos. The city's legacy in arts and craftsmanship is an ideal backdrop for our men's fashion label.

What kind of collections can we get to see in the store? 

Our store in Kolkata offers a diverse range of collections, from ethnic wear to resort wear. You can explore our custom-made Khanijo signature textures, catering to various tastes and occasions for men.
