Sought after supplier of South Asian fashions and expansion of Kala Kendar – Mainstay of the Gerrard India Bazaar since 1976.
Kala Kendar carries silk dupionni, and an assortment of silk-synthetic blends in gorgeous colours and patterns, in about the same price range. Kala Kendar is an excellent place to bargain for sarees. If you have never purchased a saree, be aware that they come in cotton, synthetics (aka “art silk” or artificial silk–most of which are much nicer than synthetic silk substitutes found in regular stores) and many grades of silk. You can pay as little as $50 for a pure silk saree, or as much as thousands. Most of the nice sarees are kept behind the counter; tell the clerk what colour you are looking for and they will bring them out for you. They also have an excellent trim department, and the prices are quite reasonable.
