Seematti Bridal Sarees
The store that had a modest beginning in 1910 at Alappuzha with a paltry 4000 sq.ft floor area has now evolved into a sprawling textile mall with a slew of distinct features. Now, the combined facility and utility area of Seematti is a whopping five lakh sq.ft with car park and excellent infrastructure. Textile maverick S. Veeriah Reddiar sowed the seeds of textile revolution in Kerala by opening the first Seematti store in 1910. In the succeeding decades, Seematti branched out to all major centers in Travancore like Changanassery, Thiruvalla, Chengannur, Pathanamthitta, Kollam, Kayamkulam, Adoor, Trivandrum etc. In early 1950’s, Seematti Kottayam was born. Beena Kannan’s father V. Thiruvenkitam, son of Veeriah Reddiar continues to be the leading light of Seematti Kottayam. He not only expanded Seematti Kottayam but also founded Seematti Kochi handing over the reins of the latter to his daughter Beena and son-in-law Veeriah alias Kannan.
