The late Mr Alagappa Chettiar, who hails from a business community of South India, founded Chamundi Silks, in 1947. He was traditionally from the banking business, but ventured into manufacture of handloom cotton Saris. Success inspired him to continue in the manufacturing of silk Saris and fabrics.


With his foresight to expand the silk business, Mr Chettiar sent his son, Mr Muthiah, and his daughter-in-law Valli Muthiah, to Japan, to study and receive valuable training in the Silk Industry.


Mr Muthiah specialized as a silk technologist and Mrs Muthiah trained in dyeing and printing. They are associated with the company for the last 55 years, as Managing Director and Executive Director. Their vast experience, rich taste, and above all, a great passion for Textiles, has earned Chamundi its reputation of being known for innovative, creative and reliable textiles, worldwide.
