golghar is an effort to bring the ethnic forte of Banaras (Varanasi) to the people who value it. The fusion of tradition with modernity gives rise to a fashion statement that goes well beyond conventional form of dressing; it renders a unique feel and confidence. 

Started way back in 1966, our roots are over half a century old with a strong hold in women fashion and clothing pertaining to Indian Subcontinent. A business now entering into the third generation of stakeholders; going strong because of our forefathers who were great visionaries. 

Our first brick and mortar store started in the neighborhood of Golghar, Varanasi (India) and we continue to serve customers worldwide by the same store to this date. The neighborhood of Golghar has been known to serve the best ethnic products from a long time. Since inception, we have been working towards its growth and have become market leader in the locality.

It is the first of its kind Garment Manufacturing unit in Eastern Uttar Pradesh and is located at Rajatab, Varanasi.
