Rangachari Cloth Store started in a car garage in 1945, and has grown into a household name since then. It is one of my favourite places in Chennai for Chettinad cottons. Sungidis. Or Mangalagiris. Or indeed, any traditional cottons. Check out their Venkatagiris and Pochampallis also. http://www.rangachariclothstore.com/
