JK’s legacy started when India was under a British rule, Even then JK took a bold stance and embarked on a path away from catering to the British and European markets to creating products related to Indian culture for our own urban and rural markets.

Thus creating a brand identity of its own by setting up a major industrial venture of JK Cotton Limited in 1921 in Kanpur which later on gained a foothold PAN India
