The Hirdaramani legacy began in 1890 when at, just 16, Parmanand Hirdaramani set up the first Hirdaramani retail store in Fort, Colombo. He made a name for himself in the early 1900s by introducing the concept of same-day tailoring to passengers of cruise liners that docked at the Colombo Harbour.

Through continuous products innovation and maintenance of the stringent quality standards that the company is renowned for, we are proud to be the preferred choice for leading international brands such as Marks & Spencer, Tesco, True Religion, Levi's, Ralph Lauren and Tommy Hilfiger.

In 2013 the Hirdaramani Group launched Sri Lanka's first ever multi brand luxury watch boutique, Chatham Luxury Watches. A Joint Venture with Sifani Jewellers, Chatham features some of the world’s most desirable watch brands - Cartier, Jaeger-LeCoultre, IWC, Chopard and OMEGA.
Our commitment to promote Green Energy sources in the industrial sector of Sri Lanka led us to explore and venture into the field of renewable energy. As national grids come under pressure because of increases in consumption both on an industrial as well as a residential level, renewable sources are becoming increasingly necessary for power generation, and therefore are a key focus area for the Group.
With the perfect blend of varied natural landscapes from pristine beaches to lush hillsides, a mix of diverse cultures and a rich historical heritage, all complemented with a unique hospitality, Sri Lanka is the ideal holiday destination.
Returning to the Group's roots in retail in recent years, the company has launched several bespoke clothing lines. Leveraging on the company's vertically integrated infrastructure and experience in understanding and responding to consumer trends, the group looks to continue their expansion in this segment.
