The brand seeks partnerships with like minded professional retailers who share the passion for creating and developing the brand.


Brand proposition

Design, technology and the passion to create something new and different has been the DNA elements of the brand since inception. The world market of which India today is an integral part has been the brand’s target and it has already carved a niche in the highly competitive and demanding markets of the US, Europe and Australia.


The challenges overcome

Retail in India is an expensive proposition with abnormally high rentals and other operating costs.  This coupled with the fact that Retail Sales and Store Management talent is at a premium pushes up operating costs.  Product designers of the brand are dedicated to creating products that are suited for the Indian tastes and uses, giving the brand required fillip. 


Expansion plan

The brand seeks to grow to about 8-10 stores over the next 18 months and want to deepen store-in-store relationships with modern and traditional retail.
