So much love for her and the heart behind why she started in this business. 💛 She has kindly shared more of her story so that you all can know her a little better. *name has been removed to protect her privacy*
“I am from a tiny village near Jaipur, India. So many people said that I joined business at an early age, but according to me, age is just a number; we learn things with our experiences in our life.
Our company was established by my Dad in our village. He used to do kantha work with the help of rural ladies. I've grown up seeing all these things and what I observed at an early age was that they never get recognition and identification for their hard work.
Here I came with the only advice of Dad ‘always keep your feet in your employees and customers shoes, try to understand what they want and expect from you, and try not hurt anybody then only you can be an Entrepreneur and a successful business lady.’
I joined the business to enhance it online, as my father isn’t comfortable in English. Although Indian people don’t support a girl working with men, my father always supports me and always believe that I’m not less than a man and I can also have the liberty to work and carry out my dreams. Now my father and I work together with his experience and my passion.
I continued business in my village only so I can be in touch with ladies who perform handiwork; we can share ideas on how we can merge tradition with fashion so we can always share something new with everyone.
I've started my journey with passion and dedication so I can see happy faces all over.”
