Meet #Ashwini Ambike and #Rujuta Patwardhan, the two sisters who started helping their dad in his business of manufacturing tungsten coils! One an accountant and the other an engineer, both handled different departments, sharing the responsibilities like two consenting daughters, assisting their dad in growing their family business. They thoroughly enjoyed the process and learnt the ropes of running an enterprise from their father.
Both of them Joint directors of their company, they personally looked after the day to day manufacturing process.
Having created a name for themselves they wanted to try out new territories where they could explore their creative side, indulge in something colourful, different from the mechanical manufacturing process and hence together they started #ColoursOfIndia, a venture where they curate fabrics from all over India and sell them through exhibitions.
As the name suggests Colours of India is their initiative to give ladies a glimpse of beautiful fabrics from all the colourful states of the rich and diverse country that is India!
In a country as diverse and culturally vibrant as ours, it is perhaps the common, simple expressions of color that hold together the multitudes of outlooks, lifestyles, and traditions. Colours play an important role in our culture and the sisters believe in celebrating these colours through their venture!
The sisters handpick the different fabrics, dress materials and dupattas and bring them to Pune and sell it through exhibitions. Being surrounded by colours gives them a high and interacting with like minded women and helping them shop is something they look forward to.
Very soon they are coming up with a space in Sahakar Nagar, a company warehouse which they would like to be developed as a shop cum community space where like minded women can come together and showcase their handcrafted products, take workshops and revel in the beautiful colours of India.
Ashwini and Rujuta here’s wishing you all the best for your venture! May your venture Colours of India add a dash of colour to our lives!
