Ever since my school days, I was torn between two ambitions: becoming an entrepreneur and being a creative person. It was hard to choose between the two.
Trying to strike a balance, I completed a course in Fashion Design and Information Technology from NIFT, New Delhi. My first job after that was as a lead designer with an Ahmedabad-based firm that designed Christmas décor. However, I let it go when I married into a business family from Kolkata.
My new family owned a cosmetic manufacturing company that was chiefly into exports.
While my family became my priority at that time, I remained determined to follow through with my ambitions some day. My husband and father-in-law played huge roles, eventually, for me to pave my way. With their profound experience in the cosmetics industry, they looked for a range of products that would not only fill in a prominent need gap in the market, but also evolve into a brand that offered the best quality to customers.
This would lead to the birth of a unique brand of premium hair products: The Earth Collective.
