Here is the background from the Designer Herself – Sugandh:
Hi there! I’m Sugandh, (Sue-gun-d) the designer and artist behind GUNAS. I have been trained as an industrial designer and am dedicated to utilizing my fashion skills and business acumen for a cause very close to my heart.
Having grown up in India, a country where cows are worshipped and ironically also slaughtered for their meat and skin I witnessed this cruelty first hand and knew deep within that I had to do something about it someday.
With the help of family and friends I put all my life savings into building GUNAS from the ground up. The initial days of entrepreneurship were hard and yet enjoyable.
I started the company in my one bedroom apartment in Manhattan and recall walking several blocks in the city on a daily basis carrying boxes of fabrics and samples for GUNAS a dream I knew I had to turn into reality.
My passion and perseverance never became dull even for a moment. I’ve had to push my comfort zone and really put myself out on the line. But I believe that when you are out to do good, all the forces of the universe will conspire to make things happen in your favor.
