What inspired you to establish Aachho?
Since childhood I admired my mom’s elegant way of style. I love wearing Rajputi poshaks and pure chiffon saris. At my wedding in 2015, my mother gifted me exquisite centuryold gold-zari Rajputi poshak, which I later traced into the new fabric and blended it into fusion. These poshaks were passed from one generation to another. I still kept them intact which are adorned with big peacock motifs with real gold and silver work. During my college time, I
designed ethnic attires from my Mom's bandhej / lehriya Saari collection, making masterpieces of the traditional yet contemporary silhouettes. On the other hand, my partner Anurag always was fascinated with beautiful heritage palaces, forts, memorials, museums, and cultural diversity. He had traveled most of the heritage properties and love to explore forts and palaces.

On the education presence, I am a software engineer from SRM University, Chennai, a coder, and had worked with MNC. Anurag is a Masters's in business management from Pune and digital marketing from XLRI, having vast experience in e-commerce and payments. The combination of both our interest and expertise led to seed the idea of Aachho.

Walk us through the journey of the company.

Both came up with the wordmark “Aachho”. The terminology reflects the belongingness of Rajasthan. The regional Marwari word means “Too Good". Idea was to take inspiration from the ancient craft of hand block
printing to add an edge to their silhouettes.
