If you are under the impression that Indians lack creativity, then you must take a look at the brand new company in Kolkata :Refittings.
Here is why-Yamika Mehra ,the founder of refittings, felt inconvenient due to the way the tailors worked here in kolkata . She often found her alteration works neglected for days ! She knew she wasn’t the only one facing this problem, so she decided to launch an online clothing alterations service , along with co-founder Gautam Rath.
Refittings social enterprises.
Their business model includes home pick ups, alterations and deliveries all over kolkata. Online orders are also taken,and all these are done at a very reasonable price ,just like their website declares: “give us a garment that fits you and all the ones that don’t. We will alter them for as low as Rs.99/garment”.
But that is not just it, they hire only women tailors who work from home, and help them lead a better life.
Yes, that is how unique this startup is!
Starting off from November 2017 till now, Refittings earned the trust of more than 200 customers and have tailored over 2000 garments ! An achievement sure enough!
Refittings aim is to reach out to more and more people to share their idea . It also wants to let the people know about their work as a company that takes care of the society while contributing to the economy! The company is expected to expand to the major Indian cities in the next few years.
