It also plans to open exclusive brand stores for customers to experience the product and to invest in technology to enhance its production, supply chain and forecasting capabilities. 

Himanshu Chawla, Shrey Sehgal, and Suman Patra founded the company in 2016 and claim to have catered to over 6 million customers to date pan-India. The company recently expanded its operations to Jaipur, Chandigarh, Lucknow, and some smaller cities like Meerut, Panipat, Karnal, and Rohtak, to have a stronger national presence.
