Customers are becoming aware of the necessity to protect our planet and make it a sustainable place to live in. Though their willingness to pay extra for organic T-shirts is still low, it is definitely showing an upward trend,” Mazumdar explains.

In future, we plan to target Tier II cities and also international marketplaces. As Mazumdar informs, “We are in talks with several international marketplaces who have reached out to us for partnerships.”
