I am registered as an independent.

How long did the registration process take from start to finish & your experience with it.

I will say the process was very smooth and quick, it took a few weeks. The fact that I am Post Graduate is in International Trade made the process even easier.

Why do you do what you do?

Academically, I have a Post Graduate Diploma in International Trade and professionally, I have worked in the corporate world of logistics for over 10 years. Now as a mother of a 6 year old, I have embarked to do something of my own. This is to achieve a work-life balance that allows me time as a mother while also giving me the opportunity to pursue what I am passionate about.

I have always been inspired by beautiful homes. Because, every home says who you are, I feel it is very important to style up your home in a way that reflects your personality, thoughts as well as ideas. Keeping that in mind, I founded Les Sûtras.

Also, I have been very inspired by the women entrepreneurs of India, we mostly collaborate and encourage women entrepreneurs from India and help them to showcase to the world, the art and designs of the skilled artisans from India.
