The idea was conceived in 2012, when a friend and I realized how many sarees/saris and other used Indian clothing our mothers had in their closets.

Unused and unworn, we thought, “What a shame!” I tried selling my own mother’s saris on Ebay, Amazon, and Craigslist but found that these websites took a large commission or there weren’t enough buyers.

And so began the journey to create a website…
