Get to know the story behind the team of Banarsi Designs.
In March 2012, our journey to travel from USA to Dubai was set in motion to explore a whole new country and culture. What was intended to be just a vacation turned into a business trip after we discovered very unique, colorful, and luxurious Indian textiles and fabrics during our stay.
We unexpectedly met with the owner of an Indian textile fabric who introduced us to their exclusive collection of table linens, bedding, and accessories. At that point, we began thinking about starting our own business in the USA to offer these beautiful products to a brand new audience. After giving the idea more thought, we decided to go for it and establish a partnership with them.
From Vision to Reality
On our 14 hour flight back to United States, we brainstormed ideas on how to begin building our new brand. This is when the “Banarsi Designs” name was born. Once we returned home, it was time to move forward.
Banarsi Designs’ vision is to offer decorative linens and bedding so that individuals, and businesses such as hotels, restaurants, and event planning companies can bring exclusive décor to all kinds of occasions.
With so many unique color combinations that we had, that meant a lot of pictures needed to be taken for our website, which led to many long days and nights.
At first we thought: how hard can photography really be? Just shoot the picture on a table and you’re done, right? Oh man, were we in for a rude awakening!
Taking photos of our products turned out to be one of the most challenging aspects over the next 6 months. After trial and error with multiple digital cameras, we quickly realized that in order to do things the right way, we had to invest in a professional camera. Getting the right shot during the initial phases turned out to be a not-so-easy task. We had to do a lot of research on lighting techniques, and how to deal with shadows and camera features. Over the next coming weeks we spent hours on forums to get a better handle on the entire process of photography.
We continued to work as quickly as we could, encountering other challenges along the way, while putting all of the pieces together in place. After getting the structure of the website, product descriptions, all pictures, and other important projects completed, we started to get ready to launch our website.
On October 4th, 2012 Banarsi Designs (www.banarsidesigns.com) was launched to the public and we couldn’t be more excited!
We hope you fall in love with our products the way we did by exploring our Banarsi Designs collection.
