2019 was a thrilling year for us at Six Yards Plus.
A year filled with new beginnings and unchartered territory for a small start up like ours.
We went from 1 retail location to 4, 3 employees to 10 and brought more than 35 types of weaves from 12 states of India under our roof, expanding our network of weavers and artisans and supporting their eco system in our small way.
We launched the 6YP signature series, adding artisanal sarees specially created by us for you.
We won a hard fought competition for women entrepreneurs and were also recognised for our work.
We moved into a beautiful new office that provides the perfect environment for us to work on going to the next level.
We started the fun coffee mornings at our adda, and also continued to spread our saree love through workshops and exhibitions.
We collaborated with like minded entrepreneurs, taking us one step closer to our aim of creating a community of women entrepreneurs who are addressing pressing environmental and social issues.
And of course we met many many inspiring women and brought sarees into their lives.
But most importantly it was, for me, and for all of us at Six Yards Plus, a year where so many of you came out to support us in this journey. From giving me timely and sound advice, willingly trudging across town to support us in the pink power competition, coming out in huge numbers to support the opening of our new office and store, continuously encouraging us on social media, giving me valuable feedback, opening your connections out to us to being patient with all my doubts and overthinking ... you've all been the core that drives us to do even better.
As we look forward into the next decade, here is a heartfelt thank you from the bottom of my heart. To the Six Yards Plus community that inspires, energizes and motivates us everyday to do better.
A very happy new year from all of us.
