Meet a woman who is passionate, determined and turned her idea into a reality by building a successful business and living a life she dreamed of, Preeti Suri, owner of a fresh new Retail Initiative- Dastkari Collections.
From operations in BPO industry to Quality Head title, she was quite contented with her 21yrs long successful corporate career, but wanted to take a break and spend time with the family. She wanted to relax and unwind and go easy in life with no rush, and decide what she enjoys to pursue that as a profession.
It took almost 1.5 years to make me realize my true calling. I was always fond of styling up and beautifying things around me, be it home décor stuff, furniture, clothes, watches, shoes, almost anything. I heeded to my calling and decided that I will be an entrepreneur and start my venture with one product line initially- ‘ceramics’.
– tells Preeti who is not only Eco(H) by education but also a trained textile designer.
She took her first step as an entrepreneur in January 2016 with a range of Home Décor and Lifestyle products which were a fusion of Modern and the Rustic, Cosmopolitan and the Traditional.
As they say, the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, Preeti started sharing her hand-picked merchandise range with friends & acquaintances. The feedback was overwhelming !…and there was no looking back.
Within no time, her collection became quite sizable with new additions like ‘Stoneware Ceramic’ Dinner Sets and Tableware, ‘Block print’ Durries, ‘Concept Furniture’ made from Reclaimed Wood and lovely Quilted Patchwork Bedspreads, with vibrant floral themes.
Initially, she used avenues like social media and exhibitions to share her product range with larger groups and very soon her deliberations to go to the next level concluded with a decision of setting up a boutique store where she could display her exquisite collection conveniently for everyone to visit.
Hence, Dastkari Collections got it’s first physical address at Shahpurjat, New Delhi in April 2016 where connoisseurs could visit and have a dekko at her amazing collection.
It’s a welcoming store – vibrant and cosy, carrying a bit of vintage look and feel about it, with an appealing product display. The feedback from customers has been very encouraging and with each day I get the confidence that I am moving in the right direction. Eventually, I added more product line, keeping my collection very eclectic and elegant and different !
-says Preeti, who is a confident self-made entrepreneur.
With love & passion of making every home a cozy and lovable nest, she included an array of Décor pieces which are handmade and quirky; small knick-knacks to fill in those little spaces in your house, lively Cushions, Bedspreads, Place-mats and Rugs made in combinations of Jute, chindi, denim , block prints; Leather utility boxes , trousseau packing, Trays made in tweed and leather, Watch boxes, Suitcases; a huge range of Ceramics including Jars, Platters, Dinner sets, Tea sets etc.; unusual Lamps made of industrial pipes, old scooters and cycle parts, trendy wall pieces and lots more.
